Following a nine-month competitive process, the Architect of the Capitol (AOC) announced its selection of Clark/Christman, a joint venture team of Clark Construction Group and The Christman Company (AGC members in multiple locations) to provide construction management services for the renewal of the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, DC. Designed in the Beaux Arts architectural style by renowned architects Carrere and Hastings, and completed in 1908, the imposing, 800,000 sq-ft building is experiencing physical deterioration of its systems and requires extensive modernization to maintain its operability in the 21st century.

Part of the Capitol Hill campus, the Cannon Building includes offices for members of the U.S. House of Representatives and a number of Congressional committees. The building is five stories plus a full basement, with a multi-level, 300-car parking garage in its inner courtyard.

The multi-phased project involves planning and design phase pre-construction services as well as contract options for subsequent project segments, which will include preparing nearby "swing space" and taking one-fourth of the building and its occupants "off-line" while that specific wing is renewed and updated. Planning is already underway with "Phase Zero" mobilization and abatement for nearby swing space to begin in late 2014. Phase One construction on the Cannon Building is scheduled to commence in 2016/2017, with completion of all five project phases expected in 2025.
