Work is underway at the site of the new National WWI Memorial in Washington, D.C. project! The Grunley Construction Company Project Team is currently tagging and documenting the existing conditions of every stone in the park to determine which are salvageable and which need to be replaced.
Salvageable stones will be stored offsite while the underground utilities and new structural work takes place, then reset in their original positions.
Land Collective, the landscape designer for the memorial, will be identifying and tagging trees to ensure that the appropriate ones are available for re-use when trees will be planted later this year.
