The Order of Saint Augustine, Villanova, PA

Augustinian Burial Plot Renovations, Calvary Cemetery, West Conshohocken, PA – This project involved the renovation of an existing section of approximately 150 flat marker graves and foundations to correct uneven and misaligned gravestones and provided section plans for future expansion of burial plots within the section.

CF Gorski surveyed, designed and managed the construction of a new strip foundations and reinstallation of monuments for the existing and future burial plots in the section. The strip foundation replaced individual foundations and was provided in each range across all existing and future lots; they were buried below grade and designed to closely follow the steep topography in this section and to provide uniformity of all monuments. As new burials take place, newly placed corner markers can easily be found to properly locate the burial plot, the topsoil can easily be uncovered and a new monument set on the monolithic foundation.

New strip foundations and reinstalled flat markers. Re-grading also removed the illusion of the leaning shrine which was always level.
