Sacred Heart Catholic Church
The Diocese of Las Vegas selected The Korte Company to construct the new Sacred Heart Catholic Church in the city of Ely, Nevada. The 11,000 square foot facility provides the growing parish with a new place of worship. The 45 ft. bell tower houses the original bell from the previous church. At the front of the sanctuary is the elevated altar area and 8,000 lb. marble altar which sits in front of an exquisite custom made mosaic created in Italy and installed by Italian craftsmen. An under-slab duct system and heat pumps tied into city water takes into consideration the city’s harsh winter climate and was designed to provide efficiency and save the parish on utility costs.
