Christ Fellowship Baptist Church – Brooklyn, New York
Client: Christ Fellowship Baptist Church
Laland Baptiste provided construction management services for the Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, also known as “The Blue Church of Brooklyn,” for a project to replace a structural connection that failed. We provided immediate owners’ representation and construction management services for the stabilization of the church steeple. The firm stepped in quickly to work with the church, the New York City Department of Buildings, and the construction contractor to ensure that the church steeple was quickly and properly stabilized. We coordinated with the structural engineer and NYCDOB to gather reports and information requested by DOB to prevent any further violation/enforcement from NYC DOB.
This was a quick response project. Because of the potential risk to public safety, the client required immediate assistance from an experienced construction manager. We were able to quickly coordinate with the structural engineer, general contractor, scaffolding contractor and the Department of Buildings to ensure that the church steeple was quickly and properly stabilized.
