DC Public Schools (DCPS), Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan, Washington, DC
The Capitol Hill Motessori at Logan looked to improve the school’s current operations by adding approximately 50,000 SF to an existing 50,000 SF historic building that was constructed throughout the 1930’s and 1940’s. MGAC was brought on board to provide project management services for the addition and modernization.
Work for the school includes construction of a full kitchen and cafeteria, full FF&E procurement services, and a large public art budget. MGAC’s primary responsibilities for the $72M project include project management; submittal and RFI review; facilitating owner and contractor meetings; work closely with the owner to monitor project schedule and resolve construction design conflict; and coordinating an off-site swing space.
Once complete, the school, which is pursuing LEED certification, will utilize geothermal wells and feature outdoor classrooms, including the addition of greenspace play areas.
