Building Projects The Peck Federal Building received $43 million for a modernization and exterior improvement project through the Recovery Act of 2009. The project included minor curtain wall repairs and installation of new windows, roof, upgraded fire alarm system, extended sprinkler system, ceilings, and high-efficiency lighting for selected floors utilizing daylight harvesting practices. During the next 10 years, GSA will invest in improvements to the lobby, sidewalk pavers, security, and restrooms.

Parking and Public Transportation The Peck Federal Building has indoor parking spaces but only for agencies in the building. Visitors can use one of several surface lots or parking garages nearby. Public transportation via Metro (Ohio) or TANK (Kentucky) is easily accessible on Main Street near the building's primary entrance.
