Architectural Sheet Metal
FEATURE PROJECT – Church of the Annunciation, Altamonte Springs
Project Name: Church of the Annunciation
Project Location: Altamonte Springs, Florida
Architect: Rick Swisher, Winter Park, FL
General Contractor: Walker & Co., Winter Park, FL
Sheet Metal Contractor: Vickers Metal Works, Inc., Orlando, FL
Description of Work:
The scope of the project undertaken by Vickers Metal Works, Inc. on the newly constructed Church of the Annunciation was to fabricate and install copper panels on each of the two steeples and to construct the cross located at the peak of the roof gable.
Vickers Metal Works, Inc. fabricated and installed 16oz. copper double lock standing seam panels on each steeple. The steeples measure 13 ft x 13 ft square at the base and reach vertically 25 ft above the base to a height of 80’ above the ground. The copper panels were installed over Ice and Water Shield underlayment, with resin paper moisture barrier. All work was performed according to SMACNA specification.
The copper cross which measures 78” above the roof and 50” at the crossbar was constructed using 2” round copper tubing, which was roll formed and welded as required. The cross was installed using a stainless steel bracket which was positioned before the roofing tile was installed.
Because of the heights involved, High Lift equipment was used to access all areas of the steeples during installation of the panels.
Installation took approx. 365 man hours, with an additional 150 man hours for shop fabrication.
