Christendom College has hired architect Pat Haggerty to be the project manager for the college’s new Christ the King Chapel project. Coming in with over 20 years of experience in the field, Haggerty will be responsible for ensuring that construction of the new chapel goes as smoothly as possible, helping to bring the most ambitious building project in the history of the college to fruition.
Since being hired, Haggerty has been hard at work on the chapel project, leading the initial construction phase of installing erosion and sediment control measures to prepare the chapel site. Once that is complete and final permits are approved, construction will begin in earnest on the chapel — an exciting prospect for Haggerty.
“This chapel project is meaningful to me,” says Haggerty. “It is an honor to be able to serve God and the college by assisting in getting this amazing building constructed.”
Haggerty attended Virginia Military Academy and Christendom College (‘91-‘93), and graduated with his B.S. in architecture from the Catholic University of America, earning his Master’s from CUA as well. Since earning his degrees, Haggerty has been a part of a number of very sophisticated projects in Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland, with extensive design and management experience for buildings of all kinds.
In his new role, Haggerty is working closely with vice president for operations Mike Foeckler, college president Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, and the entire executive council of Christendom. The Christ the King Chapel project is complex, and unlike any building project previously undertaken by the college. Having a person with Haggerty’s experience is crucial to the project’s success, making the new Christ the King Chapel that much closer to reality as a result.
