Long Hall was a valuable addition

Herb Long, of Engineering Associates, a lifetime member of ACUMC, was the designing architect.

9/10/96, Dale Bowers and Pastor Ron, checking out blocks.
The holes in these blocks were then filled with concrete
and reinforcing rod for extra strength, see next photo.
Above: Filling holes in block with concrete
and reinforcing rod to add
strength for supporting the heavy steel I-beams.
Note: The worker on the ground scoops the concrete from
the wheelbarrow into bucket, hands it up to worker on
scaffold, who hands to the worker on top of the block
wall. The worker on top pours the concrete into
the holes in the block, the concrete fills the block all
the way down to the footer. This adds tremendous
strength to the 12 inch block wall.
Above: Heavy support
steel beams and steel support posts are
Long Hall's main floor. Concrete will be poured on top of these
This floor will support hundreds of people during the
many events that we hold in Long Hall.
