Clark Delivers the National Museum of the United States Army

Clark Construction recently delivered the National Museum of the United States Army to the Army Historical Foundation. The 185,000-square-foot museum celebrates the service of the over 30 million men and women who have worn the U.S. Army uniform since 1775.

Located at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, the National Museum of the United States Army is comprised of two adjoining buildings, a custom building and the exhibit wing. The custom building contains the Experiential Learning Center, Veterans’ Hall, special exhibition gallery, main lobby, café, museum store, and offices. The 60,000 square-foot exhibit wing, a one level, open-concept space, will house many of the museum’s exhibits.

The museum, whose façade is uniquely comprised of glass and steel panels, features internal high-end terrazzo and granite finishes and stained oak millwork. 

As part of the National Museum of the United States Army project, the Clark team also delivered the Medal of Honor Garden, promenade with donor pavers, and entry plaza to support the museum’s future outdoor programs. 

Once the museum opens to the public in 2020, the U.S. Army will own and operate the museum while the Army Historical Foundation will manage various revenue-generating activities including the museum store, café, simulators, and catering services for special events.
