Security Perimeter at St. Elizabeth’s

Role: Framing, Drywall, Rough Carpentry and Acoustical Ceiling
Project Type: Public, Government, DOD
Location: Washington, DC

When St. Elizabeth’s was designated a National Historic Landmark (NHL), there was 70 buildings located on the 176-acre West Campus, 62 of which were identified as contributing to the NHL. Of those 62 buildings, 52 will be reused in the development of the site. Eight of those approved for demolition are greenhouses in significant disrepair that cannot be adaptively reused. Since approval of the Final Master Plan in January 2009, seven buildings have been demolished in preparation for the construction of a new U.S. Coast Guard headquarters.

On January 8, 2009, the National Capital Planning Commission approved the Final Master Plan for the DHS Headquarters Consolidation. The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts approved the Final Master Plan on November 20, 2008. The Final Master Plan provides the development framework for accommodating 4.5 million gross square feet of office space for the DHS headquarters on both the St. Elizabeth’s West and East campuses. The Final Master Plan outlines 3.8 million gross square feet of office space on the West Campus and 750,000 gross square feet of office space on a portion of the East Campus identified as East Campus, North Campus Parcel. The development will be consistent with a DHS Interagency Security Committee Level V campus to house mission-critical Federal agencies.
