Tilt-up Construction for a Church: Designing award-winning dramatic features

This award-winning church in Rocklin, California possesses dramatic yet economical exterior characteristics including a vaulted entry, entry canopies, stepped roof, and a barreled roof treatment.  DCI provided structural design for this unique structure. The first phase included a large, column-free sanctuary space, offices, classrooms, meeting areas, and other support space. 

Project Highlights

  • Completed design for a large, column-free sanctuary space, offices, classrooms, meeting areas, and other support space.
  • The building uses tilt-up concrete exterior and sanctuary walls with long-span steel joist roof framing with a metal deck roof.
  • The central dramatic feature of the church is a cross tower formed from three rectangular enclosures, the highest of which is 52’ above grade.
  • Sanctuary features include sloped seating with a raised stage, acoustical enhancements, an audio/visual control room, and catwalks to provide access to lighting and other accessories.
  • Second floor framing uses concrete on metal deck slabs on steel framing. 
  • Framing design provides for future expansion to accommodate additional areas of second floor framing.
