The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown replaces the Yorktown Victory Center. W.M. Jordan Company is construction manager for the first phases of the project, including a new 80,000-square-foot facility and visitor parking areas and eventual demolition of existing structures. The new building provides expanded exhibition galleries, classrooms and support functions. The galleries feature period artifacts, re-created immersive environments, short films and interactive exhibits to provide a tangible connection to people and events of the Revolutionary period.

The Associated Builders and Contractors Virginia Chapter (ABC Va) awarded this project an Honor Award of Excellence in the Institutional Category (over $20 million) at their annual Excellence in Construction awards.
