Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory School - Sister Caroline Collins, De Paul Campus Theater
A new 11,000 s.f. performing arts theater was built within an existing courtyard of the school's De Paul Campus (adjoining Saint Mary's Cathedral). In addition to the theater, the project included dressing rooms, music classrooms and courtyard improvements. A new 4 stop elevator was designed within the existing footprint to accommodate ADA needs, and life safety upgrades were made to the pre-existing De Paul Campus (approximately 28,000 s.f.). Construction continued through the school year which required phasing to accommodate students and school activities.
Cahill self-performed all concrete work on this project, including radius walls using the PERI Rundflex Panel System and integral color concrete. Cahill also worked with the architect and the city to meet historical preservation requirements associated with the existing building.
