Texas Facilities Commission’s (TFC) Capitol Complex Master Plan re-imagines the district as a destination celebrating the Capitol and centralizes more than 90 state agencies. Phase I of this master plan includes two new office buildings and five levels of underground parking, which will be the base of a new, pedestrian-oriented promenade. The master plan was divided into six packages and JE Dunn completed Packages 1, 2, and 3. Package 1 included a 60 ft excavation spanning 12 city blocks to support the two new office buildings and underground parking structure, totaling 507,000 CY of native soil removal. This one of the biggest excavations in the state of Texas. And the team worked so efficiently that they turned every sub-phase of the excavation over early allowing the next contractor to come in and begin their work ahead of schedule. Package 2 relocated all utilities that crossed into those excavated areas and installed new utilities to service existing/future buildings. This was the largest utility improvement project to date in downtown Austin. Package 3 was the construction of a new 19,000 SF central utility plant (CUP) and expansion of the existing Stephen F Austin (SFA) central plant to support current and future growth of the Capitol Complex. The new CUP was mechanically tied to the expanded SFA central plant via an existing underground utility tunnel for a combined capacity of 6000 tons.
