The 82nd Airborne Museum (http://www.82ndairbornedivisionmuseum.com), located on Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, NC, has reopened the main exhibit after a nearly 2-year renovation. Which is the first major renovation since 1994. The numerous exhibits on display are from Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and as far back as World War I. The modern open floor plan allows viewing of the many collections by era.
Watson Electrical, Fayetteville Construction group, assisted general contractor Turner Strategic Technologies (TST) @TurnerStrategic with the museum renovations. The work included renovation demolition of existing space, installation of all new light fixtures, and associated electrical controls.
Watson Electrical is proud to be a part of this renovation project in honor of the 82nd Airborne Paratroopers.
