Project Overview

Owner Messiah Lutheran Church
Location Burlington, Iowa
Delivery Method General Contractor
Description New Construction
Gross Floor Area 15,600 SF

Carl A. Nelson & Company served as general contractor for this church originally constructed in 1960.  Since that time, we have completed several projects for Messiah Lutheran Church.

This building consists of a 450 seat sanctuary with special inlayed stained glass from floor to ceiling behind the pulpit giving it the iconic look.  At its highest point, the sanctuary ceiling reaches a height of 34 feet, 10 inches.  This space also includes a choir loft and organ area.

Flanking either side of the sanctuary, are two wings with curved walls for added architectural appeal.  The east wing houses a kitchen and social hall while the west wing is comprised of Sunday school rooms and a pre-school area.

Construction also included a  sacristy, workroom, basement, offices and narthex.
