Builders who design and construct your church must know that the structure is more than just a building.
It’s a place that needs to be built to serve your mission. It’s a center of worship that represents you, your community, and your beliefs. It’s a place where you go for comfort and sanctuary.
At National Builders, we take your mission to heart when we design and build a center of worship, whether it’s a church, a synagogue, a temple, or a mosque. When we build or renovate, our goal is to manage up-front and long-term maintenance building costs so you can manage your funds for your mission.
Our team starts by listening to your congregation to understand your community’s needs for today and tomorrow. Then together, we help consider them against your available resources to craft a plan that focuses on your mission but helps preserve your funds.
A church construction project benefits most from our design-build delivery because it helps balance your community’s needs and resources. The delivery approach enhances value with a shorter build timeline but with schedule flexibility to accommodate religious events.
If your community is planning either new construction or a renovation for your religious building, a review of the following items will help guide your decisions:
- How many people belong to your group today?
- How has your group’s size changed over the last decade?
- How do you expect your size to grow in the next 20 years?
- What changes, if any, are occurring with your demographics, income, diversity, or in other areas?
- What services, observances, and educational programs do you offer? How will they likely change in the future?
- What other surrounding structures are part of your religious site, and how will your new construction interact with them?
As your builder, we also consider church construction design areas that include:
- How much community space, both indoor and outdoor, will help your members connect between services and events?
- How much will natural light enhance your worship experience?
- For clear communications in the sanctuary, we create an optimum acoustical space with design and materials to enhance sound transmission but minimize background noise.
- We employ sustainable and indoor environment quality practices for a healthy building that include ventilation, light, moisture control, and avoiding products with volatile organic compound emissions.
