Project Description

Dumbarton Oaks, located in the historic Georgetown neighborhood of Washington D.C., is a Federal-style house and property that was purchased in 1920 by Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss, collectors and patrons of art and scholarship in the humanities. The Blisses renovated and expanded the original structure–adding the Music Room in 1929 and the Byzantine Collection in 1940–and began planning to convey the institution to Harvard, Robert’s alma mater, in 1932. Beginning in the winter of 2015, UBER performed a digital survey of existing site conditions and ultimately provided brick repair and repointing services to the property’s perimeter wall.
