So its illegal to carry in a federal building. And there are actual federal buildings listed in the state (16 of them), post offices etc etc.

But what about buildings such as business parks where there is a federal office within a building also used by other companies? Such as a Social Security office located in a office building? Is the entire building off limits to ccp, or just the actual floor / office of the Social Security? What about the Parking lot?

The question came up in a discussion with a friend, and to be honest I dont have any idea. I would think if the rest of the building is NOT federal you would be ok being in it with a firearm, just not in the area / floor of the actual federal office (like the SS example above).

Thoughts?

I think your train of thought is correct Dallan. Just avoid going into the Federal office, but theoretically you could go into the adjoining office operated by a private firm.

I'm just pulling that answer outta my bum, but it seems logical to me.

I am pretty sure the metal detector was located at the office entrants not the building entrants at the IRS downtown.

My experience with Social Security in the Ogden federal building was that you can't even get into the building without going through a security check point. The same at Hill Air Force base. With all the security I've seen at these I can't imagine the federal government having any office in an unsecured enviornment. I don't really know if the post office is considered a federal facility though.
I didn't even think about the small (1-3/4" blade) pocket knife in my pocket when I emptied my pockets at the security check point.:( but at least the well armed guards with their pistols and tazers and amored vests were kind enough not to throw an old man on the ground as a threat and allowed me to take it back out to my car.:)
Anyway I'm pretty sure they will have plenty of signage up before go through security.

Rectal Extractions are my preferred method for generating statistics...

You can't take your legally CC'd pistol into a U.S. Post Office.
