Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation moves forward


The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library Foundation (TRPLF) has announced its architect and construction manager, along with the opening of two offices, signaling the continuance of the project's move forward.

Earlier today, the TRPLF announced that JLG Architects will be the architect, while JE Dunn will be the construction manager for the project. Both JLG and JE Dunn are North Dakota companies, with JLG maintaining five offices in North Dakota and JE Dunn maintaining two offices, in Dickinson and Williston. These announcements followed the September announcement that Snøhetta would be the design architect, with the company designing what will only be the 15th presidential library in the nation.

TRPLF also has announced the opening of two North Dakota offices -- their home office in Medora, the future site of the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library; and a business office, located in Bismarck. Two employees have been added full time -- Tony Erickson, Grand Forks, has been named Associate Director of Design and Construction; and Amy McCann has been named Administrative Director of Design and Construction.

TRPLF announced $100 million in philanthropic commitments on October 27, unlocking a $50 million endowment from the State of North Dakota.
