The move and the mission were time sensitive and a one time, non-recurring event. The existing space consisted of approximately 1,310 square feet of commercial office space located on the seventh floor of a multi-story building. The space was converted into an ANG Training Room. To meet the design and operational requirements, Conti provided a team of design-build specialists and conducted a feasibility analysis, designed the interior space, HVAC and Electronic Security Systems, and constructed the facility to meet the DCID 6/9, Physical Security Standards for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIFs) requirements. Additionally, Conti Federal installed LAN and other IT systems, ultimately obtaining occupancy and certification of the renovated space and SCIF.

SCIF design included threats and vulnerabilities assessment and the implementation of physical security measures to acceptable risk level. The Security Plan was submitted and approved by the Cognizant Security Agencies.

Conti Federal implemented Security Controls to deny foreign intelligence services and other unauthorized personnel the opportunity for undetected entry into this facility and exploitation of sensitive information.
