St. Francis Monastery Renovation and Addition
PAYING HOMAGE TO THE HISTORY AND DEDICATION OF YEARS PAST
C.D. Smith provided construction management services for renovations and an addition to the historic St. Francis Monastery, the first true renovation since the last building was completed in 1892. Being the oldest standing Friary for the Capuchin Province of St. Joseph and still being in structurally sound condition, it was decided by the Capuchins that it was time for this space to return to its original purpose–to be a Friary.
Renovations included the restoration of historic spaces such as the refectory (dining hall), libraries, chapel, cloister, 1869 friar cells, and meditation rooms. Modern amenities were also added, such as all new HVAC systems and electrical systems.
New friar rooms include private bedrooms and toilet rooms. In addition to interior renovations, all exterior windows of the Friary were replaced with an architectural style that is more fitting to the building. The brick was also cleaned and restored to its original cream city color.
