Immaculate Conception Church – Marlborough, MA
BWK Construction Co., Inc. served as the General Contractor for the renovation of Immaculate Conception Church in Marlborough. The design team was led by Angelo Petrozzelli of Design Partnership, Inc. The primary focus of the Immaculate Conception project was to increase accessibility for the parishioners. The installation of a passenger elevator allows for handicapped accessibility to all levels of the Church. BWK met the challenge to seamlessly integrate a visually obtrusive elevator hoist way with that of the stained glass windows and the granite that adorn the exterior of the Church, as well as the extensive millwork on the interior. The entrance to the elevator vestibule mirrors the entryway on the opposite side of the Church with matching slate roof and Chelmsford Grey granite stonework. The MEP systems have been updated throughout with a new gas-fired HVAC system, fire alarm system, light fixture package and additional toilet rooms. Included in the renovation is a chapel area with new pews, a complete ceramic tile floor throughout, oak wainscot paneling along the walls, and 100-year-old, German made stained glass windows. Immaculate Conception Church is a splendor of soaring spires, detailed stonework and meticulously crafted millwork.
