Service Credit Union
The Laconia Congregational Church was originally constructed in 1907. Bauen Corporation completed phased renovations of the existing church over a two year period to revitalize and reconfigure areas of the church. Phase one of the project included a complete renovation of the kitchen. New code compliant kitchen equipment was installed and the overall layout and size of the kitchen was improved. In phase two a second story bridge and new entry lobby were added to the church. The bridge addition was constructed as a link between the Sanctuary and the Parish House where Sunday School is held. The new entry added an enclosed entrance to the church elevator as well as a lobby area for parishioners to meet and mingle on Sunday mornings.
This project is the twelfth project with Keenan & Associates to date. Demolition of an existing 15,000 square foot restaurant and retail center made way for a state of the art branch office for Service Credit Union. The glass atrium allows natural light to flow into the lobby as well as the second floor office spaces. The EIFS building exterior required the entire building to be tented and heated in order to work through the winter to achieve the desired completion date.
