St. Thomas More Church - Family Life & Education Center Bethel Park, Pennsylvania
Structural design for a new 73,000 square foot, three-story mixed used facility built into the adjacent hillside of the existing church. The difficult site conditions required a large percentage of the floors to be constructed above crawl spaces. A mix of shallow-spread footings and caissons and grade beams were used for the foundations. Minor wall modifications were made to tie the new Family Life center into the existing church building.
