Columba Niche Building
Pavo Niche Building
Carina Niche Building
Sagitta Niche Building
Vela Niche Building
In collaboration with Coldspring, Mekus Tanager designed a collection of new niche buildings that offer the cemeterian a brand new building type.
5 New Building Types
In the new collection, there are five building types, each with their own unique style and set of options that will allow the cemeterian to customize each building and to help the new building support the desired aesthetic of the cemetery.
Unique Burial Inventory
The new buildings are designed to provide the cemetery with cremation inventory in a unique way.; each building is customizable to the cemeterians’ specific requirements with a variety of building options. These options could include the buildings within the new collection, building materials such as siding, flooring, or roofing, whether the building is an indoor or outdoor space, what type of columbariums and the shutter material, and other options that allow the cemeterian to maximize their own return on investment.
Building Footprint & Phasing
Land in a cemetery is valuable. To promote the best use of land and return on investment for the cemetery, the collection of niche buildings offers a variety of sizes ranging from footprints of 26’x25’ to 30’x94’. With a footprint as little as 650 sq.ft., cemeteries can add valuable cremation inventory, allowing cemeterians to capitalize on even the smallest available land area.
In addition to their small footprints, each building type within the series is designed to be phase-able, allowing the cemeterian to add inventory as needed or to allow the building to fit within the cemetery’s budget. Furthermore, because the buildings come with so many options, the cemeterian is allowed to add the right kind of inventory that sells in future phases of the building.
Each building also comes with areas to add unique artwork, allowing the cemeterian to make each building unique to the cemetery and to have the building support and reflect the religion, region, or culture of the cemetery.
The buildings are currently in their final stages of development with Coldspring, and will be offered to cemeterians soon!
