Las Vegas-based contractor to head the long-anticipated expansion
SR Construction was recently named the general contractor for the upcoming expansion project for the Neon Museum. The expansion will consist of renovating and repurposing the Reed Whipple Community Center to be used by the Neon Museum. Totaling over 34,000 sq. ft., the renovated community center will provide much-needed space for continued growth for the popular Las Vegas museum.
“We are honored to have been selected by the Neon Museum for their expansion and we are excited to get started on this project,” said Jeff Northrup, senior vice president at SR Construction. “We look forward to working with the Neon Museum, SH Architecture, and our trade partners to bring life to this facility and give it a new purpose. The Neon Museum is an iconic attraction in Las Vegas, and we are proud to assist them in their growth, allowing them to continue to be a place for the community and tourists to experience our city’s history.”
The renovation will include site work, the addition of masonry walls and fences, electrical service upgrades, restroom additions, handicap access modifications, complete MEP upgrades, and both interior and exterior improvements.
In the next thirty years following the renovation of the community center, the museum has plans for continued growth, including the launch of an indoor gallery, neon craft demonstrations, classrooms, offices, and storage.
