Parish Hall Project

Parish Hall Updates

August 25, 2017

The New Parish Hall is on schedule to be complete by the end of October!  The furniture is scheduled for delivery in Mid-November.  The Parish Hall will be ready for use by January 2018.  A review of costs indicate we are on budget but that can change before we are issued an occupancy permit.  There have been no lost time accidents.  Please continue to pray for the safety of the works.

August 1, 2017

Roof, brick & veneer work has been completed.  Interior metal stud framing has also been completed.

As soon as the necessary approvals from both the city and state are completed, the drywall installation will begin.  The drywall installation, along with taping and prime paint is scheduled to be completed by the end of August.  Completion of the building is scheduled for the end of October.  Furniture has been ordered and delivery scheduled after the completion of the building.

Please continue to pray for the safety of our workers.  To date, no lost time accident has occurred.  Saint Joseph, pray for us.

June 2017

Keep an eye on the new parish hall over the next two weeks you will see significant changes in the exterior appearance.  Both the roof & bricks will be completed.  Interior work continues without the interruption of rain.  Thus far we have had no lost days work caused by accidents.  Our prayers are being answered.  Please continue to pray for good weather and for the safety on our construction workers.

April 2017

Building of the New Parish Hall continues on Schedule.

  • Structural Steel Erection will be complete April 17

The next phase of construction

  • Metal Walls

Provided we continue to have good weather, this phase will be completed in 60 Days.

Weather permitting we could have our New Parish Hall sometime in September!

February 20, 2017

We continue to make great progress on the New Parish Hall.

  • February, complete all underground utility and data rough ins, seal the foundation and install a water drain system
  • March, builders will begin working with structural steel. This is when we will be able to see our parish hall really take form.

See the posters in the gather area of Church for a detailed construction timeline.

The great weather has allowed construction to stay on schedule.

Please pray for continuing good weather!

Monsignor Callahan and the Parish Hall Building Committee have approved the final budget for the Parish Hall.  The budget of $7,300,000 includes construction, architectural and engineering costs, as well as the cost of the land and the furnishings.  You might be getting a glimpse of the footing and foundation work out of the church windows each Sunday.  Steel and joist work will begin March 1.  Keep your eyes open in the next couple of weeks for a construction calendar in the bulletin and in the gathering area of Church.  Weather permitting we will be in our New Parish Hall by early October.

January 15, 2017

Foundation work is moving along on the New Parish Hall.  The structural steel has been ordered.  Monsignor Callahan and the Building Committee will approve a final budget this month.  We are still working toward a Fall 2017 completion date.  As you may imagine, unforeseeable delays are part of any construction project and we have suffered a few.  Preschool will be coming to Saint Joseph Parish in 2018.  Saint Joseph, Pray for us.

November 13, 2016

Grading of the building site will continue over the next several weeks, with foundation following in the early part of December. The building committee will meet with BSI, our construction manager, on November 22. Following that meeting, we should be able to provide a more detailed timeline of the various stages of the project. We are still shooting for completion in August, 2017. Please continue to pray for the success of the project and for the safety of all workers involved.
