Arlington National Cemetery

Project Overview

Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place for many of our nation’s greatest heroes, including more than 300,000 veterans of every American conflict, from the Revolutionary War to Iraq and Afghanistan. The 27-acre property expansion will provide more than 27,000 gravesites and niches, extending the cemetery’s burial opportunities for first interments into the 2030s.

Baker DC’s scope includes close to 16,000 cy of cast-in-place concrete, encompassing site retaining walls and architectural concrete (with a Class A colored finish) for four new columbarium courts and three niche walls.

From flyovers and cannon salutes to large processions, the crew is constantly reminded of those fighting for our freedom. Baker is humbled to be a part of the expansion of the Arlington National Cemetery, where many our service men and women are remembered and honored.
