Cape Cod Church
East Falmouth, MA
The Cape Cod Church is the largest church located in Cape Cod. The new church building is a 40,000 SF structure build for a total of $132.00/SF. Before construction started, the building team went through several iterations of “value engineering” and rebidding from major subcontractors to reduce costs. Importantly, the church benefited from a selfless army of over 200 volunteers, including the construction site supervisor, electrical subcontractor and many others who performed work. The bank assessed the value of volunteer contribution at $1.6 million.
The church features a 1,000 seat sanctuary with stadium seating divided in to multiple sectors along the back wall. In an interview with Worship Facilities Design Magazine, the architect stated: “Another significant savings was changing the stadium seating support from steel for large foam blocks. Volunteers were able to assist in the foam block installation and recognize an overall savings in the $65,000 range.” The architecture was by Glenn Knowles & Associates. The project is a standard 16GA PREFOAM System and was constructed in 2014.
