National Presbyterian Church

MCN Build was chosen as the Construction Manager for the renovation and expansion of the National Presbyterian Church (NPC). The approximate 12.5-acre campus houses NPC and the National Presbyterian School (NPS) and includes several other buildings. The main church building had not been significantly upgraded or renovated since its initial construction nearly 50 years ago. In 2015, NPC’s Session (leadership) appointed a Facility Master Planning Team (FMPT) to lead the church in a master planning effort. The proactive historic designation approach intends to preserve multiple future options for construction and campus use. 

 

The historic National Presbyterian Church was a complex project on an active site, occupied by the NPS and NBC 4, with heavy traffic along Nebraska Avenue. This project involved adding three new conference rooms, reprogramming and renovating other interior spaces, and upgrades to the fire alarm and mechanical systems. Alongside Beyer Blinder Belle Architects, we created sanctuary terrace areas, a new garden, and a stormwater bio-retention system, all while salvaging limestone from the existing facade to clad the new addition. Much of the work focused on minimizing NPC’s environmental footprint.  

Jennie Dean Park

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.

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.

KIPP DC Legacy College Prep & Ferebee Hope Recreation Center

MCN Build constructed the co-located KIPP DC Legacy College Prep and Ferebee Hope Recreation Center. This brand new state-of-the-art high school prepares 800 students for success in college, careers, and life. The project also created a new, cutting-edge community and recreation center, which houses an indoor pool, multipurpose space, and gymnasium. This project is seeking LEED Gold Certification.

The Fields at RFK Campus

MCN Build redeveloped the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium Lot 7. The RFK Multipurpose fields are the first step in converting the impervious asphalt parking lots into usable green space to accommodate the continually growing demand for athletic and recreational facilities in the District. The complex also includes a celebration pavilion for organized community activities and events.

Shepherd Park Community Center and Elementary School Cafeteria

MCN Build constructed a new recreation center addition that connects to the existing Shepherd Elementary School. The elementary school will use the new area during school hours as their gymnasium and dining cafeteria. The project also included renovating the school’s existing warming kitchen and cafeteria to a full cooking kitchen and serving area. This project is LEED Gold Certified.

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library Digital Commons

MCN Build modernized the 45,000 SF digital library and great hall in the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, a building listed on the National Historic Registry. These spaces now feature cutting-edge computer stations and community meeting areas to encourage creativity and artistic endeavors. The library houses more than 70 computers loaded with the latest design software.

Fire Engine and Medical Services (FEMS) No. 16

MCN Build restored the Fire Engine and Medical Services (FEMS) No. 16 response facility to its original grandeur. The renovated building features new finishes, system upgrades, new windows, site improvements, and a restored facade. Originally built in 1932, the engine house services the emergency needs of the surrounding community, including the White House. This project is seeking LEED Silver certification.

Benning Stoddert Recreation Center

The modernization of the Benning Stoddert Recreation Center created a stunning facility with updated multipurpose space, enlarged locker rooms, administrative offices, a computer room, a fitness center, a kitchen, and an outdoor splash park. The newly renovated center provides more activity space for the Fort Chaplin community. This project achieved LEED Gold Certification.

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.
