St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church

Completed in 2018, the St Francis Xavier Catholic Church Narthex is a 3,000 SF addition to provide assembly spaces for the growing and storied congregation at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. While small in square footage, this project was technically and logistically challenging as the addition was constructed over Richmond Street, a previously operational thoroughfare bordering Hanover Park in downtown Brunswick. The existing Richmond Street utilities and power supply were relocated around the adjacent block and structures prior to constructing the addition, which delicately tied in 2 historic structures all while working with the congregation to keep them in operation and minimize the impact of construction. Despite the project’s inherent challenges, it was delivered on-schedule and under-budget through a negotiated delivery.
