Huntington Library Renovation

Project Description For this project, the 55,000 square-foot mansion and art gallery was renovated, providing a complete seismic structural renovation and replacement of mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems. The Huntington Art Gallery was the original residence of Henry E. Huntington and is located on 207 acres.  The original buildings were constructed between 1909-1911. The changes to interior finishes were completed so that features, such as air supply, would maintain historical integrity.
