536 S. Clark Street Federal Building and John C. Kluczynski Federal Building

Construction Support Solutions (CSS) has been retained by the General Services Administration (GSA) to perform Construction Manager as Agent (CMa) services for the 9th floor build-out and general building modifications at the 536 S. Clark Street Federal Building and the tenant build-out of offices located at the John C. Kluczynski (JCK) Federal Building.

The 536 S. Clark Street Federal building primarily serves to house the Department of Homeland Security. It was designed in 1912 by Chicago architects Holabird and Roche, acquired by the government in 1952 and is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Since 2006, the building has undergone two separate renovations, totaling over $70 million. This project will build-out roughly half of the 9th floor of the building for Passport Agency offices, including replacement of existing air-handling units. Additionally, a portion of the Clark Street lobby and security screening area are slated for reconfiguration.

The JCK Federal Building houses multiple Federal agencies. It was designed by the renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, completed in 1974 and designated as a National Register Listed building in 2011. In 2009, the building received upgrades to the HVAC system as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This project scope includes a tenant build-out of offices on the 18th, 29th, 37th, 38th and 39th floors.
