am-cor created and supplied a unified steel and cement construction Kit to replace a burnt-down wooden church structure in Opal VA. The parish erected the DIY (do it yourslef) Kit and completed the building for about $75/sq.ft. (excluding site works). All structural elements of the building are made of prefabricated Ferrocement, from the footings to the roof.
Foamed-in-place insulation to walls and roof, and rigid foam insulation to foundation panels isolates the interior spaces and the earth under the church from temperature changes.
LED lighting and mini-split heat pumps were installed to save energy. The power supply required to keep this building comfortable turned out to be half the normal size.
