Sisters of St. John the Divine Convent and Guest House


Designed by Montgomery Sisam Architects

Designed to replace an existing facility, this new convent is situated on a unique site at the north edge of the city. The project included a new building (including residences, offices, kitchen, dining hall, chapel, and refectory) and an upgrade to an existing L-shaped Guest House.

S + A Services Included:


The heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) design is comprised of stand-alone rooftop units with a central heating water plant. Resident areas are provided with roof-mounted, air-handling units providing make-up air for ventilation and resident washroom exhaust. These rooftop units provide tempered 100% outdoor air and are complete with an enthalpy wheel to reclaim or reject heat to/from washroom exhaust. Building heat is generated by two gas-fired boilers and delivered to the space through radiant ceiling panels.
