POSTPONED - DWB: Federal Center South Tour

**This tour is postponed indefinitely. Current registrants have been contacted regarding options, and this page will be updated once a rescheduled date is determined.**

Join us to learn about the redevelopment/modernization of the existing 1202 warehouse located at Federal Center South completed by ZGF in 2012. The integrated design set a new standard for high-performance, cost-effect, and sustainable workplace environments.

The “oxbow” design creates an open, collaborative workplace environment for the USACE, while also reflecting the natural oxbows in the adjacent Duwamish Waterway. An indoor campus environment enhances collective community and identity with a centralized “commons” that becomes the social heart of the building. This shared communal space has become an important connective tissue between departments and allows USACE to accommodate nearly constantly changing team-based work. Natural reclaimed materials further ideas of connection and collaboration through use in stairs, bridges and informal workspace.

ZGF will give additional detail and narrative around this unique building and how it works to improve the mental, physical and social health of USACE employees.

Breakfast will be provided!
