River of Life Church is located in Hastings, MN. It is a 1923 all masonry building. With a growing congregation, the church was in need of renovation work. Northfield Construction Company worked with the owners and the architect to create a work proposal that suited the budget and program needs.
We did an extensive amount of remodeling on the facility. We relocated the sanctuary to the former Christian education wing of the church, and created new Christian education areas in the remaining space. We added an elevator to address handicap access issues. We also constructed new fully accessible bathrooms. Every window in the building was replaced with new Andersen windows in a combination of styles and types. Two small additions were constructed at the building entrances.
Our work included a completely new mechanical system for the building. Air conditioning was provided using a high velocity system, with heating supplied by two hot water boilers. The electrical system was upgraded. Virtually all interior surfaces were refurbished and renewed. We rebuilt and constructed new cupolas on the roof, as well as re-roofed the entire building.
