Edward Zorinsky Federal Building
Housing about 1,200 federal workers, the 432,000-square-foot Edward Zorinsky Federal Building is named for the late Edward Zorinsky, a former Omaha mayor and U.S. Senator from Nebraska.
Design and energy-saving features of the building include a three-story atrium and a four-foot-wide daylight corridor around the perimeter of the operating levels. These areas allow the building’s workers ample access to natural sunlight. In addition, exterior lighting shelves reflect light into the building’s core at the ceiling level, while exterior light louvers control excess light and glare from entering the building.
The Zorinsky Federal Building provides top-tier office space, energy-efficient operations, security for employees, and structural durability for the next 50 years and beyond.
