Brody Jewish Center | Historic Renovation

Posted on Oct 19, 2018 in Community, Historic, Schools, Uncategorized | No Comments

In June of this year, Martin Horn began renovations on this historic 100-year-old building. The Brody Jewish Center has become the hub for Jewish life around the University of Virginia. Students use the center for a variety of activities including dinners, studying and weekly meetings. The 10,000 square foot space has a small apartment on the upper floor and multi-use rooms throughout. The DHR (Department of Historic Resources) has allocated historic tax credits for the project. This means all original details to the house must be preserved or repaired for historical accuracy. The expected completion date of the project is January 15th 2019.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on this renovation! Each Historic site comes with it’s own set of unique challenges. Each window was removed, repaired and sent out for new glass before being re-installed. We also leveled the floor in the kitchen and made sure the building was structurally sound.
