Calvary Chapel, Corvallis, Ore.

This nearly 19,000-square-foot (1,765-m2) project included four buildings, with consideration given to the location of the church sanctuary and fellowship hall in order to minimize the impact on the surrounding natural topography.


A pre-engineered metal building was chosen due to the flexibility to incorporate the original design, using large clearspans, canopies, purlin extensions, and special roof loading for sound and lighting equipment.


The project used Metallic Building’s Double-Lok standing-seam roof system with a Signature 300 Kynar paint finish by Arkema Inc.


Completed in October 2007, the design utilized wide roof overhangs to maximize building shade and an energy saver roof insulation system with a high R-value to minimize energy costs.
