Built in 1902 and donated to the City in 1987, the Sanger Presbyterian Church has a rich and long history, including receiving Texas Historical Landmark status in 1972. Once used as a library, the building was officially retired in 1995. After 20 years of sitting empty and in disrepair the church was given new life when EIKON provided architectural and structural design services for the restoration of this historical landmark.
EIKON provided architectural visual assessments and structural observations of the existing church building and recommended areas of elevations and structure that needed to be refurbished, repaired, and replaced. The design included reconstruction of the roof and steeple, restoration of the exterior siding and trim, and a complete remodel of the approximately 2,200 SF interior. EIKON also provided two architectural renderings of the Old Sanger Presbyterian Church; one site plan and one front perspective.
A retrofit was designed to add support to the existing roof structure and lift the beams and trusses to correct the deflection. In addition, unnecessary loads were removed from the existing structure and supported by new framing members.
