Construction will soon begin in Clawson on a new building to house a new office for the U.S. Social Security Administration. The new structure located at 14 Mile and Crooks roads will replace the current Royal Oak location.

Privately owned by Flint-based West Second Street Associates (WSSA), the building will be one of more than 20 structures that WSSA has built and leased to various federal government agencies. While detailed planning has already started, construction will not begin for another couple of months and completion of the project is expected within seven months.

The 11,000-square-foot building will be mostly brick with ornamental fixtures and the interior design has nearly reached completion. John Pavone, business development director for WSSA, said that the structure will be a Leadership in Environmental Engineering and Design (LEED) facility, meaning that state-of-the-art environmentally-friendly features will be featured throughout the building.


Moreno said the new facility would offer a more private interviewing area for the public, among other upgrades.

“It will provide larger space to accommodate a more secured reception area, and is able to accommodate more modern technology,” she said. “This is a good thing.”
