Designing for the Future: The Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building

 

HGA's work on the Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building exemplifies our ongoing partnership with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) over the years. The architecturally distinctive, midcentury-modern office building has been carefully restored while addressing new technology, sustainable initiatives, and modern workplace needs--positioning B.H. Whipple to serve the public well into the future.

Renovation highlights include:

  • New landscaping and plantings on a 25-acre site.
  • Restored travertine walls, terrazzo floors and elevator banks along a reconfigured Main Street corridor.
  • Interpretive exhibits of regional geology and history.
  • Flexible workspaces that meet programming needs for 13 federal agencies.
  • Sustainable innovations, including a geothermal heating-and-cooling system and high-performance exterior.
