• Building Envelope Consultants and Scientists

Religious and ecclesiastical structures span a wide range in construction, materials, and architecture. Places of worship may be historic with a unique design or they may be of simple design; however, many of the needs are the same. Churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples trust BECS for their enclosure and structural needs.

BECS has worked on projects from the Archdiocese of Baltimore to one of the oldest churches on the east coast. We work with ecclesiastical clients to ensure minimal disruptions, efficient repair and replacement options, and project phasing to ensure your place of worship continues to serve. With BECS’s industry-leading historic experts, we will ensure that the repair and preservation of the structure meet federal, state, and local regulations.

Common Religious and Ecclesiastical Structures and Components:

  • Building Façades

  • Pedestrian Bridges & Walkways
  • Balconies and Fire Escapes
