Churches & Religious

Lawson Elser has designed over forty five church and religious structures in our twenty year history, and we continue to add new religious projects to our experience each year. We are fortunate to have been the engineers on so many exciting and beautiful religious structures. Churches present special structural challenges and often involve large open sanctuary spaces that require long span structures. We have designed many such spaces and continue to meet those challenges using our experience and technical knowledge.
