Southland Industries, one of the nation's largest design-build mechanical contracting firms, was recently awarded the HVAC and plumbing installation contract for the Dulles Discovery III Office Building Tenant Fit-Out project located in Northern Virginia. Procured through a design-bid-build competition, Holder Construction will operate as the general contractor for the project and Peterson Companies will serve as project developer.
With approximately 450,000 total square feet of interior tenant space, the Dulles Discovery III base building will be developed for a federal agency tenant and seeks LEED Silver certification. Southland's scope of work will be executed according to a 13-month schedule and will include mechanical and plumbing fit-out for the entire building. The first floor of the building will include a fitness facility, kitchen area, and training facilities. Special construction will be required within the lower level spaces as well as on the second floor, which will be dedicated to housing a 35,000 square foot data center.
