Estimator/Project Manager

Renaissance Development is a Washington, DC-based construction company that specializes in tuckpointing: the restoration of historic brick buildings using traditional methods and materials. Our efforts not only return these buildings to their original appearance; they also ensure their structural integrity for decades to come.

During the past twelve years, the company has completed hundreds of projects in DC neighborhoods including Capitol Hill, Shaw, LeDroit Park, Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Woodley Park, Glover Park, Georgetown, Adams Morgan, Kalorama, and Columbia Heights. Renaissance Development also works in Old Town Alexandria, one of Virginia’s largest historic districts.

Dr. Christina K. Wilson, founder and president of Renaissance Development, holds a doctorate in architectural history from the University of Virginia. After a distinguished career in adult education—teaching college level courses and developing museum education programs—Dr. Wilson founded Renaissance Development in 2004.

Dr. Wilson’s extensive knowledge of historic buildings, combined with the meticulous efforts of the company’s skilled artisans, has made Renaissance Development the Washington Metropolitan Region’s preeminent company in masonry restoration.

After restoring hundreds of brick buildings in the District of Columbia and Old Town, the company is currently expanding its operations to include new development in historic neighborhoods.
