GFRC Restoration at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion in Memphis
Built as a missionary chapel in 1939, the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion in Memphis has contributed to the spirituality and community of worship in Memphis for over seven decades. However, in addition to a place of worship, the Church of the Holy Communion also shares its grounds with St. Mary’s Episcopal School, a nationally recognized college preparatory school for girls. Despite its solid foundations, in 1990, the church was undeniably due for a visual touch-up, so the good folks at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion contacted Texas-based Stromberg Architectural, one of the premier architectural restoration companies in the United States.
GFRC Restoration by Stromberg Architectural
The Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion has always featured beautiful white columns along the outside of the main building. These signature columns were in a sad state in 1990, but Stromberg knew exactly what to do. Building materials have come a long way since 1939, and Stromberg’s mastery of GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) is unrivaled. Due to the amazing versatility of GFRC and the world class craftsmanship at Stromberg, brand new, ornate columns were manufactured to perfectly complement the original architecture of the church while ensuring that the new columns would last for decades to come.
Custom GFRC Restoration is Built to Last
All GFRC products fabricated by Stromberg Architecture are significantly more durable, resilient and easy to maintain than the alternatives. GFRC is resistant to even the most hazardous environmental dangers such as hurricanes, acidic rain and extreme temperature fluctuation. GFRC will not rot, rust or delaminate over time. It will not erode like stone, concrete or brick and it will not crack like ceramics. No one can tell what the future holds, but one thing is certain, Stromberg GFRC will be there.
