Baltimore Basilica

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was constructed in the early 1800's under the direction of Benjamin Henry Latrobe.  A major renovation had recently been completed when the 2011 Mineral, Virginia earthquake caused significant damage to finishes and the heavy masonry structure.

Working as a project manager for Keast & Hood, Craig Swift led a design team to provide structural and architectural repairs to the historic building, carefully coordinated with the contractor team to allow continued operations on weekends (including masses and weddings).  The project won Baltimore Heritage's 2013 Restoration and Rehabilitation Award.
