Grunley Participates in Groundbreaking of Albemarle County Courts Complex
On June 7th, Grunley was pleased to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony of our Albemarle County Courts Complex Addition and Renovations project in Charlottesville, Virginia! The ceremony included remarks from Jeff Richardson, Albemarle County Executive; Lloyd Snook, Mayor of the City of Charlottesville; Trevor Henry, Deputy County Executive; Emily Kilroy, Assistant to the County Executive; and Donna Price, Chair for Albemarle County’s Board of Supervisors. Following remarks, a ceremonial groundbreaking took place next to the existing building.
The highly anticipated renovation project is one of the largest projects in Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville history. Located across the street from the Circuit Court Building where Thomas Jefferson practiced law, the historic renovation will meet the county’s need to address security and accessibility concerns, and modernize the courthouse. The $51.8 million project scope will involve rehabilitating and renovating the Levy House (c. 1852), demolition of the existing Levy House Annex and connector, and construction of a new General District Court facility on the west side of the complex.
