Community Christian Church New Children's Building

This project is a collection of different shaped panels. One of the main features is a fifty five foot four inch spandrel panel/lid supported by two L shaped panels. Another feature is the sculptural look of the main staircase, as well as the secondary staircase. This building showcases the flexibility of the tilt-up system and shows the architects that they can be creative when using tilt-up. Structural engineering and lifting engineering were the most challenging due to the shape of the panels and the shape of building itself.
