Thomas Road Baptist Church

Coleman-Glass Construction Co.

Thomas Road Baptist church’s Fellowship Hall is tucked into the space between the Main Street, Pate Chapel and the Great Hall. This 16,500 square foot addition provides a new practice and recording space for the choir on the second floor; and allows for large gatherings on the main floor. Structural design for this building was particularly challenging because no existing spaces could be disturbed or prevented from being used during construction. Working with local contractor Coleman-Glass Construction, we were able to develop a plan that would accomplish both requirements. The result is a steel framed structure that cantilevers over the existing great hall. Large 36 inch deep beams were used to carry the floor over the existing space and eight foot deep trusses were required to support the roof.
