PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Temple Israel is a new Reform synagogue sited on a 14-acre parcel of what was a country club. Members of the Tri-Faith Initiative built a multi-faith neighborhood in west Omaha that will include three separate houses of worship: a mosque, a synagogue, an Episcopalian church, and a fourth building for interfaith collaboration.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Modern, energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly building systems: (HVAC, lighting, sound, technology, kitchen and administrative) are integrated into the fully-compliant ADA building.
  • Complete plumbing system: was provided, including all underground piping and public mains consisting of sanitary waste piping, sanitary vent piping, domestic hot and cold water piping, and storm sewer piping.
  • Facility is fully sprinklered: Sprinkler piping and head locations were closely coordinated to minimize their visibility.
  • Pathways and rough-ins: for voice and data and communications systems were provided for the facility.
  • Closed-circuit surveillance cameras: were located to monitor critical locations inside and outside the building.
