Design/Build Approach for Church Construction

Evans has vast experience helping congregations build, and in fact, we've performed construction services for 90+ religious facilities. All of our church construction projects are ones of great pride, and as a Christian, family-run company, these projects become very personal. Our specialty is providing a design/build approach within a collaborative team effort. This provides our clients the greatest control of cost, value, and quality from the beginning of the design process to the completion of the project.

Integrated Project Delivery

We approach our church construction projects with what is often referred to these days as Integrated Project Delivery, or also coined, Integrated Practice. These industry terms generally refer to the same style of project approach. Recently endorsed by the American Institute of Architects (AIA), this project management philosophy is seen by many as the preferred method for church construction. It centers around bringing all key players in on the project, right from the start, and preferably during the design phase. Bringing together the church with key specialty trades allows the building committee to make educated design choices based on feasibility and cost impact. Getting all key players in on the project early ensures that the contracting team truly understands the congregation's needs and wants.

Planning

As your church takes the initial step of turning vision into reality, we can guide you through the development of a master plan for growth. This involves form­­ing your planning committee, creating congregational surveys to help evaluate where your church is now, and formalizing a project plan.

Church Funding

You know your congregation is ready to expand, but what can your church really afford to spend? Based on historical data and your specific needs, we may recommend a combination of capital building campaigns and loan programs. Build with our knowledge of established funding resources.

Design & Budget Analysis

Ensuring collaboration among Committee members and the Architect team, we examine recommended square foot guidelines and provide visualization services to bring your concept to presentation. It is crucial we continually analyze budget cost estimates, explore saving options, and research alternate building methods.

Building Automation

Explore how building automation can improve a congregational experience. We can guide you through design decisions that will blend audio/visual equipment with data and communication systems as well as security and lighting into beautiful, functional design.
