Through All Additions and Renovations, Services Continued Every Weekend
Renovation of existing facility. Addition to existing facility. Addition of entrance canopy.
• The new addition was masked into the original building design, so that the casual observer can’t tell there has been an addition.
• On the initial walk through (before Tecton was hired), we spotted and corrected a chronic HVAC problem that had vexed the congregation for decades.
• Tecton imported a specialty masonry product that has superior fire rating, insulation and acoustic characteristics for use in the Temple Israel project. This product, called AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete), is a precast masonry product which is used in wall, floor, and roof system construction. It’s well-known in Europe but new to America. Tecton pioneered it’s use in this area.
• New design and framing roof details also solved original design and construction problems which allowed roof leaks and water penetration. This was accomplished by innovative structural framing details that did NOT require full remodel of existing roof system and saved tens of thousands of dollars.
