Key aims and challenges
A baptist church has existed in Whetstone for hundreds of years. The current building dates from 1909.
The church, which has a congregation of over 300 people, came up with ambitious plans to design, fund and build a brand new, purpose-built church building.
In 2013, the church completed the purchase of a plot of land. Architects were appointed to develop a contemporary design, featuring a worship area for 500 people and a baptistry, as well as flexible community space and amenities.
How did we do?
Danaher & Walsh took over the site in February 2017 and carried out all earthworks, drainage and ducting works for incoming utilities.
Foundations were then installed for the complex steel-framed building, including connection points for the steels.
In a second phases of works, internal sleeper walls and external cavity walls were constructed up to DPC level. Concrete block and beam flooring was installed across the footprint of the building.
