Since the summer of 2013, 2RW has been a proud participant in the Monticello Mountaintop Project, a multi-year effort to restore Monticello as Jefferson knew it and to tell the stories of the people—enslaved and free—who lived and worked on the 5,000-acre plantation. Working closely with the Thomas Jefferson Foundation and a team of architects, historic preservationists, conservators, and contractors, 2RW has been providing a wide range of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering design services for this project. Jefferson saw the earth as a common and intergenerational right, suggesting that he would support the sustainable efforts being made on the site today.
2RW has been providing a range of infrastructure planning and MEP engineering services for this project, including:
