To better serve the church’s needs, a 40,000-squarefoot addition was built at Burke Community Church’s campus. The addition includes an 1,100-seat sanctuary, narthex, classrooms, offices and related ministry spaces.

The former worship center space was in a gymnasium/ multipurpose area, which was overflowing with services spaces, and was inefficient with regard to limited site lines and entrance choke points. The new facility solves these problems and provides for current and future needs of the congregation.

To meet the church’s budget, a pre-engineered metal building was selected for the superstructure of the addition including a partial second floor.

A standing seam roof system with

Bay Insulation Systems Inc.’s Skyliner insulation system was used on the narthex and sanctuary. The wall system incorporated EIFS, brick and, at the rear and side elevations, metal wall panels.

MTD Erectors Inc. erected American Buildings Co.’s metal building system and installed American Buildings’ 24-gauge Loc Seam 360 roof panels in Dark Bronze. MTD Erectors also installed American Buildings’ 26-gauge Architectural III wall panels in Warm White.
