Department of Veterans Affairs / National Cemetery Administration

The Project

ANDERSON was tasked with developing a Master Plan to present a comprehensive, long-range development plan for Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.  This design effort expanded the existing national cemetery to the northern 200 acres. ANDERSON provided a wholistic planning approach which included:

  • Sustainable Stormwater Management
  • Topographic Land Survey
  • NEPA Study
  • Pedestrian and Vehicular Circulation
  • Wayfinding
  • Architectural Theming
  • Landscape Architecture Planning

What We Delivered

Through multiple concepts Anderson, with input from local cemetery staff and Department of Veteran’s Affairs personnel, developed a final master plan which includes six phases, extending the cemetery operations another 60 years.
