National Heritage Museum / Scottish Rite Commences Construction

November 2012

Bowdoin Construction recently started construction to consolidate the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite’s office needs within their own museum on site. The project, designed by Bechtel Frank Erickson Architects, involves converting two wings of the Museum of Our National Heritage into offices and meeting rooms to accommodate the daily functions of the Scottish Rite.

The first phase of construction includes a new entry and parking area to the side of the existing museum which will separate the new office functions and allow the museum to be operational throughout construction. The new entry will be carefully blended to the existing brick structure of the museum and new windows will be added to afford views of the exterior. Interior spaces will include all new offices, conference rooms, and meeting rooms with high-end finishes. The new parking area design allows the pastoral landscape around the building to be preserved, a feature prized by both visitors and Lexington residents alike.

The Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite is a charitable fraternal organization that has long been a leader in the Lexington Community.
