Project summary provided by submitting company.
The River Pointe Church Children's Building is a 34,000-square-foot building that was built using tilt-up panels and structural steel. Arch-Con® worked hand-in-hand with the architect, Studio Red Architects, to recommend tilt-wall as an application for this project. The recommendation was given for three reasons: it's in-line with the church's core values to be good stewards of their money, allows for a modern design that matches the rest of the buildings on the church's campus, and it gives a faster turnaround time. Additionally, the money the church saved on the building was used to add extra, unique features and elements to the building and around the building. The children’s building boasts unique features such as cedar siding, composite metal panels and rain screen elements to make the space a fun, inviting and warm environment for kids. Other substantial features of the project include a Grand Plaza, indoor and outdoor worship spaces for kindergarten through third grade along with classrooms and recreational spaces; a unique, few-of-a-kind 56-foot-tall climbing structure that teaches kids to problem solve and communicate, an outdoor community area with a 33,000-square-foot pavilion that Arch-Con completed at the same time as the building, and a large outdoor balcony that functions both as a lounge area and classroom/worship space. The Arch-Con team completed the project on time and within budget. We received notice to proceed on May 5, 2017, and received certificate of substantial completion on May 7, 2018. The project was completed using the initial 8-million-dollar budget. Our long-standing relationship with River Pointe Church allowed for good communication and trust throughout the course of the project. The children's building is one of three projects we have done for them, and they are always satisfied with the results. We anticipate receiving more projects from the church in the future.
This project was a 2019 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award winner.
