Benjamin P. Grogan and Jerry L. Dove Federal Building Miramar, Florida

Located about 20 miles northwest of downtown Miami, the Benjamin P. Grogan and Jerry L. Dove Federal Building in Miramar, Fl., provides an integrated hub for FBI activities in South Florida. The complex comprises three structures that form east–west bars with courtyards in between. The 20-acre site lies less than 6 miles east of the Everglades, on “improved” land that was part of the immense natural wetland less than a century ago. Developed through the U.S. General Services Administration’s Design Excellence program, the 383,000-square-foot complex consolidates nearly 1,000 FBI employees who had previously worked in several locations throughout the Miami area. The building stands as a stunningly ethereal testament to the state of the art in contemporary office buildings. Two office buildings, one six stories and the other seven stories, are connected by a bridge and supplemented to the north by a lower-scaled annex and parking garage that supports an extensive photovoltaic array, providing 20 percent of the complex’s energy needs. The concrete-framed buildings are designed to LEED Platinum core-and-shell standards through material use and smart siting.
