Consumer Finance Protection Bureau Modernization
Modernization of the six-story, 400,000-SF office building including government offices, child care facility and ground floor retail tenant space
The renovation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), formerly the Federal Home Loan and Bank Board Building, is a significant undertaking aimed to improve and restore one of the District’s finest examples of late 20th century modern architecture.
The building is owned by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and is the headquarters for CFPB. The six-story building is approximately 400,000 GSF. The building program consists of government offices, child care facility and ground floor retail tenant space. The modernization of the CFPB building is a single-phase design-build project. CRTKL’s scope of the design-build contract includes completion of the design to construction documents, construction administration services and securing final approvals from the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, National Capital Planning Commission, State Historic Preservation Office and other local approving authorities.
CRTKL’s design scope included the redesign of Liberty Plaza. Liberty Plaza is an important public space in Washington, DC, adjacent to the Old Executive Office Building and White House. The project is registered with the US Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED® v3.0 Rating System, and is seeking Gold Certification.
