Invitations for bids on the remodeling of Sacred Heart Monastery / Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology have been sent; a general contractor is to be selected on March 31. Move-out is to take place May 4-9 and demolition is to begin on May 11. It is hoped that most of the significant (loud) work can be done in-between school sessions so that it is less disruptive.
Classroom work is to be completed by mid-August. Work on the third and fourth floors is to be done in October with the final date to be determined by the general contractor. Several options are being reviewed for student housing. There will be no May session at SHSST; housing needs will begin with the first summer session of ECS.
Among the tasks to be accomplished during this phase of the renovation are new student rooms with private baths, a new rector’s suite, updated classrooms and offices, and extended fire abatement systems.
