Desert Springs Methodist Church
Las Vegas, Nevada
This 4,666 SF expansion added six classrooms, a nursery, and other facilities to an existing church building in Las Vegas. The construction included a wood roof and masonry and light frame shear walls. This expansion was constructed in a wedge-shaped area between two oddly shaped existing buildings, and as such, required creative solutions to keep the roof framing construct-able over a floor plan with few right angles. KEG justified the existing walls and foundations without significant modification and tied the adjoining structures together soundly.
