188,000 Square Feet
Clark will construct a 188,000 square-foot museum comprised of two adjoining buildings – a custom building and exhibit wing. The custom building will contain a main lobby, experiential learning center, veterans’ hall, army art and special exhibitions gallery, as well as retail space, a café, and offices. The exhibit wing – a one level, open-concept space – will house many of the museum’s exhibits. The building’s façade will be comprised of glass and metal panels. The museum also will feature high-end terrazzo and granite finishes, as well as stained oak millwork.
The project will be constructed on a 46-acre site and will include many outdoor programs and spaces, including a pedestrian promenade, parade field, entry plaza, memorial garden, amphitheater, army education trail, and simulator pad. The hardscape scope of work will incorporate a mix of mesabi black and Virginia mist granite flatwork.
The museum is designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification.
Substantial completion is scheduled for 2019.
