St. Francis Solanus Church Addition
Klingner provided complete architectural/engineering services for the St. Francis Solanus Parish Hall. Project included a new parish hall located on the north side of the existing church. Spaces in the new parish hall included a large multi-purpose hall with movable partitions to accommodate Funeral Luncheons, PSR classes, as well as numerous parish group meetings, a commercial kitchen with multiple serving windows, and additional space to accommodate quilters, library/bride dressing room, food pantry, and handicapped restrooms.
The entrance to the facility provided a covered drop-off canopy, vestibule with waiting area, and handicapped entrance to the existing church, minimizing the walking distance to the church as much as possible. An unfinished lower level for storage, accessible from the main level and North 17th Street, was provided. An elevator was also provided for access from 17th Street and to the Lower Level. Klingner also provided printed materials and copies in digital format to the church’s fund raising consultant to help coordinate the fund raising efforts for the project.
