Administrator Robin Carnahan provides remarks to the audience during the November 6 IRA announcement at the Frank Carlson Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Topeka, Kan.
Administrator Robin Carnahan announced the investments alongside White House Senior Advisor John Podesta and GSA Regional Administrator Denise Maes during her November 6 visit to Topeka, Kan. as part of the Investing in Rural America Event Series.
GSA plans to invest about $25 million for low embodied carbon construction materials to help the Frank Carlson Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse reduce greenhouse gas emissions while improving efficiency, safety, and comfort. GSA will replace the windows and doors with blast-resistant aluminum frames and insulated LEC glass that will reduce the building’s energy use and extend the building’s useful life. The concrete pavement sidewalks and parking area will be upgraded with LEC concrete to sustainably address deterioration, correct tripping hazards, and improve accessibility.
The Robert J. Dole U.S. Courthouse in Kansas City, Kan. will receive $17 million for LEC glass to replace nearly 14,000 square feet of windows and doors with blast-resistant carbon glazing units to improve energy efficiency.
