Secure Government Agency, Arlington, VA
MGAC provided project management services for this new build-to-suit government research entity headquarters. MGAC managed the extensive base building requirements for security, slab loading, blast protection, interior fit-up, broadcast, and technology. Key to the project’s success was MGAC’s management of the base building and interior delivery dates, while mitigating the client’s real estate expense. MGAC also managed procurement of multiple client systems, including furniture, audiovisual, and other special systems.
MGAC’s immediate focus on cost control identified $2.5 million in base building savings for the client. Once under construction, our field observation reports identified an additional $2.76 million in developer-paid corrective actions to the base building. By directly procuring the client’s special furniture, fixtures, and equipment requirements, MGAC was also able to save the client an additional $4.8 million in expenses.
MGAC’s commitment to the scheduled completion date, and the on-time delivery of a two-phased move of 850 employees, ultimately saved the client more than $2 million in “hold-over” rent expense.
