Cathedral Of The Blessed Sacrament

Sacramento, CA

From August 2003 until November 2005, Sacramento’s Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament closed for extensive historic restoration and redesign, attempting to unify the church’s décor from previous repairs and renovations.

Historic research and a decorative finishes investigation provided the basis for a new decorative scheme. We worked with the architect to develop building specifications, maquettes, and ornamental plaster finishes for the newly reconstructed dome, and all public spaces.

Inside the Cathedral, lost or overpainted decorative elements were restored based on the historical reference of decoration available. The new decorative scheme and mural program was based on the Cathedral’s 1890 campaign. Historic plasterwork was stabilized and conserved were possible and new decorative plaster elements and murals designed, fabricated and implemented. Our conservators treated the historic statuary and plaster craftsmen, finishing experts, and painters completed the decorative painting of the entire Cathedral interior.

EverGreene also designed and constructed the steeple access, gilded five crosses, executed minor sheet metal and roofing repairs, and painted the exteriors of all steeples and the cathedral’s dome.
