DC Archives – UDC Building #41 Project (Ward 3)

Project Description:

The new archival facility will address the records center storage needs of the District and provide a facility that meets the standards for records centers. It will consolidate current collections in one location and anticipate ongoing needs for space and support services. The archive requires facilities with highly specialized technical building systems that provide the controlled and secure environments necessary to ensure the long-term safety of the collections. The new facility will provide better security for the collections and enhanced access for the public, while allowing for future expansion. The project includes the selective removal of University of District of Columbia (UDC) Building #41 and construction of a new purpose-built facility to accommodate the updated program for the Office of Public Records.
