Here are some progress pictures that Church Street United Methodist Church was able to capture using a drone!
“The grand opening of the new Federal Courthouse was recently held, marking the end of a highly anticipated project that took decades to plan. The $89 million contract went to a team led by W.G. Yates & Sons, which oversaw the construction project from its office in Biloxi, Miss. In addition, architectural firms from Washington, D.C., URS and Hartman-Cox Architects, were also part of the team.”
The Southern District of Alabama U.S. District Court moved into their new home designed by Hartman-Cox Architects with AECOM and built by Yates Construction. Effective immediately, the John A. Campbell Federal Courthouse at 113 Saint Joseph Street is closed to the public as it undergoes renovation (also by Hartman-Cox Architects with AECOM to be built by Yates Construction) which is scheduled to be completed in 2020. When it reopens, the Campbell building will be home to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and U.S. Probation among other federal agencies and offices.
Groundbreaking for Tudor Place’s new project, The South Lawn Cistern Project, took place last week in DC. Tudor Place recognizes the importance of environmental sustainability and is implementing the installation of two large cisterns (rainwater containment units) under the South Lawn. These cisterns will move rainwater away from the Main House and store it to be used for watering plants and irrigation. In turn, Tudor Place will cut back on their use of fresh water as well as lessen runoff in the Rock Creek Watershed. This is one of the first steps in the execution of the Master Preservation Plan that was developed by Hartman-Cox Architects.
On Sunday, July 15th Church Street United Methodist Church celebrated the progress of the Building for Christ project with the Cornerstone Laying during both worship services and tours of construction following each service!
Hartman-Cox Architects has named two new Associates at the firm; Julia Cobb and Greta Weidner! Their hard work and dedication to the company has been greatly appreciated throughout the years. Congratulations!
