Light Commercial Project of the Year – Astro Buildings in Omaha, Neb.
Sanctuary was erected using post-frame construction methods for the most economical and efficient building of its size. The interior features wall and ceiling panels by Fabral and LP products. Thick fiberglass batt insulation makes the building more energy-efficient than other kinds of buildings.
An adjacent wing with what may include a kitchenette and bathroom facilities will feature a vaulted ceiling using scissor trusses. That part of the building was erected on a thickened-edge slab using Sturdi-Wall drill-set brackets by Perma-Column, and Perma-Column pre-cast concrete piers were used for the exterior porch post bases.
