Grunley Attends Renovation of Operational Archives and Research Facility | Buildings 46/67 Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
On Monday, August 8th, Grunley was pleased to attend the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for our Renovation of Operational Archives and Research Facility | Buildings 46/67 project at Washington Navy Yard! The $45 million renovation transformed two former ordnance factories and warehouses, both built in the mid to late 1800’s, into a single state-of-the-art, two-floor structure that maintains the building's national historic district status. The new building, scheduled for final completion in early 2023, will now house the Naval History and Heritage Command's (NHHC) Navy Art Collection and Underwater Archeology Branch of the Collection Management Division and Histories and Archives Division, including the Navy Library and Archives Branch. Monday’s program included brief remarks from Admiral Mike Gilday, Chief of Naval Operations, as well as leaders from the Naval Historic Research Center and NHHC. Congratulations to our project team for achieving this significant milestone!
