Building 1108 was constructed in 1952 as part of a complex of buildings that were designed to serve the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratory (AFRCL) at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford, MA. This Federally funded Design-Build project consists of a comprehensive rehabilitation to the three-story building which will house the Defense Contracting Management Agency (DCMA) when complete. The facility will be designed and constructed taking into account the project requirements, existing facility conditions, and project constraints to provide the best possible operational, energy conserving and cost effective facility. Functional areas within the building include administrative office areas, classrooms, conference rooms, mail/office supply, team rooms, business centers, nursing rooms, telephone rooms, law library, break rooms, and support spaces.

The design process has expanded upon a previous space planning study; with analysis of program, cubicle layout, maximization of natural light, and increased collaboration opportunities. The project adheres to Department of Defense sustainability and incorporated Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) code compliance.
