Atonement Lutheran Church

Atonement Lutheran Church construction project was a 16,420 SF single level facility with a 2nd floor mechanical mezzanine. Work included complete site work grading, pavement, site concrete and all utilities and tie-ins to city services. The structure consisted of a typical spread footing and foundation wall construction with a 4” slab on grade.

This facility included CMU and metal stud framed interior and exterior walls. The exterior finish was masonry veneer and EIFS (Exterior insulation finish system). The roof structure consisted of structural steel and bar joists and deck. The roofs were asphalt shingles on the sanctuary and membrane roofing on the lower roof sections over the offices and gathering area.

The interior of the building consisted of the sanctuary, commercial kitchen, restrooms, offices and classrooms. Interior finishes included Acoustical ceilings, various types of flooring, paint, cabinets and millwork.

Fisher Construction worked hand in hand with the owner to help minimize costs by allowing the owner to complete some areas of work with their own forces. At the end of the project the relationship was a great success with a facility that was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Despite having to perform much of the initial construction under winter conditions, Fisher delivered the building on time within their promised time line. Our biweekly construction meetings were construction with both Shane and chuck going out of their way to explain construction options we might consider and to recommend what they believed to be the best options for Atonement.

On Budget Completion – Fisher worked closely with Atonement and our Architects from initial design to prepare accurate cost estimates for the work performed. Fisher worked closely with us and with their subcontractors to provide a significant list of value engineered items that reduced costs significantly on our project.
