The Crossing Phase 2 Auditorium Expansion

7950 W. Windmill Lane, Las Vegas, NV

The Phase II Expansion added a new main auditorium and entry plaza to The Crossing Christian Church’s three-building campus.


Project Description

The 46,813-square-foot auditorium building, which seats approximately 2,300 parishioners, was constructed on a load-bearing spread footing foundation system. The auditorium facility features three building systems. The main portion of the building is a pre-engineered metal building with structural metal stud infill for the walls. This gives the auditorium a completely open span, which means no obstructed views for the audience. On the north side of the auditorium structure, there are two masonry load-bearing joist building frame systems that are attached to the metal building. These masonry structures are home to restroom facilities and back-of-house stage areas. The third building system is structural framing attached to the east side of the building, which includes a foyer, café, restroom facilities, and lobby area. A challenge for this project was tying these three building types together into an aesthetically-pleasing, cohesive building.

The auditorium is one story, but has raised/tiered seating, which creates a pseudo second level that contains a mechanical room and storage spaces. The stadium-style seating was created with a lower concrete riser combined into the higher structural steel and decking portion. Unique interior features are the eight-foot, suspended, grid cloud system in the foyer and the rectangular, suspended, gypsum board ceiling clouds in the auditorium for acoustics.

The sitework portion of our contract included overlot grading, utilities, a 632-space parking lot, site lighting, landscaping, and a storm water system. In addition, Roche was responsible for a plaza area with specialized concrete work and an amphitheater.
