Portfolio — Knightdale United Methodist Church
Located in Knightdale, NC, Knightdale United Methodist Church’s design dictated a large, open sanctuary. To accomplish this goal, engineers at Fluhrer Reed designed a space truss to clear-span the length of the sanctuary. Coordination between the engineers and the architect was imperative to delicately integrate the space truss with the sloping steel bar joists that constructed the other parts of the roof. Using a combination of steel braced frames and cold formed metal wall panels with rod bracing for the lateral system of the project also helped achieve the aesthetic goals of the church.
