Expansion Completed at Upper West Side Cathedral School

JRM Construction Management has completed the expansion of the Cathedral School of St. John the Divine in Morningside Heights. The JRM team, led by project director Charles Ciccarelli, delivered a multi-level expansion of more than 12,000 square feet on the south end of the existing school building.

The addition includes a basement for mechanical equipment and storage space, a terrace with a new 2,700-square-foot library, and media center and a new ground floor featuring a new admissions suite, along with dining, meeting and assembly space.

“To make our plans a reality, JRM was able to accommodate the school’s schedule and work, delivering a safe environment within an occupied space,” said the Cathedral School’s Peter Maas.

JRM implemented a multi-phased approach, and during construction installed temporary walls and partitions to ensure the safety of students and school personnel.
