S&P Begins New Priests Home
Friday, September 26, 2014
The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston held groundbreaking ceremonies on September 21 to kick off construction of its new residence for retired priests located at 2407 Holcombe Blvd. near Almeda Road in Houston. Numerous area citizens and dignitaries attended the event, along with representatives from contractor Satterfield & Pontikes Construction (S&P), design firm EKLS Architecture, and program manager U.S. Builders. The Houston Business Unit of S&P will oversee construction of the 34,400-square-foot Archbishop Joseph A. Fiorenza Priest Retirement Residence. The new one-story facility will provide 24 living units, each with bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. S&P will also construct a central common building, which will provide a large living room, kitchen, dining room, administrative offices, chapel, theater and exercise room. The project also includes construction of a new parking area. The $7 million construction project is part of St. Dominic Village, Houston’s only Catholic retirement community.
