A tribute to the 34th President of the United States, the memorial was commissioned by Congress in 1999 to honor the legacy of the World War II Supreme Allied Commander. Located in a four-acre public park adjacent to the National Mall, it's sited across the street from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
 

The Eisenhower Memorial features impressive bronze sculptures of Eisenhower, stone bas relief images, seat walls, planters, benches, inscription panels and thousands of square-feet of paving. Completed full-service stone engineering and detailing coordination and installation support. This project required flexibility and creativity solving challenges related to the selected stone and maintaining the design intent.
