Maryvale Preparatory School was founded when the sisters of Notre Dame purchased a 45,000 square foot replica of an English Castle and the surrounding grounds. The granite stone castle was built in the early 1900’s as a private residence and remained so until it was purchased by the school in the 1940’s.

The castle building is the cornerstone of the Maryvale campus. Therefore, when the electrical, plumbing and heating systems began to fail, the trustees realized corrective action was urgent.

Constantine was brought on board to help Maryvale through the process of improving the infrastructure of this important building. Constantine assisted with the selection of the architect and engineers for the project. Once the design was complete, we solicited various sub-contractor bids and made recommendations as to who could best complete this project.

The final project consisted of a complete new heating and central air conditioning systems, new domestic water supply piping and new waste water piping, new electrical service and wiring, new data and communications wiring and a complete sprinkler system for fire protection of this valuable asset. All of the work had to be completed while the facility maintained weekend use as a catering facility.

It was important to the trustees that the historic fabric of the Castle be maintained while making changes and improvements. We accomplished our goal of updating a unique building while respecting its historic value.
