Atrium Takes Shape

Significant progress was made in the atrium area this week as structural steel framing was started in the western side of the building.  Shape of the atrium including the second floor quiet space at the top of the stairs an be clearly seen.

While strong and secure, the steel structure of the church is also simple, solid and well thought out.  This design was significantly less expensive than previous plans and a major reason we were able to proceed with the project.

Additional beams and trusses will be installed next week.  The pictures below were taken as work wrapped up for the week earlier today.
