Church / Synagogue

    The Petra Church Student Life Center


    The Student Life Center at Petra Church, New Holland, PA, adds approximately 56,000 sq. ft. to the nondenominational church’s current footprint.  Attached to the existing building near the sanctuary, the two-story center accommodates the ministry’s growing number of children and youth in a large, flexible, and more secure space.

    Greenebaum combined a pre-engineered metal building with a conventionally framed second floor and long-span exposed deck on custom tube steel trusses to create a dramatic vaulted ceiling in the new entrance/lobby space. We partnered with Ames Construction, Larson Design Firm, and Cornerstone Design Architects to complete the approximately $6.5 million project.

    Horst Construction engaged Greenebaum Structures, P.C. for structural engineering designs for this 27,000 SF, $3.6 million building. The building included a pre-engineered metal building core and timber-framed sides. A separate 2,000 SF maintenance building contains a cistern for fire-protection water supply. Cornerstone Design Architects performed the architectural design.

    Donegal Presbyterian, Mount Joy, PA

    Tippetts/Weaver Architects designed this handsome addition to blend with the historic character and beautiful natural setting of the church. The new 3,500 SF public space includes both clerestory windows and a full-height curved window wall overlooking the landscaped grounds and Donegal Springs. The adjacent renovations included a new elevator for ADA access to the entire facility and opening up existing assembly space. Greenebaum Structures provided structural engineering and analysis. Caldwell, Heckles & Egan, Inc. crafted this $1.75 million project.

    Manheim Brethren in Christ Church, Manheim, PA

    The first of two additions for Manheim Brethren in Christ Church included a pre-engineered metal building housing a youth center addition. The second was a multi-purpose addition including a new sanctuary and new support spaces. Schillaci Architects provided architectural design, and Greenebaum Structures performed structural engineering for both projects. Speedwell Construction, Inc. built the youth building, and Caldwell, Heckles & Egan, Inc. built the second project.
