Saint Kevin’s Parish Life Center
The St. Kevin’s Parish Life Center in Springfield, Delaware County, Pa. was completed in early fall of 2002. The project covered over 13,000 sf. and included a gymnasium, parish offices, conference rooms, public lavatories, storage areas, kitchen, and common areas. Challenges included joining the facility to the existing school, close proximity to other structures, and working during school hours and around multiple public functions. Through value engineering, we realized over 8% in net savings to the owner. This complete, out of the ground project featured a masonry and steel truss structure with Dryvit EFIS skin and EPDM roofing. In use, the gymnasium functions as a multi purpose facility hosting tournament basketball games and many fundraising events. Owner references and contact information for this project can be found on this website.
