Nestled in historic York County, The Yorktown Victory Center stands near the battlefield where allied American and French forces won the decisive battle of the American Revolution in 1781. Under the direction of the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation and in partnership with W.M. Jordan Company, George Nice & Sons was part of the workforce that transitioned the Victory Center into the interactive American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. The new museum will utilize exhibition galleries, films, participatory experiences and a scaled life-size encampment and farm as a means to chronicle the vast importance of the Revolutionary period, from colonial unrest to the formation of our new nation.
George Nice & Sons was contracted to install the utility framework needed to service the water, sewer and storm systems of the new museum; site grade work, and the construction & paving of new parking lots and the upgraded entrance. In addition, as a LEED certified project, George Nice & Sons installed a state-of-the-art stormwater system that serves to filter all storm water runoff prior to its introduction back into the groundwater. Final project completion is estimated to take place in late 2016.
