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, Maryland.

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 pictures and more information on the project.
