The design team spent
many hours detailing the
project while RCS Millwork
was constructing and
detailing everything, recalls
Sherman. "We worked handin-hand with RCS throughout
the construction and RCS'
computer modeling and
machining were vital to the
project's success."
Pulse Design was great
to work with, adds Hecht.
"When challenges came
up we were able to work
through solutions quickly
and get back on track
with project completion.
Constant communication
with the design team and
general contractor helped.
Several shop visits during
the construction of the
project helped visualize and
adjust details to fit with field
conditions and final design
intent."
"RCS has fabricated
many pieces of casework
on projects throughout our
medical center," says Brown.
"It was RCS who suggested
paneling the sanctuary
surround to aid in fabrication
and ease of installation."

Teamwork

The curved shape of the
sanctuary was influenced by
a napkin sketch of a nautilus
coupled with inspiration from
a Richard Serra sculpture,
points out Sherman. "The
aluminum reveals were
also an intricate part of the
design; they coil around the
curves and intersect each
other flawlessly."
"This curved wood
jewel provides a beautiful
and unique space for
contemplation," says Brown.
"The aura of the wood
product wraps around the
space and engulfs all who
are within. The verticality of
the curved walls directs one's
focus up toward peace and
healing in both a spiritual
and physical sense."
The two largest challenges
encountered were the
height of the project and the
elliptical shape, says Hecht.
One wall is 14 feet tall and
the other is 16 feet tall. "Both
walls were constructed in our
shop with a ceiling height
of 14 feet, six inches. This
created some challenges. Our
employees worked off lifts to
fabricate the walls in sections
that were manageable"
Crafting and installing
the enclosure in an existing
space without it feeling
like an obstruction was a
challenge that was beautifully
met, summarizes Brown.
