At the beginning of the project, we were involved with an architect using the traditional approach, who was unable to get the project in budget and cranked up. Powell got involved and helped us solve our problems in a very fair and honest manner. Powell stepped in and quickly erased our frustrations by bringing the project into budget. They have been wonderful to work with, they have given great advice.
This 80,504 square foot addition to the church’s campus was built to meet an immediate need, but with an eye on future needs.
The project sits on 25 acres and includes 1400 parking spaces. Much of our contribution was in value engineering, which saved the owner more than $2 million. We were able to generate further savings by handling the tax-exempt purchase orders and invoices for the church.
Features of the structure include a tiered sanctuary that seats 3500, state-of-the-art theatrical lighting and sound systems, and 10 classrooms. Planned future phases include choir practice rooms, administrative offices, additional classrooms, and a mall/gathering area to interconnect all spaces.
