FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH

Resulting from concerns arising out of a structural engineering study of their 1911 building, the First Baptist Church commissioned our firm to carry out a further major study of their existing building and future facility requirements.

The results of this study provided greater reason for concern regarding the condition of the building fabric, mechanical and electrical systems and the general safety of the building occupants. Further, the results of research related to options of accommodation, and the benefits and costs of alternatives, resulted in a clear decision that the Church would stay at its original location, within a completely rehabilitated building.

This decision ensured the preservation of one of Regina's finest "Greek Revival" styled buildings and will help preserve the important heritage streetscape that bounds Victoria Park to the south.

The renovation work was undertaken to ensure at least 50 years of reliable building performance and included: replacement of main structural elements of the roof and supports, complete re-planning of basement to accommodate a flexible program of requirements, new sanctuary ceiling and dome, new choir and organ area/facades, renovated administrative area, modified main entrance and stair wells, new windows and restoration of original stained glass, new doors and frames, new interiors and finishes, replacement of mechanical and electrical systems and a complete exterior restoration and cleaning. The building now complies with current building and fire codes.
