What is the coolest project you have worked on at Summer Consultants?

Working with GSA and the Heating Operations and Transmission Division (HOTD) to design the replacement of several buried piping segments along the National Mall and through surrounding buildings was probably the largest and most interesting project I’ve been a part of.
