The history of Glenwood Cemetery, Houston’s first rural garden, dates back to 1871. The property has grown over the years, now totaling 84 acres of burial grounds for some of Texas’ most notable and influential individuals. Glenwood imagined bronze covering the walls of their primary building, and Bellows brought our team in to help make the idea a reality.

We served as professional engineer for the facade design. At the beginning of the project, we created a thoughtfully designed plan to build and install bronze panel cladding on the exterior facáde of the building. Sheets of material were imported from Germany, and the Renfrow team used modern, high-technology tools, and old-world finishing techniques to get each piece to its exact specifications.

Great care and expertise were needed to install each panel, and the hand-rubbed patina gives the bronze panels an aged-brass appearance. The building’s interior features bronze walls, ceilings, door jams, handrails, and an etched donor wall, all of which we fabricated and installed.

Our team of estimators, engineers, fabricators, and installers worked seamlessly together to create exactly what our client imagined. The final result is a beautiful bronze-clad building that is a great addition to the peaceful and prestigious grounds of Glenwood Cemetery.


In the middle of a busy urban landscape exists Levy Park Conservancy, a vibrant place where Houstonians go to connect with nature. Renfrow was tasked with translating Levy Park’s desire for colorful, yet functional recreational equipment into reality to create a space where people could escape city life. Through meticulously artistic methods and planning, our team executed the fabrication and installation of unique water features, play structures, and more. The end result is a beautiful park filled with one-of-a-kind spaces for families and pets to enjoy for years to come.

Urban spaces often lack the tranquility and peaceful retreats that nature provides. But what doesn’t naturally exist deep within cities can often be recreated with a little imagination.

Renfrow assisted in creating shade structures to provide people working in Downtown Houston with a space to commune, relax, and enjoy nature. Many different elements came together to create these shade structures, including metal and wood, with the idea of incorporating natural components into the space. This required great communication and precision to keep a seamless collaboration process with the many different trades needed for this project. Our installation team was the shining star; their attention-to-detail ensured each piece of the project worked together perfectly, providing a tranquil space for Houston employees to enjoy.
