Wiles Mensch Corporation – DC (WM) is provided surveying, civil engineering, and dry utilities services for the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) modernization of the 76,500 SF Eaton Elementary School. The historic building requires various systems upgrades and design solutions to maximize available space while protecting the facility’s historic elements. Renovations seek to maximize space for a growing student population, improve ADA accessibility, and preserve green spaces.

WM is responsible for providing full civil design services including concept design, schematic design, design development, and construction documents. Civil scope includes EISF coordination, schematic design submissions to DC Water, DOEE, and DDOT, and stormwater management design.
