NORTHERN REGION INTERAGENCY CO-LOCATION STUDY

State of Washington  |  USDA Forest Service
Completed:  2004

This study reviewed the facilities of thirteen federal and state natural resource management agencies to identify their space requirements and to investigate the functional and cost benefits of locating all in a combined campus.  We led a comprehensive workshop process to identify the needed facilities for all agencies and the ways in which consolidation could result in both facility and operational efficiency.  We recommended co-location in new energy efficient buildings on one of two evaluated sites.

The agencies in the study included USDA Forest Service District Headquarters, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Farm Agencies (NRCS, FSA, RD, CCCD, and BR), Bureau of Land Management, Forestry Sciences Lab, and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's district and field offices.
