St. Elias Church

Brampton, Ontario

St. Elias Church

After a fire destroyed the original St. Elias Ukrainian Catholic Church in 2014, it was rebuilt from the ground-up just two years later. Moses Structural Engineers worked closely with Zimmerman Workshop, DK Studios and Sustainable Edge to maintain the original beauty of the worship and community space while bringing the performance and efficiency of this incredible building up to current standards.

The design of the church follows the Ukrainian “Boyko” architectural style. There are five iconic copper-clad domes atop of the church, with the largest weighing over 18,000 kg! The church is constructed from heavy timber (glulam) on a concrete and stone base. The building measures over 75 feet high, from the base up to the foot of the highest cross.
