National Park Service, Thomas Jefferson Memorial

The Thomas Jefferson Memorial is one of the three iconic monument/memorials at the National Mall. It was originally completed in 1943 and receives over 2.5 million visitors annually. 

This project includes roof replacement, elevator replacement, accessibility improvements and reconfigurations of various spaces such as parking/bus drop off location, walking path along tidal basin, restrooms, bookstore, gift shop, exhibit spaces on the lower level, and ramp to the chamber level. 

This included formal consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO), as well as formal coordination with stakeholders including the Commission of Fine Arts (CFA), National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), and United States Park Police. 

Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design in support of upgrading and preserving the historic memorial.
