Basilica of St. Josaphat
The Basilica of St. Josaphat is a landmark and historic structure located in Milwaukee’s Lincoln Village neighborhood. Serving the community for over 117-years, the ornate building has undergone several major interior and exterior restorations within the last 25 years. This includes replacement of the dome structure and the addition of air conditioning. In 2018, exterior improvements were needed and the Basilica Foundation engaged FVM to serve as their Owner’s Representative for Design Assistance, Procurement Administration and Construction Administration. The scope of the project included copper roof and associated storm water drainage repairs, masonry restoration/tuck pointing, window replacements, carpentry and painting. Due to the unique architecture of the building and it being located on a dense urban site, a series of custom scaffolds and aerial boom lifts were required to implement the work.
