Churchill Meadows Christian Church is a worship facility with a 650-seat theatre-style auditorium that includes an expansive podium and backstage green room facilities. The remainder of the building houses staff offices, classrooms, a gymnasium, more than 8,000 SF of dedicated children’s space including a nursery, youth activity room, outdoor play area, and an 80-seat coffee shop. The owner’s intent was to create a space that functions as both a church and a community centre.
Some major construction features include a stained and polished concrete slab-on-grade, gypsum board curved acoustical diffusers, and a vertical displacement HVAC system in the sanctuary. An 865-gallon fibreglass walk-in baptistry pool was also installed on the sanctuary podium.
Maple Reinders was contracted to Design-Bid-Build a 35,000 SF curvilinear building, which included operable windows, a raised access floor with personal air control devices, flow-through air pattern circulation; as well as warm and inviting interior finishes to add to the level of human comfort for occupants.
