Epiphany Church, Seattle
R. Gleason was chosen to provide the finishing on the Epiphany Capitol Project by LMN, the 2016 AIA Firm of the year. The Epiphany project was overseen by LCL (Lease-Crutcher-Lewis) and it was an honor to work collaboratively with such professionals. There were 3 major phases that required schedule, trade mitigations, on-site vs. shop finished product, and creative value engineering to get the best finishes and maintain job schedule. There were 4 different finishing protocols developed to provide options that afforded the client the ability to determine the finishing process that worked for their budget as well as maintaining and preserving the beauty of the 108 year old chapel (National Historical Registered).
Parish Hall – Fireside Room:
In an effort to compress the schedule and to minimize site toxicity, we chose to stain, seal, shade where necessary then cap with a thin seal coat prior to job shipment. This allowed the installation contractor the ability to sand joint intersections with R. Gleason finishing in place.
Church – Nave:
We were able to establish a revitalized interior that used state of the art finishes for longevity, feel and looks.
Church – East Elevation:
We had to balance the existing organ pieces (non-removable) with new stock to make it “almost impossible” to discern existing versus new.
Church – Choir Loft:
In an effort to value engineer and obtain the refreshed clean look, R. Gleason tested several protocols for doing the non-removable ceiling woodwork: Murphy’s Oil Soap and Lemon oil was the winner.
Chapel – South Elevation:
This is a 108-year-old National Historically Registered Church Sacristy. We chose not to remove existing hardware from the windows so as to not have a screw driver slip or damage the patina. R. Gleason collaborated with the Famed Organ Builder Martin Pasi to establish a charming stain for the Organ.
