Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart Catholic Church
Omaha, NE
Completion date
November 2009

Historic Sacred Heart Catholic Church in North Omaha was rededicated by Archbishop George Lucas after working with RDG Planning & Design for several years on plans for the renovation. 

Sacred Heart, almost 110 years old, was in great need of repair -- the original slate roofing had never been replaced, there had been electrical wiring fires, the stained glass was declared dangerous, and plaster was falling from the ceiling. RDG acted as the coordinating professional during the restoration. Fourteen separate scopes of work were negotiated, contracted and managed for the parish and diocese by the design team. The total restoration took about eleven months, and involved closing the church for approximately five months.
