At Stelic, we understand the significance that federal construction projects play in supporting the mission-critical objectives of government agencies and are committed to delivering facilities that meet the highest standards of quality, compliance, and efficiency. Whether you’re building a new federal courthouse, renovating an existing military base, or developing a multi-agency office complex, our team has a proven track record of delivering federal construction projects across various sectors, navigating the complex landscape of government regulations and requirements.

We Understand Federal Construction Projects


Understanding of the regulations and standards governing federal construction projects, including the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the Buy American Act, and agency-specific design guidelines.


Knowledgeable in secure federal facilities that optimize space utilization, energy performance, and occupant well-being, that ensure operational functionality, sustainability, and compliance with federal mandates.


Experience navigating the permitting and approval processes associated with federal projects, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review, Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and coordination with the General Services Administration (GSA) and other federal agencies.


Insight in design practices, such as integrated project delivery (IPD), life-cycle cost analysis (LCCA), green building certification (e.g., LEED, Green Globes), Executive Order 13693 (Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade) and the Guiding Principles for Sustainable Federal Buildings.


Experience in supporting a wide range of federal facilities, including office buildings, courthouses, laboratories, military installations, and border infrastructure, each adhering to specific operational, security, and technical requirements, such as the Interagency Security Committee (ISC) Standards and the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC).


Develop phased construction plans and temporary facilities that minimize disruption to ongoing federal operations, utilizing construction sequencing strategies and collaborating closely with federal stakeholders to ensure the continuity of critical government functions throughout the construction process.


Understanding of federal construction projects that prioritizes flexibility and adaptability, incorporating modular design principles, reconfigurable spaces, and advanced building systems to accommodate future changes in programmatic requirements, security protocols, and technology upgrades.


Track record of delivering federal projects that meet the highest standards of quality, safety, and performance, with a rigorous quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) process that includes constructability reviews, commissioning, and compliance audits to ensure adherence to all relevant codes, standards, and industry best practices, such as the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) and the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) MasterFormat.


Manages the complex coordination and logistical challenges associated with federal construction, using project management tools and lean construction principles to optimize resource allocation, minimize waste, and ensure the seamless integration of specialized government systems and high-performance building components.


We work closely with our federal clients to develop solutions and that align with their mission requirements, budgetary constraints, and long-term asset management goals, employing life-cycle cost analysis (LCCA), return on investment (ROI) modeling, and risk assessment techniques to optimize the long-term performance, functionality, and resilience of each federal facility, while ensuring strict adherence to government contracting standards and procedures.
