St. Jude Catholic Church New Campus
48,000 Square Feet
Prevot Design Services was selected to design a new church campus for St. Jude Catholic Church in Benton. The site is an unimproved 20-acre tract in Benton. The project is to consist of a 750-seat Sanctuary, a 40-seat daily mass Chapel, large Narthex space, choir rehearsal space, administrative office suite, commercial kitchen, family life center, maintenance area, nursery and 7 classrooms. The site will have a bell tower, 3 water features, a drop-off plaza, and 235 parking spaces. The Sanctuary was designed with a traditional cathedral east/west orientation and transepts crossing in a north/south Orientation. The roof framing system utilizes Gothic arches with an octagonal main space over the crossing and altar area. The plan incorporates biblical and theological symbolism into the architecture of the space. The project is being delivered through a construction management format that has Prevot Design Services working closely with Boggs and Poole Contracting Group throughout the design and construction process. The project received the ASID South Central Gold Award.
