Saint Helena Church

Location: Center Square, PA
Architect: Knabb Partnership

O'Donnell & Naccarato provided structural engineering services for the new 18,400 SF, single-story, 1,000 seat church in Center Square, PA. The church also has a 10,150 SF partial basement with banquet facilities. The first level of framing consists of composite slab/beam construction, supported on cast-in-place concrete basement walls. The church roof is sloped and was constructed using a prefabricated timber framing system. The project also includes a 1,700 SF single-story, 100-seat chapel connected to the existing rectory.
