Upgrade Planned for Albert V. Bryan United States Courthouse Parking Garage
The parking garage at the Albert V. Bryan United States Courthouse is set to undergo a significant upgrade, with an investment of $11.5 million.
Investment in Sustainability
The U.S. General Services Administration recently announced that the courthouse parking garage, located at 401 Courthouse Square in Alexandria’s Carlyle neighborhood, is one of 150 projects across the country that will benefit from the use of “low-embodied carbon materials.” This initiative is made possible through the inflation reduction act of 2022. As part of these repairs, the parking garage will be constructed using low-embodied carbon concrete.
Acting Mid-Atlantic Region Regional Administrator Joanna Rosato emphasized the importance of safe and convenient access to the Albert V. Bryan Courthouse. She stated, “These repairs will provide a safe and sustainable investment in the future of the Courthouse.”
Inflation Reduction Act and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The Inflation Reduction Act allocates $3.4 billion to the U.S. General Services Administration for market research and development of low-embodied carbon materials. It also aims to create more sustainable and cost-efficient high-performance facilities. Through these projects, the GSA will implement new technologies and expedite efforts to achieve a net-zero emissions federal building portfolio by 2045.
These investments are projected to reduce carbon emissions by 2.3 million metric tons, which is equivalent to removing approximately 500,000 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles from the road for one year.
No specific timeline has been provided by the GSA for the completion of these projects.
