The project is to demolish the existing Original Building and construct a new box culvert for stormwater. The project will prepare the site for the construction of a future building, The Institute for Digital Innovation, which will host Mason’s new school of computing and will support the education of tech talent in the service of the Commonwealth’s commitment to provide for workforce development for high technology employers such as Amazon. The box culvert that is to be constructed will not be campus infrastructure but will be a component of a stormwater infrastructure system which serves a large segment of Arlington County. The box culvert construction will fulfill an agreement with Arlington County to replace an aging segment of stormwater infrastructure which currently passes under the Original Building. The box culvert will 9′ x 7′ and will be buried approximately 20′ below existing finished grade.
