Return to Church Renovation Home Page



December 4 - December 10, 2016


Week 19 saw the removal of the Blessed Virgin Mary Mountain Range. The dirt removed for the basement was taken off site giving us the space needed to begin foundation work on the east end of the church. This is the sacristy and restrooms section as well as the handicap ramps and “patio” area. We will also see the block walls going up starting at the SW corner. Work on “tying” in the floor from the old section to the new section will also begin this week. The picture above is a view from the basement looking through the crawl space access.

Week 19 – Completed

• All elevations of the basement are back filled with the exception of the exterior stairwell.

• Removal of excess dirt.

Week 20 – Goal

• Pour the footings and walls at the east end of the church for the footing and foundation that support the entire rear of the church.

• Masonry begins on the SW corner of the building with the block.

• MC begins lay out and installation of the air handling units in the basement.

• Fire sprinkler contractor to start in the existing structure.

• Nicor to return Gas meter to the new foundation and install gas line.

• Steel for the link between the two buildings installed.
