Our project team worked with the church’s volunteer committee to come up with the design of their new home of worship that suited the congregation. The unique glass treatments evoke a traditional feel to the sanctuary, while affording the church an efficient building that incorporates the cost-savings of tilt-up construction as well as savings from the installed solar panels to allow for an energy buy-back by NS Power. The sanctuary accommodates nearly 262 parishioners and the kitchen, generous foyer and meeting rooms allow the church to maximize programming in every space.
