Building 427 at Fort Leavenworth spans 22,500 SF and was built in the 1920s as housing for military families. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building was chosen to be renovated for adaptive re-use as office space. The scope of work included whole building renovations and modifications. This required incorporating strict preservation guidelines for historical buildings as well as Department of Defense antiterrorism/force protection and progressive collapse design requirements.

The LEED Gold project preserved many of the building’s historic architectural features, including original wood trim and hardwood floors, original terrazzo flooring, and exterior window assemblies.
