Renaissance Building Products

Construction and Building Materials Supplier

Renaissance Building Products, Inc (RBP) is one of the largest construction material suppliers in the region. We specialize in louvers, grilles, wall protection, expansion joint covers, column covers, phenolic panels and various rainscreen systems. Experts in construction materials such as architectural glass, porcelain, foam aluminum, and composites. Our primary client base operates in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, Long Island, Westchester County, Rockland County, Orange County, New Jersey and Connecticut. But you will also find our products installed in buildings from Miami to Boston.

Our clients value our ability to take standard products and turn them into custom building products in order to achieve the design they need. Architects, owner’s reps, contractors, mechanical engineers, facade consultants, structural engineers and facility managers value our 30 years of experience because we understand how to mitigate risk early in the design process. We focus not only on our products, but their life cycle analysis and code requirements. Integration of surrounding materials and long-term maintenance also play an instrumental role and are two of the driving factors that are often overlooked. Our slogan “Products in Place, not Place Holders” is a serious part of why we have been involved in so many projects around the globe.
