Christ Episcopal Church at Tashua  |  Trumbull, Connecticut

To meet the growing demands of this congregation, an addition with code compliant upgrades was constructed. The addition houses classrooms, business offices and a social and meeting hall. Since the owner was working with a stringent budget for this 170 year old church, Caldwell & Walsh worked with the architect to value engineer the project to get to the desired budget without sacrificing the historic, aesthetic, and functional high points of the project. The buildings’ new sprinkler system was installed in a manner that preserved the original horsehair plaster ceilings. Concealed attic catwalks were installed so as not to disturb Sunday services with unsightly scaffolding. Crews were mindful of the historic cemetery when excavating one foot away from it when preparing the new foundation. Many existing stones were saved and used to patch the historic foundation when shoring steel was removed.
