The City of Chesapeake received the 2020 American Public Works Association (APWA) Mid-Atlantic Project of the Year Award for the Great Bridge Battlefield and Waterways History Foundation Museum and Visitors Center project. The award was recognized in the category of Structures, between $5 – $25 million.
MBP provided construction management and inspections services to include schedule management, budget management, quality assurance inspections, and VDOT/FHWA project documentation for the construction of a this new 8,550-gross-square-foot, one-story Museum and Visitor Center in Georgian-style architecture.

The Battle of Great Bridge represented a turning point in the Revolutionary War and was the first land battle fought in Virginia. The museum houses permanent and interactive exhibits representing the Battle of Great Bridge along with the history of the canal system in Chesapeake, Virginia.
