The Christ Church project team receives the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award at the 2017 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance
At the 2017 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance on September 6, Clancy & Theys was honored to be a member of the project team which received the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award for its work on the Christ Episcopal Church addition and renovation. Vice President of Construction Baker Glasgow and Director of Business Development Matt Chambers were present to watch members of the Christ Church Building Committee accept the award.
Located across the street from the State Capitol, Christ Church was founded as Raleigh’s first Episcopal church in 1821 and its sanctuary is one of three National Historic Landmarks in the city. Clancy & Theys started the church’s renovation and expansion project nearly two years ago, including expanding the parish hall and creating a larger entrance and gathering space. The Clancy & Theys project team included Baked Glasgow, Project Manager Tom Clancy, General Superintendent Alan Brinson and Superintendent Randy Wood.
As stated by the Raleigh Appearance Commission, the Sir Walter Raleigh Awards for Community Appearance recognize outstanding new contributions to the character, environment and appearance of the City of Raleigh. Specifically, the Rehabilitation / Historic Preservation Award is given for preservation or rehabilitation of existing buildings, especially Raleigh’s historic resources.
Since 1983, the Commission has presented more than 200 Sir Walter Raleigh Awards to developers, designers, building owners, community groups, civic clubs, churches, and citizens.
The Nature Research Center (NRC), part of the Green Square Complex, is North Carolina’s premier sustainable project. Last week, the NRC facility earned LEED® Platinum Certification. The Owner’s vision was to be a “national model of environmental efficiency and sustainability.” The goal was to create a nationally significant research center within a complex that would “promote stewardship by example to the general public, while providing experiential learning opportunities focused on the current scientific research and environmental issues affecting our daily lives.”
