The vision of Blessed Theresa of Calcutta (BTOC) church as it sits on the rolling hills of Limerick, is one that attracts the interest of all who pass by. BTOC is a masterpiece of ecclesiastical art that is taken from numerous surrounding churches which have closed and been consolidated into one new, beautiful house of worship. This is the 59th church/place of worship that B&W has completed in their 35 years in business. This architecturally challenging structure is 20,000 square feet and reaches to 105 feet at the top of the cross. The total duration of the project took 17 months to complete. The plastering, aerial beams and column covers add a beautiful touch to this state of the art Catholic Cathedral. It is definitely worth a trip out to visit and witness the fine craftsmanship and detail put into this project.
Benner & White’s key players on this project included job foreman Bob Engler, asst. field manager John Engler, estimator/project manager James Brown and finishing superintendent Darrel Asbury. Together we have worked diligently with General Contractor Dolan Construction, Owner’s Representative Tom Lane, Pastor Reverend Paul Brandt, and the Architect the Knabb Partnership to ensure that the vision of BTOC was properly executed with high quality service and attention to detail. Tom Lane had the following to say, “Due to the expertise and attention to detail regarding Bob Engler, James Brown, Darrel Asbury and all associated B&W craftworkers, BTOC was completed on time, looks magnificent and is one of the projects I’m most proud of being a part of. Their expertise and first class workmanship were paramount in execution and completion of this project. I would absolutely recommend them in the future and look forward to working with them again very soon. The entire team of Benner & White Construction did an outstanding job on the Blessed Theresa of Calcutta project. It is a privilege to work with such reputable, first rate companies.”
B&W scope of work included general carpentry, metal studs, drywall, acoustical ceilings, plastering, beam shapes, column covers, and spires.
