St. John Cantius Church in Chicago

Coffered Ceiling with chandelier

We have been working with St. John Cantius Church in downtown Chicago for several years on various projects.  Last year we finished remodeling the Refectory. We installed an Oak Coffered Ceiling, specialty wall coverings and cabinetry. Our suspended, coffered ceiling system enabled us to cover up old but necessary piping, while maximizing the ceiling height in the rest of the room. We also incorporated old heat registers into the woodwork, so they are hidden but accessible.
