Overview

BIM experts Vectorprojects Kenya designed and detailed the cathedral’s architectural finishes and fixtures in 3d, due to the shell’s challenging stereotomy.

Enclosure walls, fascias, flashings, gates, grilles, joinery, rainwater goods, stations of the cross, stonework, and wooden ceiling slats, were designed for construction by Vectorprojects Kenya, following a strict approval protocol, harmonising the architecture with the resplendent artwork (also featured elsewhere on Codaworx).
