MCN Build was selected as the General Contractor for Jennie Dean Park’s long-anticipated transformation. This 12.56-acre park offers two illuminated diamond fields, a lighted tennis court, a basketball court, a playground for pre-school and school-aged children, two picnic shelters, an all-gender restroom building, green casual use space, and a stream overlook. The scope of work included landscaping, site circulation, furnishings, signage, stormwater management, parking, public art, and historic interpretation elements. The new, re-designed playground is now closer to S. Four Mile Run Drive and more visible and accessible to the surrounding community. It’s ADA-accessible with age-separated areas and state-of-the-art safety features, including poured-in-place rubber surfaces.
Arlington Education Center
MCN renovated the Arlington Public Schools Education Center and converted the building from business use to educational use. This 55,000SF building was converted into a state-of-the-art high school annex that expands to the capacity of the current Washington-Liberty high school on the same campus. The scope of work includes removing all existing and integrating new partitions and finishes, complete HVAC replacement, new roof and insulation, new windows, elevator replacement, entrance canopy, and new site improvements to support educational functions.
Lubber Run Community Center
The Lubber Run Community Center is a brand-new 60,000 SF facility with a 50,000 SF underground parking structure, outdoor courts, and play spaces. As a part of the FY 2017 – 2026 Capital Improvement Plan, the new community center invigorates the surrounding neighborhoods with programs for community members of all ages, including a pre-school and senior center. The brand new community center is Net Zero Ready and seeking LEED Gold Certification.
Ferdinand T. Day School

Day School provides a cutting-edge learning and recreational environment and houses up to 650 elementary school students. This project is LEED Certified.
Northern Virginia Bahá’í Regional Center
MCN Build constructed the 20,000 SF Bahá’í Community Center that features a state-of-the-art auditorium, library, information center, kitchen facility, and multipurpose rooms. More than 20 years in the making, the commencement of the Baha’i Center’s construction was a historical event for both the Baha’i and the Northern Virginia community.
Vienna Shopping Center
MCN Build converted a former gas station into a vibrant marketplace that’s adjacent to one of the Washington, DC area’s most heavily traveled thoroughfares. Once drab and uninviting, this new Vienna Shopping Center is now a crisp, modern magnet for community commerce.
