Valley Shepherd Church of the Nazarene

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Spiritual Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Valley Shepherd Church of Nazarene, located in the city of Meridian, Idaho, features a 5,400-square-foot Fellowship Hall and Gym, and a 30-foot by 30-foot Chapel with 37-foot high ceilings. In addition, two large cathedral-shaped stained-glass windows and an entrance door complement the entire design of the church, which showcases a 6:12 pitch roof.

Acoustic baffles and under-floor HVAC with an NC coefficient of less than 25 in the sanctuary ceiling provide state-of-the-art sound throughout the entire space. The church was built on a lot with park-feature capabilities, which allowed for the spacious eight acres of lawn.

According to the City of Meridian Mayor Tammy deWeerd, “Tilt-Up buildings can look good, just look at Valley Shepherd Church of the Nazarene.”

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
