Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church

Roman Catholic Diocese in Lexington

Project Description: History and preservation are hallmarks of Danville, which was one of only five towns in the country to receive the Great American Main Street Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church lies in the heart of that historic downtown with its sanctuary building dating back to 1868, so it was important to hire a construction partner with the expertise and ties to Central Kentucky. The new exterior façade so closely matched the original exterior that the differences are barely discernable to the casual observer. The sanctuary was expanded from 3,600 square feet to 7,200 square feet, and a social hall was added in the new basement. The altar, which originally faced South, was reconstructed to face West.
Firm Role: Congleton-Hacker served as construction manager at risk and general trades contractor.
