St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

Catholic Church

Wichita, KS

The parish was running out of room for their increasing number of parishioners and by 1996 they began working with us to plan for their expansion. We started working with the parish on a long-range Master Plan that, when completed, encompassed five different stages of improvements while minimizing the amount of rework from one phase to the other. Working with the parish, we were able to develop a comprehensive Master Plan for the next 20 years.

Eleven new classrooms, a computer lab, a new cafeteria kitchen and new school entry were completed as the first phase of the project. The second phase involved a 1,300-seat sanctuary with accessory spaces, a new gathering area, two Adult Education classrooms and a daily chapel. Three years later, Alloy started design on a new gymnasium with basement. The basement includes a FEMA shelter room, music classroom and storage. The gymnasium features a walking track above. The Church and school administrative offices were remodeled and added to the Church. The most recent addition to the Parish is a new bell tower.
