Case Study

Founded in 2007, Experience Life Now Church strived to provide a new and exciting experience for those in search of a church home. What started as LifeHouse, a small home group of only a few families, quickly outgrew the home and multiplied into other neighborhoods. Experience Life held a few sneak peeks during the summer of 2007 and in the fall officially opened their doors with more than 330 people in attendance.


Built from the ground up, the new church had the opportunity to plan for the future while considering low maintenance and cost. General contractor ADC, Inc. wanted to create a unique design with affordable materials that would support the inevitable growth in the coming years. The project’s goals were to create an inviting environment that could withstand the strong winds of Lubbock. Both the FW-120 and 7.2 panels have been tested by a certified independent laboratory in accordance with ASTM test procedures for Air Infiltration and Water Penetration at the side lap.


These products were selected based on aesthetics and functionality. The combination of the panels installed both horizontally and vertically creates an eye-catching juxtaposition. The client was seeking a different look from the typical application, and these metal panels provided just that.

The FW-120 panel is a concealed fastener wall and liner panel that provides a flat appearance. The heavy gauge offering provides for large spanning capabilities, particularly in composite wall applications. The 7.2 panel offers versatility and functionality for roofs and walls. The symmetrical rib 7.2 Panel offers excellent eye-catching aesthetics and was used for the interior as well as the exterior.

ADC, Inc. of Lubbock, Texas designed the project, as well as served as the general contractor and Dane Construction of Wolfforth, Texas handled the roof installation.
