Demolition of ECHO House On Main Street

Description:  It was old, moldy, and of a poor design that was no longer useable.  It is now a grassy field.

Completion:   February 2010

Who Did It?:   Husky Construction Company

Issues Remaining:  The field is not grassy enough; more grass needs to be planted.

Renovation of Kitchen At Parish Center

Description:  Replace appliances, new layout and organization

Completion:  July 2010

Who Did It?:  Volunteers and contractors.

Issues Remaining:  No smoke detectors, exit lights, emergency lights in kitchen as the building code requires.  The contractor did the natural gas installation of the appliances without a permit or inspection and did it improperly.  As it stands, the gas installation is dangerous and the system has had to be shut down.

Cost:  $75,000

 

Current

Renovation and Enlargement of Vianney Room

Description:  Bump out the side to the sidewalk, add entrance patio at the FLC end. Redo the inside.

Completion:  Plan is that work will start on 1 April 2011.

Who Will Do It?:  The architect is Patuxent Architects; the contractor has not yet been chosen.

Issues:  The sizing and design of the utilities (water, electric, and HVAC) should be based on the ultimate facility configuration which may include classrooms at the woods end of the parish center.  The architect has been directed to stop work until he has communicated detailed mechanical design options.

Cost:  $500,000

 

Future

Build a House on Main Street for Retired Priests

Description:  At the site of the ECHO house, a duplex that matches the other SJV campus buildings as well as fits in with the rest of Main Street in Prince Frederick.

Completion:  Years away

Who Will Do It?:  Ideally, an experienced parishioner volunteer will act as the general contractor and will hire various subcontractors to do the work.

Issues:  Probably.

Cost:  3000 sq ft @ $150 per sq ft = $450,000

 

Add Classrooms to the Parish Center on the Woods Side

Description:  Add 2/3 classrooms and new pre-school room, plus renovate existing classrooms and HVAC systems.

Completion:  2012.

Issues:  See the Vianney Room renovation section.  Funding and deciding exactly what to do.

Cost:  $$450,000

 

Demolish the Two Small Houses

Completion:  Years away.

Who Will Do It?:  Contractor.

Issues:  Probably.

Cost:  ~$50,000
