St. Patrick's Catholic Church
Telluride, CO
Built in 1896, the Church required current additional space. Since the Church is placed on the National Historic Register, it could not expand its height, width or length. The only solution was to increase its depth. BLH, INC. was retained as the structural engineer and a plan was developed to hydraulically raise the entire existing Church, without removing tall stained-glass windows, to excavate and construct a full basement space beneath and later lower the entire Church onto its new underground basement.
