Washington, DC, November 16, 2001 - J.D. Long Masonry has been awarded the contract for the masonry work on the Georgetown Incinerator project located in Washington DC's historic Georgetown neighborhood. The 533,000 square foot facility project offers a mixture of residential and commercial uses which will include The Ritz Carlton Hotel, Loews Theaters, retail shops and an underground 600 space parking structure.

In addition to the masonry work on the new multi-building complex, J.D. Long Masonry has been selected to restore historical structures that were once a working incinerator and smokestack. The historic residence of Georgetown's first mayor will also be restored and incorporated with the project as a presidential suite. The masonry scope for this project includes an accelerated schedule to construct the three new buildings simultaneously through the winter months. The new construction includes over 560,000 face brick and 150,000 concrete masonry units.

The design for the brick skin of the new structures incorporates three different brick colors and multiple special shaped brick to achieve the Architects intended design criteria. The project site perimeter is flanked on all four sides by busy streets, one of which is located under an elevated freeway. When complete the two residential buildings will tower above the freeway and overlook the waterfront parks located on the other side.

In order to achieve our partners' goals JD Long Masonry has agreed to procure special equipment, custom selected for this project's many site constraints and obstacles. Our management team has been hand selected in preparation for this project's challenges. Masonry work on this project is currently underway and scheduled to be completed mid 2002.
