Thinking about modular construction for your new church or multipurpose facility? There are many considerations, it helps if you know some common boundaries and innovations on your way there.
Ceiling height has always been a concern with modular churches. You typically want at least 10' high ceilings in an open space. This creates transportation issues in some areas. New innovations allow for higher ceilings with telescoping roof systems or fold out systems.
Many of our church clients will leave out the ceiling system and have exposed beams to allow a higher finished ceiling height.
Another consideration has typically been posting or roof load support. Most meeting rooms need clear vision in the entire room. While it may cost a little more to get clearspan steel roof beams it is usually a worthwhile expense. Having a post is distracting & takes away from the flexibility of the room use. In the end your team has to compare overall budget and incorporate those decisions into the decision making process.
