Holy Cross Church Gets New Permanent Modular Building

Modular Church Building

In December of 2009 Rose Offices built a 5,880 square feet permanent modular building for Holy Cross Church in Wilmington, North Carolina. The church needed sanctuary space for their congregation to have services along with additional classroom space and a “fellowship mall” area for church socials.

The building was one of the first that we constructed with eleven foot ceiling heights inside a modular building.

The result was stunningly beautiful.

You can see how this unique ceiling gives this large room a feeling of drama and openness that is not typical for modular construction. In the past, ceiling heights of eight or nine feet were standard because our modules were limited by height restrictions on the highway. Garry Cain at Rose worked with the factory to configure box beam ceilings of nine feet along the matelines, while soaring to eleven feet in the center of each module. The box beams allow for HVAC ductwork and roof supports to remain hidden behind the finished sheetrock while taking the center of each module to the maximum height in the center.

Specialty pendant lighting was added onsite along with wall-washer type uplighting that is concealed behind beautiful moldings. The ceiling and walls were finished onsite and painted with designer paint colors. The hardwood flooring was installed by a local contractor hired by the church. The matelines of each modular were hidden behind faux columns on the walls.

An interior window was added for the control room / sound booth to have open access but still be private.

Solid core imperial oak doors separate the fellowship hall from the auditorium area to help reduce noise.

A rough opening was left in the wall by the factory for this jaw-dropping beautiful custom designed stained glass window to be installed onsite by the parishioners.

A standard ceiling height of 9 foot with 2×2 recessed revealed edge T-grid ceilings were installed throughout the remainder of the building. This was a cost effective way for the church to have a nice commercial look. The custom paint colors and hardwood floors were continued throughout the entire building.

The fellowship hall area has ample space for tables and chairs where the congregation can meet after hours.

As you can see, our modular buildings are solid, strong and well constructed. You will definitely not feel the “bounce” of a cheap office trailer in our buildings when walking through this building.

They are well insulated to help with sound reduction and also utility bills inside your modular building. New energy efficiency standards are being released and our buildings are required to meet or exceed any energy efficiency regulations.

In fact, most people will never even know that they are standing inside a modular building. The exterior of the building is equally impressive. Hardipanel siding material was installed at the factory using our Rose Signature Architectural Block look. The “pleko” trim package was installed over the windows, doors, matelines, corners and roofline for a nicely finished look.

The church chose to site-install a real brick foundation around the base of the building to give it a more permanent look.

A large access panel allows entry under the building for any future maintenance. This building features an internal gutter system.

The roof drain assemblies divert water from the roof down the wall through large PVC pipes that are tied together under the building. Water is then diverted into a drainage area away from the building. The white pipes you see here are the emergency overflow drains. These are for backup emergencies only. If there is ever water flowing from these pipes, that means the roof gutters are clogged and need to be cleaned out.

The HVAC system in the church was installed onsite by a local air conditioning company.

The utilities were also connected onsite by a local contractor.

A nice large deck was added on the back of the building for use as an outdoor gathering area.
