Providing Excellence in Design combined with Exceptional Service!
St. John Vianney Manor is a retirement home for priests within the Diocese of Pittsburgh that was in need of many updates. This project was recently completed and a dedication ceremony was held in December 2017 to celebrate the conclusion of the project and bless the brand-new facility. Members of the Diocese, seminarians, residents, Hayes Design Group Architects, consultants and contractors attended the ceremony.
The project included renovations to the existing thirty-one residences including new bathrooms, entry doors, finishes, HVAC systems, and lighting. Additional residences were added for a total of thirty-five upon project completion. Major HVAC and electrical infrastructure upgrades to the circa-1960’s building were also part of the project.
An approximately 10,000 square-foot 3-story addition containing new public and social spaces for the residents and their visitors to enjoy was also included. A new main entrance (which now faces the rest of the St. Paul Seminary Campus), living room, dining room, meeting and fitness rooms, and a game room are now open to all residents. Although retired, most residents continue to be active in their ministry. The new spaces will facilitate both private and semi-private meetings between the residents and their visitors.
