St. Paul Building Assessment-Church Presentation Feb. 14th after Mass
Earlier this year, Partners in Design Architects was retained by St. Paul the Apostle
parish to inspect its parish building and systems, provide an assessment of their
condition, and identify work items necessary to keep them in good condition and
working order, and to proactively plan for any out of the ordinary capital
expenditures which may be required over the next decade and beyond.
The Finance Council shared their findings after the 10:00 Mass on Sunday February 14th.
These issues have been categorized into groups including Sitework, Building Shell, Interior
Components and Finishes, Mechanical and Electrical. Each item was then assigned a priority to
remedy depending on their urgency for correction, replacement or repair.
Work Items identified as “Immediate” will need to be addressed in the next one to two
years. Intermediate Work Items may not present any immediate concern, but if left unaddressed
could present future problems. We recommend that items assigned this priority be addressed
in the next three to five years. Long term Work Items are not pressing and may not need to be
addressed for five to ten years or longer. They do not present any immediateconcern,
but should be planned for in the future.
