Chosen through a resumé review process, A.P. Thomas Construction, Inc. worked with the church’s committee in a design and assist role, which included helping to establish and maintain a project budget. The complicated site, backed up to a major thoroughfare, required 20-foot-tall sheet-pile walls and shoring to stabilize the soil. Once the wall was built and the existing structure was demolished, construction on the parish hall quickly progressed. The 9,900-square-foot center features beautiful wood finishes and includes offices, meeting areas, restrooms and a commercial kitchen.
