UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS – SPENCER MUSEUM OF ART
LAWRENCE, KS

The University of Kansas and the Spencer Museum of Art selected Mar Lan Construction as their CM at Risk to carry out the Museum’s major Phase 1 renovation project. The project transformed more than 27,000 square feet of the Museum, representing the first major renovation of the building since it was constructed in 1977.

Phase 1 includes an expanded lobby and gathering space and a complete renovation of the Central Court and surrounding galleries. New additions to the space include a central elevator and staircase, and a two-story, floor-to-ceiling window that allows natural light inside the galleries and connects the Museum to the historic Marvin Grove.

Acclaimed architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners lead the project and teamed with Sabatini & Associates as an associate architect.
