Grunley's subcontractor Scaffold Resource, LLC received a 2012 Craftsmanship STAR Award for Scaffolding & Rigging on this project. The award was presented by the Washington Building Congress.
Grunley’s work is intended to preserve this historic building that opened in 1881, stabilize and revitalize the building envelope, and prepare the building for future phases of the full building renovation. Our scope of work includes:
- Full replacement of the existing metal and slate roofs;
- Repair, reinforcement, and partial replacement of the iron roof structure;
- Installation of new steel, masonry and concrete structural elements to improve seismic, wind, blast, and snow load performance;
- Replacement of the existing replacement windows with new windows;
- Masonry and ornamental metals restoration; and
- Installation of new roof drainage, snow melting, and lightning arrest equipment and systems.
The museum is presently closed in preparation for the full revitalization effort.
