Saint Gerard Majella’s motto is: “Rooted in Faith, Grounded in Excellence, Prepared for Success.” M+H has recently completed several projects for Saint Gerard Majella as noted below.
New Classroom Building Addition
The existing 1-story west wing of the school was first demolished, and in its place a 3-story school addition was constructed. The addition contains a new Cafeteria, Kitchen, Administrative Offices, Classrooms, Toilets, Mechanical Rooms and Maintenance Facilities. The remodeled area turned the old Cafeteria and Kitchen into a new Library and Computer Lab. The site incorporates a new loop drive around the school and pervious asphalt pavement to negate the need for storm water detention.
New Narthex Addition
The Church Addition includes a more generous Narthex area for gathering after mass, an Adoration Chapel, Toilet Rooms and Janitor’s Closet. A curved building facade provides a buffer space between the new addition and the parking lot, and helps to gather people from multiple directions upon arrival. The curved copper canopy has a chamfered edge to compliment the existing edge configuration of the original church roof. Display niches and cases were included to highlight artwork and sculptures from the Pastor’s private art collection.
In the most current project, M+H helped Saint Gerard Majella with replacing the standing-seam copper roof on their existing Church building.
