The project is a 5,800 square foot addition to an existing church. It is one-story with multiple sloping roofs, and was constructed with structural steel and metal deck. The addition extended an existing 13-0" deep truss spanning 45-0", to an 80-0" long truss by removing an existing steel column and splicing the top and bottom chords. The extended truss supports most of the roof over the addition, and is exposed to the exterior through large windows. New 2-6" deep sloping trusses were also added to match the existing trusses. The roof overhang was formed with sloped beams, which were tapered as they penetrated the glass curtain wall.
