An extension of the Hilldale Baptist Church, the Hilldale Baptist Church Family Life Center in Clarksville, Tennessee was designed for recreation and fellowship. The facility houses a racquetball court, a weight and fitness room, a gym, a senior adult area and a large fellowship hall that can seat 800 people for banquets and 500 people for worship.
CENTRIA’s Versawall panels and Formawall Dimension Series products were selected for use on the Hilldale Baptist Church Family Life Center because they are both environmentally-responsible choices. Both products have achieved Cradle-to-Cradle® Certification at the Silver Level.
Versawall panels were also selected for their aesthetic and performance attributes. The gray panels provide a striking contrast with the building’s red brick and give the facility a traditional yet contemporary look that helps the church’s façade stand out. The product’s concealed fasteners also provide a natural, smooth and consistent surface for the church’s walls. Additionally, the Versawall panels provide outstanding weather resistance while their light weight allowed for lower installation costs.
Similarly, Formawall Dimension Series was selected because it requires only one installer, which makes installation simple, increases efficiency in construction and ensures high quality, long-term performance. Formawall Dimension Series also is the only complete metal wall system to provide superior thermal efficiency and total air and moisture control in a single panelized component. In terms of aesthetics, the panels were chosen because they provided a clean, uninterrupted appearance.
The architect was Violette Architecture/Interior Design of Clarksville, TN; the CENTRIA products dealer/installer was MPS, Inc. of Mount Juliet, TN; and the contractor was Hardaway Construction Corp. of Nashville, TN. The 55,370 sq. ft. project was completed in 2008.
