9th Street Church of the Brethren
When this church needed to make ADA-considerate improvements, we went through several iterations to decide where to put this elevator and wheelchair-accessible entrance. In the end, it could only go in one place without exceeding the client's budget - ultimately, the elevator went into an old mop closet. The church was built in 1937 and is a combination of concrete, brick and stone throughout, so finding ways to install plumbing, electrical and a hoistway weren't exactly easy.
We also installed a lift to help church attendants make their way to the new ADA bathroom that we constructed in the lower level of the church. Old churches and buildings like this really stretch the imagination when it comes to upgrades, especially when you're trying to preserve wonderful architecture. But, this is TBS Construction and we will find a way to achieve your goal.
