Grunley served as the prime contractor for renovations and major new additions to this existing school. We selectively separated the original 1938 building and then demolished all of the existing additions. In the original building, we replaced the mechanical and electrical systems and preserved and restored the facade. New additions totaling ~55,000 SF were built. The scope also involved extensive earthwork, site utilities, landscaping and hardscaping. The facility houses Arlington Public School programs and the new Westover Library. This project earned LEED® NC 2.0 Gold. It also received several awards, including a "2010 Best Sustainable Project of the Year Award - New Construction" by the Associated General Contractors of Metropolitan Washington.
