St. John Vianney High School

Window Replacement/Leadership Center Renovation

The window replacement project removed the original uninsulated steel window frames with single glazing and baked enamel panels. The lower portion of the openings was infilled with new masonry. Thermally broken storefront framing with tinted, insulated glass was installed for daylighting and energy efficiency.

The Leadership Center renovation project converted a large under-utilized space which was originally the School Library to a Counseling/Large Meeting/Campus Ministry space. This space is used for presentations and meetings with college representatives.

New Gateway Entrance Element

Recently, M+H Architect’s Larry Valenza and Zach Wester, both alums of Vianney, donated their time to design the new gateway element and Brian Grant of Grant Masonry (also an alum) built it. The new entrance brings a finishing touch to recent improvements including the installation of new lights, new synthetic turf on Don Heeb Field and resurfacing the track. The gateway design consists of brick piers to match the school building, ornamental iron gates and archway with a school logo medallion, and lighting fixtures to brighten up the plaza area around the entrance.
