Completed in 1884 to honor George Washington, the Washington Monument was the tallest structure in the world until it was overtaken by the Eiffel Tower in 1889.  The Monument has been closed since it sustained damage as a result of a 5.8-magnitude earthquake on August 23, 2011.

James E. Koch, Ph.D., P.E., LEED AP, F.SAME, Senior Vice President and Director of Hill's Federal Services Group  said, "We are honored to be involved in the repair and restoration of such an iconic national monument.”
