Charismatic Church: Iglesia Carismatica Espiritu de Hermandad
Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY
The Charismatic Church was looking to upgrade to their infrastructure, technology, class rooms and overall seating capacity in this 10,000sf building in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Greenbuild Construction Group was selected as the General Contractor to complete this task.
The upgrades in the main sanctuary included the addition of a new structural steel mezzanine which added more seating for parishioners, plus a new state of the art sound booth, lighting control station and back of house storage areas.
In addition, the main stage was extended and upgraded to accommodate the new sound and lighting equipment. All new finishes upgrades to the building envelope were included in the overall project. The new mezzanine now connects the main sanctuary to the adjacent building where the church maintains office space and classrooms for the younger parishioners.
As part of the first phase of this multi phased project, Greenbuild also completely renovated this 2nd floor office space including a new layout, new lighting/ power, HVAC, communication wiring and overall finishes.
One of the more difficult aspects of this project was the logistics of executing the work while the facility was still in use. Strategic timing/ staging and coordination with the facility allowed Greenbuild to complete the project and maintain the day to day functions of the church. In addition to the logistics, Greenbuild was able to identify critical field conditions/ concerns early in the shop drawing stage and worked closely with the design team to re-engineer the structure and make it work within the given building parameters.
The project was a complete success and the church’s congregation is now happily enjoying their expanded and upgraded facility.
We are extremely grateful to greenbuild construction for all of their hard work and dedication required to complete the upgrades to our facility. Greenbuild was attentive to the needs of the church and worked closely with the staff to maintain services during the renovations.
