COVID-19 Update: All ongoing projects remain active with precautions in place according to OSHA and CDC guidelines. Staff across our five offices are staying safe by working remotely or by wearing masks and practicing social distancing while working on-site.

The Korte Company worked hand in hand with St. Clare of Assisi and BCDM Architects to deliver a 9,400-square-foot expansion to their existing church. The much-needed expansion was designed to help better serve their growing parish and included new construction as well as a reconfiguration of existing space to accommodate the need for increased capacity.

In 2007, The Korte Company constructed the original 28,678-square-foot church for the parish, a concrete panel tilt-up construction project which received multiple awards from the Concrete Council, Con/Steel and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association.

The expansion project included two newly constructed wings that connected to the existing facility comprising of a 3,130-square-foot fellowship hall expansion and 6,270-square-foot office addition. The innovative design allowed the church building, parish offices and new meeting rooms to remain centralized and under a single roof.

To facilitate the expansion, selective demolition was required that included the careful removal of several existing concrete tilt-up panels. Exteriors of the newly constructed areas used identical masonry veneers to replicate the look of the existing church.
