About the Project

A much-needed Ministry Building is the first of a two-phase development to bring a new face to the campus-based congregation. The new, ground up 67,000 SF structure includes three interior levels and a fourth level with roof terrace along the sloping grade of Campus Street. The facility will house a new fellowship hall, rotunda, multipurpose room, youth room, 11 classrooms of varying size, video recording studio, a commercial kitchen, two additional prep kitchens, café area, and other various supporting areas.

As part of the Mechanical and Plumbing design performed by Design West Engineering, the facility ties into the chilled water and high pressure steam systems coming from the existing Central Plant that serves the original hospital facility and multiple other buildings on the site. A new steam to hot water heat exchanger was provided to convert the plant high pressure steam to heating hot water that serves the 2 and 4-pipe fan coils, 2-pipe VAV boxes and 2 and 4-pipe air handlers. Because of the buildings connection to the OSHPD regulated Central Plant utilities, a separate permit through OSHPD was required for the utility tunnel connections in addition to the standard city building permits.
