Last night at the Plaza Hotel in New York, the Tenement Museum received a Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award from the New York Landmarks Conservancy. For nearly 50 years, the New York Landmarks Conservancy has been a leader in preserving and restoring New York City’s architectural heritage, and the Moses Awards are the Conservancy’s highest honors for exceptional preservation projects within New York City. Award winning projects must exhibit excellence in the preservation, restoration, or adaptive use of historic buildings, streetscapes, and landscapes that preserve residential, institutional, commercial, religious, and public buildings.
Having provided comprehensive MEP/FP engineering design services in conjunction with the Tenement Museum’s 2018 renovations and expansion, Kohler Ronan was delighted to have been present at the awards dinner and to have the Tenement Museum recognized alongside other unique NYC projects.

Collaborating with Perkins Eastman, Kohler Ronan’s team contributed to the restoration of truly special NYC buildings, commemorating not just architecture, but a truly significant period in the city’s history. The Tenement Museum’s historic buildings serve as a window into the immigrant experience in one of America’s most iconic neighborhoods. The original residences on Orchard Street housed over 15,000 working class immigrants from over 20 nations.
