As a first phase of the overall restoration of its iconic cathedral, the Trustees of St. Patrick’s Cathedral implemented a full renovation of the rectory and minor renovations to the Cardinal’s residence. The facility serves as the center of the clergy’s religious life and includes a library, meeting spaces, public outreach areas, a commercial kitchen and residences for priests. The project included the full renovation of the living quarters, including replacement of the windows, roof, elevator, fire protection systems, life safety systems, HVAC systems and all infrastructure, as well as the restoration of the historic interior finishes.
Role + Responsibilities
Key to the success of the project was the coordination and integration of the new infrastructure within the existing historic building. The Trustees of St. Patrick’s Cathedral engaged Zubatkin to manage the design, approvals and implementation of the work. The Zubatkin team was also responsible for the coordination and phased logistics planning to temporarily relocate all Rectory residents during construction and return them back to their original apartments at the project’s completion.
