Completed in November 2007, S. C. Hondros & Associates, Inc. was privileged to construct a sanctuary for St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church in Charlotte. The design for this one-of-a-kind structure was based on the famous Hagia Sofia in Istanbul, Turkey. Although only a fraction of the original’s size, the structure features the same design features and proportions of the original. The church seats 749 parishioners and features a 74 ft. high dome, authentic Jerusalem Gold Marble tiles in the interior, groin vaulted and glass reinforced gypsum ceilings, and a total of 180 windows, most of which are arched dome shaped. Forty of these windows ring the base of the dome for added natural light.
