This 100-year-old place of worship, with a traditional bell tower, stucco exterior, and solid brick buttresses, was badly damaged by a flood both on the main level and in the basement. We were commissioned by the Church Board to restore the entire building and design a new handicap-accessible ramp near the main entrance of the church. The basement level was underpinned and completely waterproofed. The building structure was analyzed in its entirety and reinforced. New sprinkler and fire alarm system were also added to upgrade the building to new Building and Fire Code requirements.
Project budget: $ 400,000
We were approached by our Client to convert an existing two-story building, including the basement, into a new church congregation facility inclusive of offices, library, reading rooms, children’s day care facilities, and kitchen and dining facilities. The entire space was structurally reinforced to comply with Building Code requirements for higher occupancy. In addition, long span beams were specified in order to produce a clear and column-free main worship area. We upgraded the entire building envelope and created a completely handicap-accessible building. New interior sprinkler system and mechanical equipment were also specified.
