Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart, dedicated in 1893, is one of the campus’s iconic structures. The brick masonry building, with a below-grade crypt and program space, suffered from water infiltration and experienced structural damage caused by foundation settlement. As part of a comprehensive rehabilitation effort, SGH investigated leakage and designed below-grade waterproofing repairs.
