Clinton Gravely And The Civil Rights Museum

The News & Record reports that the International Civil Rights Center and Museum is involved in arbitration with local architect Clinton Gravely.

Gravely's reputation is quite poor in the local construction industry. Some general contractors I know refuse to bid anything Gravely designed. Others apply a "Gravely factor" to their bids, additional money to offset unnecessary heartache from the architect.

My company does work for dozens of local general contractors and subcontractors. With very few exceptions, we will not quote work that has been designed by Gravely or his firm.

Without knowing the specifics of this case, I feel better knowing the ICRCM has a new architect in place for the rest of the project.
