Clark Completes New Social Security Administration Headquarters
BALTIMORE, Md. – A January 14 ribbon cutting ceremony marked the completion of the new two-building Social Security Administration Headquarters. Clark constructed the 538,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility on an 11-acre campus in northwest Baltimore. The headquarters features two office buildings, five and seven stories respectively, along with an adjacent 1,076-car, above-ground parking garage, and a separate field office.
The new headquarters is designed to earn LEED-NC Silver certification. Among the campus’ sustainable elements are a green roof, a large park, bio-retention ponds, green screens, and a self-sustaining green wall located in the six-story atrium. The facility's proximity to Baltimore's Metro helps the federal government achieve its sustainability goals and the state grow transit ridership, and its economy.
"It was just two short years ago we stood here, in the parking lot, and broke ground," said Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "This [project] means a lot to Baltimore's future ... the type of transit-oriented project we want Baltimore to be known for.
S2N, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Clark, managed the design and installation of the project's low-voltage technology infrastructure, including fiber and copper backbone cabling, the paging system, and first responder radio system.
Developed and owned by The JBG Companies, in a partnership with Klein Enterprises, the headquarters building is being leased to the General Services Administration. AECOM served as the project architect.
