While working on Our Lady Star of the Sea's new school, we were contracted to perform repairs to the existing gymnasium when a number of leaks were caused by the notorious 1996 winter ice storm. Working with Rice Fergus, it was decided that instead of merely patching the roof, it would serve the parish better to create a new pitched roof over the existing flat roof at the same cost. This made for an attractive addition which helped to visually tie in the old gymnasium with the new school. Construction was accomplished simultaneously with the new school and was completed on time and under budget.
