In 2005 Duane moved on to the U.S. General Services Administration as a Senior Project manager. While with the GSA, he was fortunate enough to manage several large prospectus projects, that included the modernization of a Federal Courthouse in Seattle, Construction of a new Headquarters for the US Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, and Construction of a New Federal Courthouse in Downtown Los Angeles, CA. These projects set new standards within GSA for sustainability and Design Excellence using the Design Build Delivery Method.
