Catalina American Baptist Church—Renovation and Nomination to the National Register of Historic Places

Project Location: Tucson, Arizona

Date of Performance: 2006-2009

Project Description: Renovation of historic 1961 sanctuary originally designed by Charles Cox. Provided assessment of the long-term viability of the thin-shell concrete roof. Provided context information, building survey and documentation of salient features for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. The mid-century Modern building was less than 50 years old and therefore required a determination of “exceptional significance” (which was granted) to obtain eligibility. Property was listed on the National Register in 2008. The renovation was published in the book Managing Energy Use in Modern Buildings: Case Studies in Conservation Practice by the Getty Center's Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative.
