Who We Are
Catholic Construction Services, Inc. (CCSI) was established in 1997 by the Archdiocese of Atlanta to manage the design and construction of all parish and school Large Capital Projects as well as all real estate Acquisitions and Dispositions. CCSI’s role is to assist the parishes and schools in all phases of planning and execution of construction and large maintenance projects. Our Program Managers and Staff, who have a combined 46 years of Archdiocesan experience renovating and building facilities, are key to our success in meeting the growth and needs of our Catholic community over the last 20 years.
To be a highly supportive resource for Archdiocesan parish and school leadership as they endeavor to meet the growth and ever changing needs of their communities.
To assist the priests, principals, their staff and generous volunteers in maintaining and expanding their facilities as needed by providing professional program management for the successful planning and completion of Large Capital Projects and the acquisition and disposition of real estate.
How We Began
Exponential growth in the Catholic population in the early 1990’s prompted Archbishop John F. Donoghue to embark, in 1997, on the largest capital campaign in the history of the Archdiocese called “Building the Church of Tomorrow”. Through the enormous generosity of Georgia’s Catholics, the Archdiocese raised over $102 million dollars which helped build five new Catholic Schools and two Catholic university centers. The Archdiocese formed Catholic Construction Services, Inc. that same year to provide construction programming and management for the new schools and university centers as well as all new large capital projects undertaken by parishes and schools in the Archdiocese. Since that time, CCSI has been involved in the construction of over 500 building projects valued in excess of a half billion dollars and over 150 land acquisitions and sales.
