The Glessner House Museum honored Jack Tribbia, the president of Berglund’s Restoration Division, at its 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration on Dec. 14. Tribbia was honored for having a significant impact on the museum and the City of Chicago.

The house, which is a National Historic Landmark and was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson, has served as an inspiration to many architects such as Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright. The home now serves as a museum that provides guided tours of the home’s period rooms.

Tribbia served as a board member from 2006 to 2009. Under Tribbia’s leadership, Berglund Construction has completed many projects for the Glessner House Museum, including the coach house restoration, building façade envelope maintenance, interior restoration work, drain sewer repairs and sidewalk / curb repairs.

“The Glessner House Museum has and continues to serve as a platform to attract talented people who help better our society in preserving our heritage for generations to come,” Tribbia said.
