Billy Roy, Project Manager and Civil Engineer from Knowles Industrial, came to Holy Family Church to assess the buttresses and masonry restoration, making nine trips over 18 months. Other company members visited the church, including Senior Vice President Tim Rich, President of Business Development Andrew Lawson, and President of Operations Travis Whitehead.
Knowles Industrial provided the Parish of the Resurrection of the Lord with numerous references from projects completed in the past. The references gave excellent reviews. The company was highly recommended. The decision was made to begin this urgent repair that holds up the walls and roof of this gorgeous place of worship.
The work began at Holy Family Church on February 11, 2020. It was completed nine weeks later, on April 17. The buttresses were heated and kept at 50°F during the entire project to help with the mortar’s curing.
The masons for Knowles Industrial were all polite and accommodating during the whole project. The work site was left cleaner than they found it. The company included an allowance to repair the damage to the lawn from the heavy equipment used to mobilize the materials. Many thanks to those who helped keep this majestic church standing tall.
