JESUT HIGH SCHOOL MASTER PLAN | NEW ORLEANS, LA

PROJECT INFORMATION

COMPLETED: 2013

PROGRAM: FULL CAMPUS

CLIENT: JESUIT HIGH SCHOOL

Jesuit asked Mathes Brierre Architects to assess their existing facilities and develop a master plan that supported the long term plan for education, both on their existing campus and beyond, as their student body and athletic programs grew.
The process began in 1999 and implementation started shortly thereafter, beginning with the renovation of the Resource Center with a Technology Lab, new Student Commons Space and five new Science Labs. An addition to St. Ignatius Hall to include new stairs allowed the building to be converted to an  assembly use. A new drop off and entry were created, the chapel restored, maintenance work on campus included window replacements, HVAC upgrades, all while the campus continued to operate.
John Ryan Stadium was constructed to provide a permanent practice field, the gymnasium was renovated and we are in the midst of a phased classroom renovation and have recently upgraded the Science Lab.
Future work includes completion of the phased classroom standardization renovations, construction of a pedestrian bridge between the main campus and the Roussel Building, replacing windows in the Residential and Administration Buildings upgrading mechanical and electrical systems, replace aging roofs. Jesuit’s confidence in our firm is underscored by the body of work that they have entrusted to us, to not only preserve their existing campus but to adapt it to meet the ever changing needs of modern education.
