Gresham turned a commercial building fire disaster to an advantage, with a rebuilding scheme that added 60% more building volume to the same site at one-third less cost than duplicating the original.

First Presbyterian Church – Norfolk

E.T. Gresham and HEWV teamed to deliver a facility to house the fast growing First Presbyterian Church of Norfolk. Included in the design was an expansion to house the Contemporary Worship service, an expansion of the preschool with a new entrance, office and classroom space, a renovation to the existing historic building to house the church offices, and more efficient parking for its members. In all, total area of the renovation/addition was more than 25,000 square feet.
