Ten years later…a rebuilt Pentagon

A decade ago, the graphic 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center shocked the world. What sometimes gets hidden in the story was the crashing of American Airlines Flight 77 into the Pentagon in Arlington, VA. As a response to heal and show the country’s resiliency, America decided to rebuild the Pentagon quickly.

Hensel Phelps was awarded the contract based on the company’s superior technical management approach, past performance, and price. The $1 billion renovation of the Pentagon was completed years ahead of schedule. During the final phases of construction, Hensel Phelps received the highest national SBA award for its small and disadvantaged programs due to the involvement in teaching and mentoring small businesses during construction.

In continuing its legacy within the U.S. and since rebuilding the Pentagon, Hensel Phelps has been an integral part of many first sustainable projects built in the United States, including some important firsts under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™.

The level of personal commitment to sustainable design and construction demonstrated by its employees, along with the willingness of its clients, including the government, to support these efforts has helped Hensel Phelps provide leadership to these green building practices. With more than 350 experienced LEED Accredited Professionals (APs) strategically located throughout the country, Hensel Phelps is working collaboratively with its clients to maximize the long-term PERFORMANCE of their buildings. This is one of the main reasons why the Pentagon is expected to last many, many years.
