Renier Blueprint: March 2017 Newsletter
Featured Project: New Albany Ballet
The New Albany Ballet Company opened their new Renier-built facility in August.
When Tara Miller, artistic director and owner of New Albany Ballet, outgrew her 8,600 s.f. building, she turned to Renier Construction with the task of constructing a new facility to accommodate her expanding list of students. Her wish list for the new building included an open floor plan with room to grow, as well as exceptional design and finish. Renier delivered with an 18,313 s.f. ballet studio with six dance rooms, a large parking lot and a notable grand entrance. Overall, Tara was thrilled with the end result: “The students and I absolutely love the new facility,” Tara said. “Renier did a wonderful job.” Read more.
Renier is working on a 30,000 s.f. warehouse addition for McNaughton-McKay Electric, a wholesale distributor of electrical supplies. The project kicked off in the beginning of January and is expected to wrap up in July. Not only will this project allow McNaughton-McKay Electric to increase warehouse capacity, but it also includes a relocation of counter sales to improve customer experience.
Lexus of Easton Service Center
Renier is building a 36,000 s.f. consolidated service center for Lexus of Easton on Morse Road, just west of the dealership. The project brings all auto repairs and maintenance under one roof for the convenience of customers. Features include a larger reception area and customer lounge, as well as a car wash.

Renier’s internship program is a win-win for both the intern and the Renier team. The year-long internship builds the foundation for a career in construction management, and Renier often gains a full-time team member when the internship ends. Such is the case with William Thompson, project superintendent, and Kyle Prince, project manager, who share their experiences as Renier interns.
Graduates of Renier’s internship program, and now full time team members, William Thompson and Kyle Prince.
