Cast Stone Gives Consistent Look to Church Exterior

Architect: Hansen Midgley Niemacki Architects, Inc.
Contractors: Walton Construction Company, Inc. , MGM Masonry, Inc.

The First Baptist Church of Raytown, Missouri was constructed in 1999. The church is a multi-phase project located on a 25-acre site. The first phase of the project was a $16.5 million, 109,000 square foot worship center that includes a sanctuary with a seating capacity of 3,000. Cast stone is represented by watertable, banding, chevrons, panels, and coping.

Detail Corner (First Baptist at Raytown)

The architect’s unique design that combines the chevron, banding and water table to create a focal point for the church front entry is represented by these details.

Coping can be made to look more massive by the strategic addition of a fascia stone below. This detail answers the question of where “hard joints” (mortar) and “soft joints” (shims, backer rod and sealant) are used.
