National Museum of the Marine Corps     

Project: National Museum of the Marine Corps
Location: Triangle, Virginia
Architect: Fentress Bradburn Architects
Owner: U.S. Marine Corps and the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation
General Contractor: Centex Construction
Size: 118,000 square feet
Completed: August, 2006
Summary: The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a 2 story structure with a 210 foot mast depicting the U.S. Marine Corps Memorial of the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima.   The Circular shape of the building and interior partitions created may challenges during the installation of the mechanical system.   This job included a 1.9 million dollar sheet metal subcontract which included exposed ductwork installed 30 feet in the air.   The job required special coordination and scheduling of installations around the museum exhibit installations.   A stringent quality control program also required a full time QC manager for the duration of the project.
