The General Services Administration (GSA) awarded Corgan, and its design partner, SOM the design of the new Social Security Administration (SSA) National Support Center (NSC) as part of the Hensel Phelps Design-Build team. Located in northeast Maryland, the new 280,000-square-foot office and data center replaces the existing outdated National Computer Center and houses critical computer operations essential to providing prompt and accurate benefit payments to millions of Americans. Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the state-of-the-art office and data center facility sets the benchmark for optimal energy performance in federal data centers.
