Sacred Heart was a special client for Orr Builders.

This was actually 3 projects in one consisting of the Junior High Expansion, Adoration Chapel, and a New Parish Hall. It completed the final phase of the parish's vision for their Worship and Education Campus.

The Junior High expansion consisted of new classrooms and facilities for nearly 200 additional students. This included four (4) large and two (2) small classrooms, a new library and added office space. We also remodeled the existing science laboratory. Sacred Heart now offers a complete education for K-8 grade.

The main church structure was expanded to include a new Adoration Chapel. This was the vision of a parishioner and offers an inspirational setting for private worship. It is attached to the main church and accessible from the main courtyard.

Completion of the campus was the construction of a new Parish Hall. This is truly a high class structure with the feel of a college campus. It includes an indoor and outdoor stage, meeting and conference facilities, basketball, and volleyball courts. It even has a full kitchen as fine as any restaurant in town. Outside the kitchen area is a large covered patio with a misting system for the kids to enjoy their lunch. Each portion of the facility has the state of the art communications and audio visual equipment. Creative paving and landscaping creates a piazza between the Church and the Hall. The exterior stage faces the piazza providing an arrangement for outdoor assemblies and entertainment. The entire project was a great experience. On a regular basis the students, teachers and staff were visibly excited as construction moved on. All members of the construction team were wonderful to work with. The Dioceses and church reps as well as the architect made a very professional team. At the conclusion of the project the students and staff provided an appreciation breakfast for all of Orr Builders and subcontractors. It was truly "heart" felt appreciation from everyone at Sacred Heart
