The Frick Collection

Sciame is the Construction Manager responsible for the renovation of two landmark buildings, the Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library, adjacent and interconnected buildings between 70th and 71st streets on Fifth Avenue.

The project will include the creation of new exhibition, programming, and conservation spaces within the institution’s existing footprint. The proposed area of new construction is about 35,000 SF, which includes a small new extension, as well as expansion work above and below the existing building footprint. In addition, there are varying levels of renovation work in most areas of the existing building.
