Updated: Sep 26, 2018



DBA is honored to announce that we received the 2017 AIA Maryland Design in Excellence Award for the Repair and Restoration of the Compton Bassett Chapel, in Upper Marlboro, MD. The project was completed for The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission and is the oldest Catholic Chapel in the State of Maryland. The jury described the project as “an exquisite repair and renovation project.” It was recognized for the technical challenges of working with idiosyncratic brick details and bond timbers as well as a learning tool for a university historic preservation program.
