HELMAR LUTHERAN CHURCH
11935 Lisbon Road
Newark, IL 60541
Size: 15,000 s.f. Addition
General Contractor: Schramm Construction
Located in Kendall County, this rural church wanted to build a 15,000 square foot Family Life Center with a performance platform and a high school regulation basketball court in order to meet the demands of their various ministries. The new addition utilizes economical steel building construction with an acknowledgement of the original Gothic style church building. Several of the features include a new kitchen, multipurpose gymnasium designed to seat 300 to 400 for dining, relocation of existing bell tower to the new main entrance, a covered vehicular dropoff, new restroom facilities, a large narthex/ gathering space, and new classrooms of various sizes. The addition is heated and cooled with an environmentally friendly, geothermal mechanical system.
