In 2019, Companion completed the construction of a new 54,000 ft² building for Riverside Church in Port Coquitlam.
The new building consists of a large 1200 seat auditorium, a full sized gymnasium, a large commercial kitchen, a beautifully finished atrium as well as administration and classroom spaces. Working with the church's building committee, we completed a modern architectural finish to the interior spaces and exterior facades. The stunning curved feature wall and expansive wood-finish metal soffits around the main building entrance welcome occupants into the main two story atrium space that, in itself, provides a beautiful meeting space for several hundred people.
The large auditorium was designed and built as a performing arts space with a theatrical stage complete with technology to support large scale events and an orchestra pit with a hydraulically lifted stage to lower players into a performance space or raise to extend the main stage area.
