The Rodin Museum is among Philadelphia’s cultural treasures, renowned not only for the beauty of its grounds and architecture, but also for housing one of the world’s largest collections of works by the sculptor Auguste Rodin. Performed in the spirit of its original 1929 design, this project includes an extensive and detailed restoration of the building exterior, as well as a rejuvenation of the surrounding garden and landscape, ensuring that the Rodin Museum will be accessible to generations for years to come.

CVMNEXT was engaged as construction manager by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the Fairmount Park Commission during the design process, and worked closely with the client’s preservation department and OLIN, collaborating to provide real-time cost modeling and construction sequencing. This information aided in maintaining budget and schedule, and also allowed for continued visitor access throughout construction.

The Rodin Museum was awarded a 2013 Grand Jury Award by the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.
