This 135,000-square foot jewelry manufacturing plant built in the 1960s was repurposed. Phase 1 consisted of renovating more than 40,000 square feet. It is now home to a 1,000-seat auditorium, a themed children's church, nursery rooms, and a large gathering area with an adjacent café.

Solomon Awards Building Design Project - Other Religious Building or Use

The jewelry manufacture facility was built in the ‘60s. This three-story facility is 135,000 square feet. The foot print was 40,000 square feet. The church continued to add to the project during construction to include the sanctuary, offices, video room, café, café lounge, child care facility, youth gathering area and kids play room.

We had to restructure the exterior adding another drive exit per the city due to visibility. The facility was not designed to be a church. Cutting out the second floor and demoing a two story sanctuary was not an easy task. We had to add new footings, an 80-foot beam to support the structure, added beams and two story columns all around the exterior walls, plus a large column and beam to support the roof.

When we started the demolition, we found the structure was made of wood and drywall with metal beams sitting on wood pallets. This facility was more than 50 years old, to where patching and polishing the concrete floors was a challenge. The electric room is large enough to power the entire city. 6 inch conduct was also added. The facility was heated and cooled by an old boiler system 24 to be exact. We had to replace all the HVAC, to bring it up to date. The city was easy to work with. A church of this size was new for the city. The town is very conservative and small.
