WASHINGTON — The District of Columbia Building Industry Association honored GSA Commissioner of Public Buildings Robert A. Peck for his remarkable contributions to the economic growth and quality of life and development in the District of Columbia, particularly in the federal realm.

Peck was one of three recipients honored by the DCBIA Thursday with its top development, real estate, and construction professionals’ achievement awards, recognizing both public and private real estate leaders in the district.

“This award is a testament to Bob's commitment to smart growth and livable communities in the District of Columbia," said GSA Administrator Martha N. Johnson. “As PBS Commissioner, he's leading the federal effort toward responsible real estate development, creating livable federal communities, and playing a major role in the agency's move to a zero environmental footprint by advancing green building innovation."

As the head of one of the largest public real estate organizations in the world, Peck oversees GSA’s portfolio of 362 million square feet of space in 9,624 assets across all 50 states, six U.S. territories, and the district. Ensuring that GSA continues to maintain a portfolio of high-performing, sustainable buildings satisfying a diverse range of federal customers is a key priority.

“Responsible development requires smart growth and livable communities,” said Peck. “At GSA, we have the opportunity to have a positive effect on communities across the country by being a proving ground for new energy technologies and green solutions, and by being good neighbors and sustainable partners.”

DCBIA is the professional association representing both the commercial and residential real estate industries in the nation’s capital. Association members are engaged in all aspects of real estate development and include developers, general contractors, architects and engineers, lenders, attorneys, brokers, title companies, utility companies, community development organizations, and other industry members.

Founded in 1949, GSA manages more than one-fourth of the government’s total procurement dollars and influences the management of $500 billion in federal assets, including 9,500 government-owned or leased buildings and 213,000 vehicles.
