Schematic Design Progress


James McCrery and his talented team have been busy working on the schematic design for the monastery.   We were pleased to spend June 1st reviewing the progress made.   It never ceases to amaze us to see how Mr McCrery has such profound insight into the life of the Carmelite monks and their needs!  Truly this man has been chosen for this noble work by God Himself!

Chapter House

As you can see from these interim floor plans and elevations, the monastery is well on its way for the glory of God and to house the Carmelite Monks.  While there are a handful of changes to be made, we are hoping to have the Schematic Design Phase completed by the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on July 16th.

Gate House

This first stage of architectural drawings includes defining the scope of the project and developing a site plan, initial floor plans and elevations, all of which will allow the Foundation to receive a cost estimate and begin to receive bids from possible contractors.  The next stage will be Design/Development to determine the more particular details.

Cloister

If all goes as planned, the Foundation hopes to be able to break ground on Holy Thursday, 2011.  Needless to say, there is a tremendous amount of work to be done; your generosity is of the greatest importance lest Fr Prior be forced to turn vocations away due to a lack fo space.

Rendering

Your charity is making this project possible.  Thank you.  Please check back soon for more design updates, floor plans and elevations as we complete the first architectural stage of Schematic Design.
