Builder Selected for New SW DC Crime Lab

The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development announced yesterday that is has awarded Whiting-Turner a $133 million contract to construct the District's new Consolidated Forensics Laboratory (CFL) at the former site of the Metropolitan Police Department's First District Headquarters at 415 4th Street, SW.

Designed by HOK Architects, the six-story, 287,000 square foot crime lab will house the forensic arms of not only the police department, but the Department of Health and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as well. According to ODMPED, the new CFL will "coordinate crime, public safety and health investigations to help law enforcement solve crimes quickly without having to rely on other laboratories with competing priorities."

Coming in at a total cost of $220 million (including “specialized equipment”), ODMPED states that the “firm-fixed price contract includes abatement and demolition of the old building as well as a 35 percent set-aside for Certified Business Enterprises.” A date for the demolition has yet to be scheduled, but work continues abreast just around the corner from the CFL site. Early last month, the District officials selected Potomac Investment Properties, City Partners and Adams Investment Group to construct to two, new mixed-use buildings – including a new fire station – just a few hundred yards away on two parcels adjoining 450 6th Street, SW.

Once this happens, the utilized bike is then seized by a repossession organization, and the bank will put it available to be purchased at a repo bike closeout. Cash Advance Chicago
