Grunley through its affiliate Grunley-Walsh as part of a joint venture team completed construction of a new National World War II Memorial located in the prime area of the National Capital known as Area I which includes the National Mall. The Memorials architecture is unique with various artistic elements symbolizing various aspects of the war. The elements include a wall of 4000 gold stars representing the more than 400000 Americans who died in battle during World War II. There are 24 Bas-Relief panels that depict scenes from World War II. The 56 granite pillars representative of the states and jurisdictions of the U.S. who fought in the war are adorned with bronze wreaths one oak and one wheat representing the military and agricultural strength of the country and connected together with a bronze rope motif representing the unity of the country during the period of time. The Rainbow Pool is one of the principal design features of the memorial. The historic waterworks of the Rainbow Pool contribute to the celebratory nature of the memorial and provides seating along the pool circumference for visitors. The project completed safely under budget by approximately 1 million and ahead of schedule. The project opened a month ahead of the formal dedication on May 29 2004.
