GSA Creates Flexible
An important issue in the design of the E. Barrett Prettyman Courthouse, and GSA-owned structures in general, has been the utilization of an access floor system. GSA used an underfloor service flexibility to create a courthouse that would serve the needs of its occupants for the life of the building.
"GSA is not only committed to access flooring in new courthouses, but also 'raised access flooring is highly recommended for large modernization projects.'"
