C3M is providing electrical and communications systems preconstruction and construction services on this four-acre memorial, which will recognize Eisenhower’s contributions to our nation as the 34th President and the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in World War II. Located south of the National Mall, the memorial will feature extensive landscaping and hardscaping with large monumental-grade elements including statuaries and inscribed stone blocks. The site also will showcase a 450-foot long woven metal tapestry connected by a cable net system and supported by a series of 80-foot tall monumental-scale columns. Providing a dramatic backdrop to the memorial, the tapestry will feature an image of a peacetime scene of the Normandy coastline.
C3M is responsible for the installation of power distribution systems, high-end lighting fixtures and controls, and communications systems for the memorial and visitor’s center as well as electrical and communications work as needed to perform structural rehabilitation of the existing Lyndon Baines Johnson Department of Education Building. Prior to the construction phase, C3M provided preconstruction services including design and constructability reviews, budgeting, and scheduling.
