Churches

St. Vincent de Paul Church

This one-story church and tower was constructed of concrete tilt up panels and glulam beam trusses and purlins. The unique structural aspects of the building are the 48 feet tall tower wall panels, and the glulam beam trusses, spanning 62 feet at the main roof, comprised of Alaskan Yellow Cedar.
 

Construction began in November 2000 and was completed sixteen months later in March 2002. This work received the Excellence in Structural Engineering Award for 2002.
