First Baptist Church of Amherst

Addition to Lower Level

While I have designed numerous projects in the state, this was my first project as a registered architect in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, adding approximately 2,300 sq. ft. to an existing Type 2C building. Although small in scope, the addition required compliance with most requirements of new construction, and required a steel moment frame structure, compliance with the new Chapter 13 energy conservation and Chapter 9 fire-protection regulations. The addition housed the new Youth Room and flex space for the growing ministries of First Baptist.

Architectural services were provided pro bono.
