St Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church

St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church features the use of tilt-up for unique architectural shapes and dimensioning, including radius panels, arches, cantilevers, recesses, triangles and crosses. Tilt-up construction provided the most economical, durable structure that could easily accept high-end interior and exterior finishes. The 36,000-square-foot building features a 225-seat chapel and a massive sanctuary for 1,325 worshipers. The project's original design included cast-in-place concrete elements that were creatively redesigned to tilt-up. One of these elements, a 35-foot tall, 6-foot-thick solid concrete cross, was economically constructed with a cleaner, smoother and flatter finish than what would typically be achieved with cast-in-place construction. The 2-foot-wide by 6-foot-thick tilt-up cross included a 1-foot-wide by 1-foot-deep recess to support an Italian-imported 20-foot-tall sculpture of the crucifixion.
