St. Vigilius Church

Cultural & Religious

Built in 1914 and known as “The Venice of New York”, St. Virgilius Roman Catholic Church has been on the island of Broad Channel the only inhabited island in Jamaica Bay serving the community for more than 100 years.

CCCNYC representing FEMA Disaster Assistance in response to Hurricane Sandy collaborating with an extensive team of design and construction professionals engaged in new construction and repairs to St. Virgilius Church.

CCCNYC developed the project budget and provided cost estimates to ensure project bidding reflected current industry costs.
New construction requires an elaborate pile and concrete pile cap and grade beam system to address the high ground water table. The complexities of poor sub-surface conditions and a high-water table requires a collaborative team approach to address and successfully work through a myriad of challenges and obstacles.
