Excellence in Design Award

Mt. Moriah ChurchCarolina Specialties recently won the First Place Award, “Excellence in Design 2013” from American Buildings, in the category of Church and Religious Centers, for it’s design and construction of the Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Edneyville, NC.

CSC’s staff worked with the Church to design and build a facility which would serve the needs of the congregation and look good doing it!

Built on the site of the former church, the new structure features a classic brick exterior, topped with an impressive bell tower and tall white spire. CSC’s in-house design team worked with the building committee from Mt Moriah to produce a church worthy of it’s predecessor, which was constructed in the 1880’s.

From the interior or the exterior, it would be hard to tell that the frame and envelope of the church is constructed using a pre-engineered steel building system. The large open sanctuary, with no intermediate support columns, was made possible due to the capabilities of this system.

CSC has many years of experience using pre-engineered steel. Early in the process, CSC recognized that meeting the budget requirements of the Church while delivering an attractive and high quality finished product would be a challenge.  American Buildings, a Nucor company, was a logical choice to work with to meet these goals, and meet them in a predictable time frame.

Carolina Specialties is proud to be recognized with this award for it’s efforts on behalf of such a venerable organization in the Henderson County community.
