When the St. Lawrence congregation contacted us, the were faced with a difficult problem. Water under the concrete floor of the sanctuary had plagued the church for years, filling up the conduit that contained the main cables for the church’s 1986 Zimmer organ.

Reynolds Associates solved this problem, and also updated and improved the organ, by installing a new Peterson ICS4000 control system, and enclosing plenum-rated CAT5 cable in a special waterproof jacket that could be run through the existing conduit, and then sealed in by the concrete contractors. The organ now has capabilites it never had before, and the church saved money and mess having its problem solved.
