Contractor Selected for the Pentagon Memorial

The Pentagon Renovation Program has selected Centex Lee LLC, of Fairfax, Va., as the design-builder for the Pentagon Memorial.  The Pentagon Memorial Project is a joint effort between various organizations united to construct a memorial commemorating the 184 lives lost in the Pentagon and on American Airlines Flight 77 on Sept. 11, 2001.


Following an intense, best value source selection competition, the Pentagon Renovation Program selected Centex Lee LLC based on the company’s superior technical and management approach, past performance and proposed project cost.  The Centex Lee LLC design-build team includes the construction firm Centex and the design firm Lee and Associates.  Additional team partners are Delon Hampton and Associates, Syska Hennesey, CMS, Light’n Up, LID Center Inc., MC Dean Inc. and Southland Industries.


Centex Lee LLC will further develop the technical aspects of the winning concept design by Julie Beckman and Keith Kaseman and construct the Pentagon Memorial.  The Pentagon Memorial construction will be funded entirely by private donations.  The design and construction will be completed in phases to facilitate the Family Steering Committee’s ability to raise funds incrementally, while continuing progress on the project.  An extensive study of existing underground utilities on the Memorial site will begin immediately.  Construction will be completed approximately 20 months after available funding is received to begin the first phase of construction.  The initial contract value is $50,000 for the utilities study, with phased options for a total contract value of $11,590,100.
