The iconic Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrement, also known as the Basilica, was an extremely difficult, high profile project.
Jurgens Demolition worked closely with the principal contractor, Naylor Love Construction, to protect the historical and emotional significance of the site and its belongings.
The dome's timber structure was painstakingly removed by traditional cut and crane method with the use of two large cranes by Naylor Love. Jurgens provided two high reach excavators to deconstruct the stone and concrete structure. During this phase of the project items such as the organ, stained glass windows and highly detailed stone work were reclaimed as requested by the client.
