Administrative Headquarters

“Ever since we started working together back in 2002, we’ve been so very impressed and so very grateful for Zubatkin’s incredible support, which has come to us in so many ways – your counsel, your expertise, your professionalism and your friendship. We feel both proud and blessed to count you among the small group of essential partners who have contributed the most to make our organization so successful. We look forward to working with you in the future.”

Dr. Rand Jerris, PhD
Senior Managing Director - Public Services, USGA

The United States Golf Association (USGA) is the leading organization dedicated to the game of golf, serving as the governing body for the sport in both the United States and Mexico. Based in Liberty Corner, New Jersey, the USGA owns and operates a historic, 230-acre campus that includes its global administrative headquarters, a public museum, a research and test center, and an outdoor putting green.

The USGA embarked on a master planning process to reimagine its global headquarters, foster a more inclusive image of the organization, and better position its facilities for the future. The multi-phased project involved the renovation and addition of over 125,000 sf of offices in open, activity-based layouts reflective of today’s collaborative and digital work environment. The program also included a golf simulator, a state-of-the-art exercise facility, conference space, data center, and other supporting infrastructure. To reflect the USGA’s commitment to environmental stewardship, significant landscape enhancements were implemented to improve campus accessibility and incorporate sustainable resource conservation strategies. The project is respective of the unique historic character of the campus, and the work was phased to allow the institution to maintain ongoing operations during construction.

Role + Responsibilities

The USGA has maintained a longstanding relationship with Zubatkin, dating back to the renovation and expansion of the Museum in 2008. The firm was once again engaged to oversee the development of the master plan, as well as the design, construction, and turnover of the renovation and addition of the Administrative Building. Working closely with the USGA, Zubatkin advised on the project implementation strategy, managed the project team selection, and provided the financial controls, administration and reporting. The firm’s In-House Technical Group was instrumental in reviewing drawings and managing project risks.
