Grunley and its joint venture partner served as the Design-Build Contractor for a new 40,000 square foot, single-story child development center. The facility provides child care, family home care, pre-school enrichment programs and before and after school programs for ~300 military personnel children. The new center was designed to allow plenty of natural light into the facility. The child activity rooms are inviting and provide a positive learning environment. Activity rooms are grouped by age, ranging from infant to toddler. Other spaces include support staff offices and a full service kitchen. The project earned LEED NC 2.2 Silver certification.
