LEO A DALY was selected to provide design services for the Architect of the Capitol (AOC) as part of a fully-funded, $10 million contract.
The firm will work with the AOC to upgrade and modernize some of the most significant and well-known public buildings in the country. LEO A DALY will manage a team of in-house architecture, engineering, planning, and interior design professionals, and nearly 30 specialty subconsultants, including exhibit designers, architectural material restoration experts, fine art conservators, fountain and water display designers, and experts in security assessment and design.
“We anticipate having to execute many simultaneous tasks within very compressed schedules, often with construction in occupied facilities. Our team’s depth of resources and decades of project management experience will give us the agility to meet AOC’s needs on a moment’s notice,” said Roark Redwood, AIA, Vice President and Federal Market Sector Leader, LEO A DALY, in a release.
The AOC is a federal agency responsible for the maintenance, operation, development, and preservation of the United States Capitol Complex, which comprises 17.4 million sf of buildings and more than 553 acres of land throughout Capitol Hill. Some of the more prominent structures include the U.S. Capitol, the Capitol Visitor Center, seven congressional office buildings, the Library of Congress, the United States Supreme Court Building, the United States Botanic Garden, and the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building.
