Over a hundred years old, this historic landmark broke ground on a new Family Life Center in downtown New Bern, NC.

New Atlantic was selected early on to partner with Tabernacle Baptist Church for this addition and to be a partner as they moved through the process of design development and now with construction.

The project consisted of approximately 25,000 SF of a new, 2-story addition that contains classrooms, a performance area, a multipurpose room with athletic flooring and a commercial kitchen. The exterior consisted of brick veneer and precast with colonial style windows.

New Atlantic had to assist with estimating multiple conceptual designs over several years until the right program and design was established. Although new, it blends in nicely with the historical district of New Bern.
