Client: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Gross Floor Area: approximately 1250 sq. m Service: Mechanical and Electrical Building Services Design
This new 2-storey Standard Plan Meetinghouse for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was developed by the Design Team with the Client to meet the need of a 21st Century Meetinghouse. As a place of worship the building fabric and services did not have to comply with Part L of the Building Regulations; however the Client and Design Team felt it was important to incorporate low energy and water saving features into the design where possible.
Some of the features incorporated are; generous levels of natural daylight to reduce the need for artificial lighting, low energy lighting including LED car park lighting, a 400 person naturally ventilated Chapel and Cultural Hall and a zoned high efficiency gas-fired heating system.
