Gloria B. Nelson Public Service Building

ROLE: Architect of Record, Interior Design 
CLIENT: Guam Power Authority

Guam Power Authority (GPA) experienced major operational inefficiencies as a result of scattered offices throughout Guam for the company’s GPA and Guam Waterworks Authority (GWA) employees. Prior to planning and designing a new campus facility, RIM conducted more than 60 interviews with GPA/GWA management and staff, visiting their existing facilities to determine what the employees needed. The result was a new 116,000 SF, 3-story facility for management, accounting, human resources, procurement, engineering, customer service, and IT employees. Desired components included offices, conference space, training centers, a client customer service center, and a central control system to monitor power island-wide. With its energy-efficient features, this building has become the standard for sustainability in Guam and is certified as LEED Silver.
