Senate Office Buildings Jurisdiction

Senate Office Buildings Jurisdiction

Brian Crupi works on a switch control cabinet which allows operators to move a subway car to the Hart and Dirksen Buildings from one track to the other for maintenance work.

The Architect of the Capitol's (AOC) Senate Office Buildings jurisdiction oversees the office and committee space for the United States Senate. It has oversight for the daily care, maintenance, repair and operations of more than 3 million square feet of facility space, including the Dirksen, Hart and Russell Senate office buildings, restaurants, an employees' child care center, a congressional page school and dormitory and subway systems. The jurisdiction also manages leased facilities housing off-site Senate support organizations and coordinates the office move process for senators and staff.

Lawrence Barr is currently serving as Acting Superintendent of the Senate Office Buildings.
