Clark will transform a four-acre site into the first national presidential memorial of the 21st century, which will recognize Eisenhower’s contributions to our nation as the 34th President and the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II. Located south of the National Mall, the memorial will feature extensive landscaping and hardscaping with large monumental-scale  statuaries and inscribed stone blocks. The site also will showcase a 450-foot long transparent, woven metal tapestry supported by a cable net system and a series of 80-foot tall monumental-scale columns. Providing a dramatic backdrop to the memorial, the tapestry will feature an image of a peacetime scene of the Normandy coastline. In addition to the memorial, the team will construct a building which will house a bookstore, a National Park Service Ranger contact station, public restrooms, and support facilities for the memorial’s operation and maintenance.

C3M and Clark Concrete are a part of the project team and will perform electrical and cast-in-place concrete work, respectively.
