The Clark Construction Group Inc. recently began construction of the $128-million Southwest Quadrangle Project at Georgetown University. Totaling more than 860,000 sq. ft. (77,400 sq m), the project consists of four components: three new residence halls, dining facility, underground parking garage and Jesuit Community Residence.
Clark Construction has developed a schedule to minimize interference with the activities of the university’s students, faculty, staff and visitors.
Forming a horseshoe-shape, the traditional steeply-pitched structures with A-framed rooflines includes pedestrian walkways and an open space landscape design. Detailed brickwork with cast stone is featured, as well as ornate woodwork designs.
In addition to the Clark team, Einhorn Yaffee Prescott Architecture and Engineering of Washington, D.C. is the architect of record and is providing MEP design and project administration. Robert A.M. Stern Architects of New York is the design architect; Stephenson and Good of Washington, D.C. is the landscape architect; Cagley and Associates of Rockville, MD, is providing the structural engineering design; civil engineering is provided by the Alpha Corporation of Dulles, VA; and geotechnical engineering is provided by Schabel Engineering Associates of Bethesda, MD.
The Southwest Quadrangle Project is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2003.
