Seton High School Addition & Renovation

The project involved a unique and very complex mission at an occupied and operational school facility-among the most sensitive construction safety environments available. To substantiate, the scope involved constructing a new addition while simultaneously renovating existing school spaces, all while the school remained occupied and operational.

Work included required both new construction and renovation work in a hazardous, high-risk environment-a very complicated undertaking, requiring high-level environment of care planning. New construction work for the addition included a full scope, ground-up: footers, slabs, walls, steel structural elements, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, telecommunications, fire protection, windows, doors, curtain walls, veneer, roofing, metal wall panels, and interior finishes. The renovation work involved select demolition of interior spaces, new interior finishes, and other upgrades. Unique requirements included custom drywall framing to accommodate several geometric shapes and configurations that required creative and inventive ways to accomplish the look desired; concealed HVAC equipment to ensure sound levels were as low as possible; custom steeple (built offsite, then delivered in stages and assembled in place; and fresco painted in the addition-according to the artist, one of a handful in the country at the time.
