Consulting and Master Planning: Thinking Everything Through

Since 1987, Eden Religious Facilities has helped churches build new facilities. Along the way, we’ve learned the key to successful projects is thoughtful planning long before construction begins. While churches -- especially those with rapidly growing congregations -- are typically eager to begin work, investing time in a planning process ensures all options and needs are considered. Plus, it’s much easier to make substantial changes in the planning stage than after construction is underway.

Creating a Team

We’ll work with your internal team, whether that involves a building committee, parish council, elders, or other group to understand your objectives and concerns. Based upon the objectives and the potential scope, we’ll use our experience to recommend an architect and a civil engineer for the project.

Working with the architect, engineer, and your team, we’ll refine the scope and begin to define the project. Those discussions generally center upon the programming planned for the facility -- how it will be used, who will use it, and when.

Your Partner

Throughout the process, we act as your partner and representative, managing every step and ensuring your input and concerns receive the attention they deserve. We’ll keep you well-informed at every stage, involving you in important decisions without wasting your time with minute details. We’ll update budgets as the project proceeds, so you’ll always have a clear understanding of the costs and reasons for any changes.

Keeping It Local

Once actual construction begins, our goal is to use local subcontractors for every aspect of the project. After all, we know you want to support businesses in your community. We’ll work with you to identify subcontractors you recommend (and those you’d prefer to avoid) and tap into our own resources to fill out any gaps.
