Renwick Renovation


A major renovation of the Renwick Gallery currently is underway and the building is closed to the public. Westlake Reed Leskosky is the lead architectural design and engineering firm; Consigli Construction Co., Inc. is the general construction contractor. This project includes completely renewed infrastructure, enhanced historic features and other upgrades that will make the National Historic Landmark building a 21st-century destination attraction.
