Feds plan up to $40 million in renovations to Nebraska building, courthouse

February 20, 2024

The U.S. General Services Administration is planning $35 million to $40 million in renovations to a 50-year-old federal building and courthouse in downtown Lincoln, Nebraska.

Plans call for replacing the Lincoln’s Robert V. Denney Federal Building and Courthouse’s existing windows, curtain walls and doors with blast-resistant, thermally broken aluminum frames and blast-resistant, insulated, low embodied carbon glazing units.

Solicitations for the design phase will begin in the summer 2024, with construction expected to begin in spring 2025. The project calls for low-embodied carbon materials produced with low or zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Funding comes from the GSA’s $2 billion investment in 150 federal construction projects using LEC projects announced in November 2023. The funding, which was allocated in 2022’s Inflation Reduction Act, will support projects across 39 states; Washington, D.C.; and Puerto Rico.

Following its November 2023 announcement, GSA launched a pilot program focused on four carbon-intensive construction materials — asphalt, concrete, glass, and steel — which contribute significant greenhouse gas emissions in their supply chains, from raw materials to transportation to manufacturing.
