Arlington, VA – September 26, 2017 – FD Stonewater announced today it has recently completed construction of an 151,066-square foot build-to-suit facility which is under a long-term lease to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) for use by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The lease contract total value is $101M. The project was completed on time and on budget and is situated on 13 acres of land ground-leased from Mercer University.

This state-of-the-art facility will serve as the FBI’s Atlanta field office and supports the FBI’s mission while ensuring seamless collaboration and integration with state and local law enforcement.

“This new, state-of-the-art building will allow the FBI and its important missions to be carried out more efficiently and effectively in the 21st century, said David J. LeValley, Special Agent in Charge, FBI Atlanta Field Office. “We have ensured that not only is the requisite technology in place, but we’ve also provided for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) led Georgia Information Sharing and Analysis Center (GISAC) to remain co-located with us at this facility. This strategy will ensure that the sharing of information, intelligence, and threat matters remains seamless at all levels of law enforcement within the State of Georgia.”

FD Stonewater is a leader in designing, constructing and owning facilities leased and occupied by the Federal Government. The new FBI Atlanta Field Office is one of 16 long-term build-to-suit lease projects the firm and its affiliates have successfully delivered to the U.S. General Services Administration since the firm’s inception.

“This project was a success on many levels,” said Claiborne Williams, Principal at FD Stonewater. “Our partnership with the government is extremely valuable when it comes to navigating the Federal Government’s highly-specialized process and requirements, and this is what our team does best. We are proud to be a part of a project that will ensure the FBI’s mission-critical functions will be carried out and supported by a best-in-class facility.”

Powers Brown Architecture and Dewberry served as the lead designers for the project and Harvey Cleary Builders served as the project’s general contractor. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated for Thursday, October 12, 2017.
