Anthony J. Celebrezze - Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) Renovation and Backfill Project


This is a SOURCES SOUGHT ANNOUNCEMENT for planning purposes only.

The Anthony J. Celebrezze Federal Building located at 1240 East 9th Street in downtown Cleveland was named after Cleveland's 49th mayor, United States Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare and Federal appeals judge Anthony J. Celebrezze. The building was completed in 1967 and houses multiple federal government agency offices. The building has 32 stories, rises to a height of 419 feet and has approximately 1,007,000 square feet of space. The building is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

The project proposes the renovation and backfill of floors 9 through 13 at the Celebrezze Federal Building. The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), currently on the 9th through 13th floors, will consolidate and modernize office space on the 9th through 12th floors. The Department of Labor - Office of Workers' Compensation Programs and the Department of Education, currently in Cleveland area lease locations, will backfill the VBA vacated 13th floor. Several federal tenant agencies including Armed Forces Recruiting, Navy, Railroad Retirement Board, and the Department of Labor - Bureau of Statistics, currently on the 9th and 12th floors, will be relocated to vacant space on other floors in the building to provide continued long-term housing for VBA. This will allow VBA to consolidate office space to fewer floors in the building, all of which would be on the same elevator bank. The project also provides the opportunity to complete much needed shell upgrades and to remove hazardous materials, including Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) fireproofing on affected floors. The scope will include all new ceilings, lighting, fire alarm system, ductwork, VAV boxes and controls. It will also include modification of the 12th floor public toilet rooms for ABAAS compliance, Building Standard common corridor and elevator lobby finishes, tenant improvements, and rework of fire sprinkler drops/replacement of sprinkler heads at renovated floor areas. Optional scope for the project may include the modification of stairwell handrails throughout the building for Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Standard (ABAAS) compliance, as well as combination sprinkler standpipe/riser work.

The design for the project will conform to the Celebrezze Federal Building Design Standards, Facilities Standards for the Public Buildings Service P-100, and other building codes and standards as applicable to this project. Design services which will be accomplished through a separate contract, will be necessary for the renovations and alterations of vacant space to meet; the functional requirements of prospective tenants, fulfill policy and regulatory criteria, and provide state of the art workplaces that help define interior design standards for the building. Designed solutions shall be consistent with the latest objectives of GSA, prospective tenants, and best practices in architectural planning and design.

The space required by prospective tenants is primarily general office space including; both open office area and private offices, ancillary and support space such as conference rooms, break rooms and storage. Prospective tenants include seven federal agencies with a total renovation requirement of approximately 170,000 sf.

The Estimated Construction Cost range is $30 to $60 million.

The Estimated Construction Duration is 4 years.
