St. Basil/Visitation Catholic Parish Church


AIA Honor Awards Honor Awards Nominee for Preservation/Adaptive Reuse 2003

Jaeger Nickola, Ltd.  
Chicago, Illinois  
The remodeling of this one hundred year old church included relocating the main entry stair, adding an elevator for handicapped accessibility, reinforcing a portion of the roof to receive a new mechanical unit, adding a mechanical mezzanine, and expanding the sanctuary by removing a bearing wall. Materials utilized in the structural renovation included pre-engineered wood products, structural steel, reinforced masonry, steel grating, and light gauge metal framing. The location of the concrete elevator pit near the existing exterior wall required the employment of an earth retention system to avoid undermining the rubble foundation.
