Our Lady of Mercy Mausoleum – Doral, Florida

Our Lady of Mercy Mausoleum


The Archdiocese of Miami contracted JWR Construction Services based on our partnering on previous projects to design/engineer and construct a new energy efficient, impact resistant clearstory and skylights to replace existing systems that leaked and allowed only minimum natural lighting. We also were tasked with the demolition of existing systems and the installation of new ones with zero impact to visitors and scheduled events.

JWR Construction Services, in conjunction with Gallo Herbert Architects designed a clearstory system incorporating a standing seam roof and impact resistant glazing to allow for maximum natural day lighting for the mausoleum. New impact resistant skylights were designed and installed to further enhance the brightness of the mausoleum. Additionally, JWR Construction Services greatly enhanced the existing lighting with high efficiency fixtures, more than doubling the light levels without adding circuits.

JWR Construction Services completed the project on time and under budget which allowed for additional repair work at no additional cost to Catholic Cemeteries. JWR Construction Services developed a system that allowed for the unimpeded use of the facility while under construction.
