M. C. Dean is celebrating the completion of its Washington, D.C. School Without Walls Project. The 98,000 square foot historically-conscious renovation took the Dulles, Virginia construction company 14 months to complete. M. C. Dean renovated the school, including Grant Elementary School built in 1881, with a new design and installation of architectural lighting, security, fire alarm, voice, data and new information systems.
M. C. Dean also constructed a new 68,000 square foot steel and glass addition to the D.C. public school to comply with a pending LEED (Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design) Schools for Silver certification from the U.S. Green Buildings Council.
The Principal of the School Without Walls Richard Trogisch was very pleased with M.C. Dean’s final product. “I have never worked with such a professional firm as M.C. Dean,” said Trogisch, adding, “They were incredibly flexible in the face of all the demands and always maintained a high level of professionalism.”
