Market Experience

All Ministries Center Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

Goose Creek, South Carolina
Working closely with the church, the Catholic Diocese, and the contractor, Choate Construction, the design of this 16,400 SF education/classroom – All Ministries Center was completed. The building was designed using a pre-engineered steel frame with standing seam metal roof and clad in brick and stucco. Unique features of the design included a high-bay clerestory central corridor to allow daylighting of the central portions of the building interior.

Beulah Grove Baptist Church Expansion Study

As a proposed expansion to a recently completed new sanctuary, the church proposed to replace existing classrooms, offices, and church library and crate new family life facilities including multi-purpose space fellowship, recreation space, and kitchen area. The concept included demolition of existing outdated facilities, and the replacement construction of a two-story approximately 36,000 sq. ft. facility.

Educational Facilities Renovation & New Family Life Center Ft. Johnson Baptist Church

As a proposed expansion to the Church’s existing facility, the firm developed a conceptual plan for development of a Family Life Center, which included a new kitchen, multi-purpose gathering and recreation space and additional classrooms for the nursery/pre-school.

Fellowship Hall St. Luke’s Lutheran Church

Charleston, South Carolina
The firm provided initial planning and design as the first step in development of improvements and additions to the church. The new facility plans include over 11,000 sq. ft. of space including a Fellowship Hall with kitchen, stage, storage space, restrooms/lockers and five classrooms with academic office, reception and children's outdoor plan area.

Grace United Methodist Church

Charleston, South Carolina
As part of a plan to increase church membership and enhance an already established church mission, multi-phased improvements were done to the existing facilities. The first phase included the enclosure of an existing breezeway between the sanctuary and fellowship hall, new covered drop-off, new restrooms and expansion of the existing fellowship hall. The subsequent phase included the development of a new education building to create an expanded weekday school program for pre-schoolers. This building is nearly 10,000 sq. ft. and includes 8 classrooms, an infant room, reception/ administrative space, director’s office, teachers work room and support spaces.

Intercession Reformed Episcopal Church

Daniel Island, South Carolina
As part of assisting with a land development transaction, our firm developed a conceptual design for replacement of the existing church with a new church that would be located on another portion of the church site. The church serves a small congregation. The new church is larger than the original to accommodate some growth and includes a sanctuary/multi-purpose space to accommodate 70-80 parishioners, an office, restrooms, storage and small kitchen area. The church is approximately 2,770 sq. ft. of space and is elevated above the flood plain level with ADA handicap compliant ramp and stairs.

James Island Presbyterian Church Sanctuary Expansion/Renovation

James Island, South Carolina
This expansion/renovation project involved increasing the sanctuary seating capacity from 250 to 500 people. The concept developed included demolishing the center section of the church including steeple bell tower, a portion of the nave and chancel area and creating transepts on each side of the church, expanding the chancel and rebuilding the steeple above the intersection of the nave and transepts. The challenge for this project was developing a plan consistent with the original design of this historic church while expanding and creating a contemporary seating arrangement as requested by the minister and congregation.
