Building for the Next Generation

Our Projects

St. Bartholomew Catholic Community and School


Project Description

The first part of this project was 32,400 SF of new and renovated space, including an 8,000 SF two-story addition. Work consisted of the partial demolition, expansion and reconstruction of the church sanctuary, narthex, lower-level offices and meeting rooms. The structural system is a combination of structural steel precast concrete plank and architectural precast concrete wall panels.

The second part of the project totaled 6,500 SF of new and renovated space. McGough remodeled throughout the adjacent school and did a vertical expansion of 1,500 SF, including an extension of the existing elevator.

Building and modernizing sacred spaces has been McGough’s business for more than six generations. Our experience has taught us that places of worship often serve functions well beyond those of traditional sanctuaries – including as recreational and community gathering places. We understand the economic challenges of these projects. To progress from concept to finished product requires collaboration between congregation and builder. Crafting the vision often means balancing aspirations with economic realities.

McGough understands that sacred buildings can be large-volume spaces with unique structural, mechanical, acoustical and lighting requirements. They need to remain inviting, safe and user-friendly during the remodeling or renovation process. The work may need to be done on flexible schedules or in separate phases to accommodate ongoing activities.
