Our Process

always begins with your dream.

The Church has a vision and needs, and they connect to a facility.

Our process starts with a conversation. We want to hear your dream, your vision, and understand your need. We never pretend that we know what you want. We never think or assume that what we did for another community will work for your community.

Our process is simple, to learn and discover what your Ministry is all about. What are your successes, what are your goals, who is your community, and who are you seeking to reach?
From there, we begin to design together with the priorities that you have established.

Our process is designed to end with a building, or remodel, an addition, or conversion. We do not wish to draw cartoons or “practice.” Therefore our process incorporates knowing your resources and limits. If your vision is more significant than your resources, as it should be, we have the experience to know the boundaries between faith and testing as we define a total budget.

Our process knows real construction costs, and we help you achieve the best value for your project. We continually evaluate aesthetics, function, and cost throughout the process.

Our Services

Schematic Design

Working together, we define a program. The program is a list of the functions you plan to do in your facility. (rooms & room-names, occupancies & sizes, relationships or what needs to be near what) The program also defines the visual or aesthetic priorities, acoustical needs, circulation-corridors, restroom-requirements, mechanical and electrical space, and more. The program is adjusted and modified to align with costs and budgets before graphics are produced. Following the program, graphics are produced to define function and uses (Floor Plans). Elevations are designed to communicate aesthetics and massing and define your impact on the community and how your facility will fit in its environment. The conclusion of the Schematic Design typically ends with a photorealistic rendering to begin sharing your vision with others.

Construction Documents

With Church Leadership & Municipal approval to move forward, the Architectural, Life Safety, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, & Fire Protection documents are developed. During this process, we integrate congregation specific requirements into the final permit and construction package. Examples include audio, video, & lighting (AVL), children themes, interior design, coffee-shops, kitchens, and the like – that are unique to your ministry. The end result is a comprehensive stack of blueprints ready for bidding, permitting, and construction.
