House Office Buildings Jurisdiction

House Office Buildings Jurisdiction

The Architect of the Capitol's (AOC) House Office Buildings jurisdiction is responsible for the operation, maintenance and preservation of more than 5 million square feet of facility space, including the Cannon, Ford, Longworth, O'Neill and Rayburn House office buildings, underground garages, annexes and subways.

With oversight for daily domestic care, repairs and maintenance at these facilities, the jurisdiction also performs client services, preventive maintenance, building inspector surveys, compliance issues abatement, energy savings initiatives and safety inspections. The use of office and committee space for the members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the biennial office move process for House members fall under the duties of this jurisdiction.

Joe Campbell is currently serving as Acting Superintendent of the House Office Buildings.
