The Coral Baptist Church expansion features a 2,000-seat sanctuary with stadium style seating, early childhood learning rooms, a chapel and church administration offices. The church places a major focus on audio visual equipment, as well as lighting and camera coordination, and produces their message in a theatrical production setting.
The Tilt-Up portions of the project include several radiused panels that step in and out to create the lobby area that followed the contour of the main sanctuary. Tilt-Up was also used to create the stair-stepped bearing elements for the support of the stadium style seating in the sanctuary, while creating corridors from the main lobby and hallways into the theatre.
Full height load bearing Tilt-Up panels enclosed the full sanctuary area while utilizing large spandrel panel sections spanning over the soundstage, one of which is 65 feet, 2 inches wide weighing in excess of 150,000 pounds. All of the Tilt-Up panels support the roof structure of clear span truss girders at elevations of 52-plus feet. In addition, spandrel panel sections were used to accommodate the many roof elevation transitions that help create architectural separation of the building's support structures from the main sanctuary.
