Advent Lutheran Church
Mill Creek, Washington
This 4,050 sf octagonal sanctuary addition to an existing church was designed with a sloped slab on grade to provide clear visibility of the pulpit area from all seats. The structure featured steel columns with wood framing, masonry walls and a 30' vaulted ceiling. The unique shape of the space necessitated individual cut-to-fit calculations for each angle in the exposed beams as they were being placed. We also built a 2,600 sf classroom building for the facility. Through proactive weekly owner's meetings we were able to recoup all weather-related delay expenses and value-engineering accounted for an additional $55,000 in costs we were able to return to the church.
"The Deacon team was wonderful to work with and attentive to many details. We enjoy our newly constructed buildings. However, we miss seeing the team and working with them on a daily basis. They could not have been more professional."
