project involved placing a prominent church building on a hill overlooking
the prestigious Lakeway area.
design consisted of three large naves with 60-foot high laminated
wood arches that prevented any ductwork or piping from being installed
overhead. The air was supplied from the side walls of the equipment
mezzanine at the rear of the church and from perimeter supplies
served by ductwork that dropped down from the mezzanine to under
slab, over to the perimeter, and up in a horizontal ledge duct system.
lighting was accomplished by routing the conduit up into slots on
the arches to short light tracks on the back side of the arches
and also via perimeter indirect lights illuminating the ceiling.
costs for this new sanctuary and offices project, without the land,
was approximately $3.5 million.Construction costs for the Family
Life Center will be approximately $2
