Mary Our Queen Catholic Church is a 37,500 square foot basilica-style sanctuary located in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.
Modeled after the former St. Gerard’s Catholic Church in Buffalo, New York, the structural system for the white brick facility consists of steel framing, steel trusses, and bar joist roof framing, metal deck roof, reinforced slab-on-grade, composite steel elevated floors, and non-load bearing masonry and metal stud exterior walls supported on shallow foundations.
In addition to a new sanctuary for Mary Our Queen parishioners, the new church includes a choir loft, a sacristy for priests and storing of vestments, a bride’s room, and a small blessed sacrament chapel.
PES Structural Engineers provided structural design services as part of the Harrison Design team. The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company served as the project’s General Contractor.
