Historic Restoration & Additions

Phase 1 of this project was the construction of a new 9,568-SF chapel at the 146-year-old motherhouse/chapel — the first new chapel construction on-site since the late 1880s. Main areas feature porcelain and marble floors with 38’ high ceilings. The design includes new Exonarthex, confessionals, sacristy, and sanctuary, and required the incorporation of religious artwork, statues, and symbols from Spain. Hardaway also coordinated the installation of a large pipe organ and cherry pews and stalls. During Phase 2, Hardaway built a four-story, 157,536-SF addition to the existing structure, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The addition provided space for a new kitchen, dining room, infirmary, laundry, and library plus 160 dorm bedrooms. The building has an environmentally controlled archives and features a large interior courtyard. In Phase 3, Hardaway worked closely with architects on a Design-Build project to repair and restore the building, with a goal to duplicate major features of the structure. Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were overhauled; a new HVAC system, fire sprinklers, smoke detectors, and fire escape stairs were installed; and exterior porches and balconies were replaced. Hardaway also replaced 500 windows and the roof.
