When leaders of Triad Christian Fellowship Church decided the time was right to build a new facility, they wanted a structure with a traditional-look and reliable construction. They turned to Superior Walls of North Carolina for the solution.
"We were able to provide this church with our energy efficient precast concrete Above Grade (AG) Wall System featuring a textured exterior finish," says Peter Biller with Superior Walls of North Carolina. "Triad Christian Fellowship Church and Griffith & Thomas Construction Company selected a very traditional red brick textured finish on the precast walls that make up their structure. This allowed them to get the look of brick while having superior energy-efficiency benefits at an affordable price.
"In addition, these walls provide exceptional strength and sound-deadening features for their inner sanctuary. As a bonus, the installation was extremely fast, which helped them to move the project forward very quickly."
For the church project in Winston Salem, North Carolina, 4,500-square feet of panels embossed with brick surface were manufactured at the company's facility and transported to the church site. A total of 880 lineal feet of walls systems was installed in just 14 hours to provide the builder with a structural, insulated shell ready for installation of the roof system and the interior slab.
Specially designed for use in above grade applications, the Superior Walls AG precast concrete product can be used in conjunction with foundation panels and stacked to create multiple stories as part of a complete wall system building solution. Whereas conventional wall construction with block and wood framing can take weeks, the AG Wall Systems can typically be installed in just hours. Pre-engineered and custom manufactured off-site, delivered and installed by Superior Walls' certified crews, the cost-effective process is supervised by experienced Superior Walls representatives from project conception to reality.
Surface Textures on precast concrete walls can be ordered in several finishes, different shapes, colors and sizes of brick and a variety of pavement stones.
"The different textures and precast products available from Superior Walls of North Carolina provide for almost unlimited residential and commercial design options for builders who are looking to stay ahead of their competition," says Biller. "Most importantly, these products are affordable and beautiful. As a result, they help to create efficient projects with lasting value for their owners, backed by an industry-leading warranty."
