Puerto Rico, San Juan
The GSA San Juan Master Plan and Garage Project in San Juan, Puerto Rico was commissioned by the General Services Administration (GSA) to define physical planning strategies associated with locating a new, separate Federal Facility Complex and a new Federal Employee Parking Garage on the existing Hato Rey federal site. It was important that a ceremonial entrance for the Federal campus be reestablished and at the same time ISC Level 4 security be set in place for the FBI portion of the site. The FBI field office was provided with a separate access point and screening facility. With the placement of the garage, the design team saw the importance of a cohesive design element, one that would bind the other two into a unified architectural solution.
