Crossroads Church Children’s Center
Grand Prairie, TX
Project Type: Drywall
General Contractor: Julian P. Barry General Contractors
The most difficult design feature was located on the exterior roof, the church steeple. Sitting on a ‘barrel’ roof, the steeple proved to be quite the challenge for scaffolding and framing crews. Inside, the shaftwall construction around the elevator to the barrel roof necessitated a custom platform with self retracting life lines because the location would not allow safe access from a lift. Also, the tree layout was done ‘freehand’ because there were no dimensions to work from, the request from the builder and architect was, “make them look as much like real trees as possible.” Winner of the 2016 ABC EIC Eagle Award for Interior Finish.
