Grunley completed two separate contracts at the 1,600,000 square foot headquarters of the U.S. Department of Energy. The first project was an office upgrade (7,500 square foot area) that renovated the space architecturally and upgraded the mechanical, electrical and telecommunication systems. The second larger project involved the phased installation of a complete new wet-pipe sprinkler system and annunciated, voice-activated fire alarm system throughout the building.
