Richard H. Poff Federal Building

Roanoke, Virginia

Project Description

The 14-story Richard H. Poff Federal Building, is an ARRA-funded recladding for the General Services Administration Region 3. When completed, the building will feature a unitized glass and aluminum curtain wall system with integral sunshades at the southern exposure, and metal panel overcladding of precast elements at the building base and crown. The existing facade will be removed and new facade installed while the building is still occupied. The upgrades will improve building energy performance, increase daylighting of interior spaces and create a crisp, new presence on the Roanoke skyline.

Scope of Services

CDC was hired by Balfour Beatty Construction to provide technical consulting services throughout architectural Design Development. CDC advised during building facade procurement, provided observations and verification of technical performance during mock-up testing, reviewed building facade shop drawings and technical submissions prior to construction, and provided quality assurance observations throughout the Construction phase.
