Redlands Seventh-day Adventist Church Renovation
(# 54)
Images Description Credits
Completion 1 / 2011
Specific Use of Building Worship
Project Location Redlands, CA
The 60 year old church in the historic downtown of Redlands had originally been designed in the Mission Revival style.  Over the years additions and remodels had compromised the original design.  A second story had been added to the classroom wing as well as a transept to the sanctuary, some so poorly constructed that it needed to be demolished. 
The client’s objectives were:
1.    Maximize seating capacity through building addition
2.    Relocate offices
3.    Provide a less traditional seating arrangement (i.e. circular)
4.    Meet current codes
5.    Sustainable, energy efficient design
6.    Mission Revival style

Termite infestation discovered after the finishes were removed required that approximately half of the structure be replaced, the other half gutted.

Sustainable features include:
•    R 19 batt insulation plus 2 inch Exterior Insulation Finish System (EIFS)
•    R30 roof insulation
•    High efficiency HVAC
•    Dual-glazed, low E, aluminum clad wood windows
