Mickey Leland Federal Building Houston, Texas

Case Study
FSG Supplies Electrical Construction Support for Award-Winning GSA High-Rise Renovation


Situated in downtown Houston, the G.T. “Mickey” Leland Federal Building faced the inevitable signs of aging after more than 25 years of service. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive overhaul, the General Services Administration (GSA) spearheaded a meticulous design-build selection process, ultimately entrusting Gensler and Gilbane to lead the extensive renovation project.


The 22-story office tower underwent a transformative modernization initiative, encompassing a full facade replacement, HVAC upgrades, ADA enhancements, and a complete overhaul of lighting systems and common areas. With the building housing numerous federal agencies and congressional offices, maintaining full functionality throughout the renovation was paramount.


FSG's Houston branch played a pivotal role, providing expert electrical construction services while ensuring minimal disruption to building occupants. From electrical design assistance to seamless BIM coordination, FSG managed the replacement of lighting, controls, power systems, and fire alarm infrastructure. The result was a revitalized Mickey Leland Federal Building, boasting enhanced aesthetics and improved visitor experiences, aligning perfectly with the GSA's vision for a modernized and welcoming facility. Additionally, the project's success earned accolades, including LEED Platinum certification and recognition as the Innovative Energy Project of the Year by the Association of Energy Engineers, underscoring the collaborative triumph achieved by FSG, Gilbane, and Gensler in revitalizing this iconic federal landmark.
