A.V. Bryan Courthouse slated for $11 million in repairs using low-embodied carbon materials through Inflation Reduction Act
GSA plans to allocate over $11 million to repair the courthouse parking garage.
PHILADELPHIA -- The U.S. General Services Administration plans to allocate $11.5 million to repair the parking garage at the Albert V. Bryan U.S. Courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia.
Funded through the Inflation Reduction Act, the project is one of more than 150 low-embodied carbon projects that GSA announced yesterday.
The Albert V. Bryan U.S. Courthouse project will address critical repairs and upgrades to the courthouse’s deteriorating parking garage. The funding will allow for repairs to the garage incorporating low-embodied carbon concrete.
“The judiciary depends on safe and easy access to the Albert V. Bryan Courthouse,” stated Joanna Rosato, acting Mid-Atlantic Region Regional Administrator. “These repairs will provide a safe and sustainable investment in the future of the Courthouse.”
The Inflation Reduction Act includes $3.4 billion for GSA to influence market research and development of low-embodied carbon materials, and to build more sustainable and cost-efficient high-performance facilities. GSA’s Inflation Reduction Act projects will implement new technologies and accelerate GSA’s efforts in achieving a net-zero emissions federal building portfolio by 2045. Through these investments, GSA estimates that it could reduce carbon emissions by 2.3 million metric tons in greenhouse gas emissions. That is the equivalent of taking about 500,000 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles off the road for one year.
