LIVING HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH RENOVATION

In the spring of 2011, Living Hope Baptist Church completed another renovation and expansion to their existing campus which included acquiring the adjacent Holy Spirit Catholic Church campus and adding additional worship, educational, and gymnasium space.  


DDS ENGINEERING, PLLC provided surveying, civil and geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing, special inspection, and landscape architecture services during the project.  


The project incorporated a renovation plan of all the existing parking areas and the addition of a new parking lot of approximately 350 spaces to accommodate the growing congregation.  These improvements aided the accessibility to the church to assist the elderly members.  The drainage system was enlarged and improved to be in compliance with the new City of Bowling Green Storm Water Quality and Quantity Ordinance.  This phase of the project included an elaborate landscaping and irrigation system design for the beautification of the property and neighborhood.  


DDS’ geotechnical engineering department provided site development and foundation recommendations.  The proposed heavy structural loads and irregular rock depths necessitated the use of rock supported drilled shaft foundations.

 

The new facility foundation system consists of 74 rock supported drilled shafts with reinforced concrete grade beams and slab on grade floor.  The walls are comprised of reinforced structural masonry with a brick veneer.  


During construction of all the structural components for the facility, DDS construction materials testing and special inspection staff worked closely with the construction manager and structural engineer to perform the code required materials testing and special inspections.
