Bethesda, Maryland, February 9, 2000
- JD Long Masonry is awarded the contract for the masonry
work on the new Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center
located on the National Institutes of Health Campus in Bethesda,
The facility is designed for both physicians
and patients to participate in cutting edge research and
scientific advances. The new facility, comprised of nearly
1,000,000 square feet of space, will be added to the existing
Building No.10, which opened in 1953. The masonry scope
for this project includes nearly 2,000,000 face brick and
500,000 concrete masonry units. The design for the brick
skin includes four different types brick bonds, some of
which are custom designed specifically for this project.
All of these brick bonds will be constructed using a customized
blend of four different brick colors. The building perimeter
is nearly one mile in length and the highest point will
reach over 200 feet.
JD Long Masonry employs a full time, on site
staff consisting of Project Managers, an Engineer, Safety
Officer, Office Administrator, Field Supervisor and Four
Field Foremen. "The size, design complexity, tight
site conditions and limited access will most certainly offer
a good solid challenge for our site team as well as our
organization", said Bill Stynes, Vice President.
The masonry work is currently scheduled to
be complete in early 2003 with the overall project complete
by mid 2003. Check out the link to the National Institutes
of Health Clinical Research Centers project website for
