Berchmans Construction

By the time you receive this magazine, the current wave of Berchmans Hall construction should be completed.

Over the past several months, Berchmans has undergone an intensive renovation to transform the historic building into the kind of first-class home first-class health care programs deserve.

Among the key components of the renovation: removing the ceiling between the third and fourth floors on the wings of the building to make room for spacious lecture halls. 

First and second floors house the DPT program, with the USM nursing program set to move in to the third floor at a later date. The fourth floor will be finished as part of a later construction project.

Mark Gieseman, USM’s facilities director, called the project the most daunting undertaken on campus since the construction of McGilley Field House.

“This was renovating a building that was still in use,” Gieseman said. “McGilley is bigger in terms of square footage, but this was more complicated than McGilley.”
