Formed as a new agency tasked with managing the entire Military Health System, the Defense Health Agency (DHA) faced the daunting challenge of reorganizing and placing thousands of employees. With a real estate footprint of over one million square feet in the National Capital Region alone and dozens of leases nationwide, the DHA needed support to update the existing program of requirements (POR) and implement a space planning strategy for its real estate portfolio.


Alfonso & Associates Consulting mobilized a team of highly experienced professional consultants – architects, interior designers, planners, and project managers – to construct the necessary solutions. The team has gathered data, conducted interviews, updated the agency’s POR and delivered plans for more efficient use of space in support of the client’s requirements.


In the first phase of the engagement, Alfonso & Associates Consulting developed a POR for over 4,000 agency employees working in a multitude of organizations and across 1 million square feet of real estate throughout the National Capital Region. Maintaining functional workspaces through thoughtful space planning and implementing innovative work strategies, the team was able to allocate agency organizations to the appropriate locations within the client’s existing real estate portfolio. As a result of Alfonso & Associates’ excellent service, a follow-on contract was awarded to continue space planning and expand the enterprise solution to include DHA’s nationwide real estate portfolio.
