The Ben Murch Elementary School Addition and Modernization project consisted of the rehabilitation of the two story Ben Murch Elementary School as well as a the construction of an addition adjacent and attached to the original school.

The project houses approximately 720 students (a 350student increase from the original school), a new cafeteria, gymnasium, and media center. The critical goal of the project was to incorporate the rehabilitated DC landmark-eligible Murch School with the new addition and recreation areas into one exceptional community resource. This project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
