Virginia Commonwealth University | Egyptian Building

Richmond, VA
Services: Historic Preservation

Designed by Philadelphia architect Thomas S. Stewart in 1846, and altered in 1939, the Egyptian Building is one of the most significant examples of exotic revival architecture in the country. An exterior conditions assessment was performed, giving specific recommendations for restoration. As a result of this study, the building was rehabilitated according to the recommendations and Commonwealth Architects provided construction administration services to ensure all aspects of the delicate restoration work was completed with care.
