The JUDGES’ COMMENTS were: “The daunting task faced by the GSA in finding a developer that would undertake the huge task of relocating an entire federal department,\ within the Washington, [D.C.], area in an impossible timeframe and within a federal set budget, was huge. A collaborative approach among project team members enabled the impossible to be achieved in a cost-effective manner well ahead of schedule. In fact, the development strategy used in this project provides a clear message to other building owners that innovation can work and be cost-effective in our highly competitive marketplace.”
