Building for the Next Generation
New construction of a reinforced concrete structure featuring a folded-plate roof with a pillarless span of 180 FT and a 2,500-ton bell tower banner resting gracefully on four footings. The abbey was one of McGough’s first projects – and it continues to be the most important construction project in our company’s portfolio.

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.
