This Phase V Auditorium and Narthex addition was part of a multiphase project on the church’s campus to serve the 3,500 member parish.  Our firm was involved with each Phase.  The balcony was supported on custom steel plate girders which cantilevered over the space below to minimize obstruction from support members.  The stage was outfitted with a full complement of accessories and catwalks to accommodate all levels of production.  Structural steel frames were employed to provide an economical solution to the building’s framing needs.

This project was featured in “Metal Architecture” magazine.
