National Archives

Renovation and Façade Restoration

Grunley's first project for the National Archives and Records Administration involved the complex renovation of the 950,000 SF National Archives Building. We upgraded the major building systems, improved security and storage conditions for historical documents like the Charters of Freedom, brought the facility into code compliance, created new museum and exhibit space and a 290-seat theater, and cleaned and tuck-pointed the façade.

Since that time, Grunley has been awarded three consecutive IDIQ contracts to provide CM and design-build services for NARA facilities that have included 95 additional task order projects. The most significant task order is the National Archives Experience 2 (NAE2) project completed at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC. Grunley renovated the research library, created a new orientation plaza, and built a new exhibit gallery. Grunley also constructed the “myArchives Store” under a separate contract with the National Archives Foundation.
