Consulting and Master Planning

First and foremost, we are your partners.  We understand how important your project is and we have developed a customized process designed for religious projects – no matter how big or small. Eden Religious Facilities has been helping churches develop and build their facilities for over 30 years. We welcome the opportunity to share our expertise with you.

We feel it is our calling to help any church small or large, young or old, through the challenges of the “preparing to build process.” Through our strategic planning process, we will uncover what options are available and ultimately define which option is best for your church.

Our Consulting Process

  • Building the Team – A successful build requires a dedicated team working together. Perhaps no other step in the process is as crucial to success as building the right team. We personally interview and hire a civil engineer and architect for the project. We then invite these parties to submit a proposal based on expertise and experience with similar projects. Utilizing the knowledge we gain during this process, we will submit a fact-based recommendation for both the civil engineer and the architect for your review.
  • Defining the Project – Once the team is complete, the Engineer, Architect, Building Committee, and Eden will begin to define the project. The team will meet and develop the programming designed specifically around the needs of the church.
  • A Powerful Partnership – Eden manages every stage of the process, and we hold your input and concerns in the highest priority. Our management not only assures the project stays within scope and time, but it saves the church members a huge amount of time and effort.
  • Open Book, All the Time – As the architect draws the plans, we will be updating full project budgets at concept, 25%, 50%, and 100% completion. You will see all costs throughout the entire process.
  • Staying Local – Once the design portion of the project is completed, we implement a unique approach to selecting subcontractors to complete the build. Our goal is to utilize 95%-98% local subcontractors for every aspect of the job. We encourage you to participate in this process. We want to know local contractors that you recommend and those you prefer not to be contacted. We will bring our resources to the table to round out any gaps in the build.
