OUR PROCESS

Any painter will tell you that a properly prepared canvas is the foundation for an inspiring, enduring piece of art.  We treat all of our projects with the same regard, defining our framework with your mission, ministry, and style to create a well-founded concept from beginning through completion. We need to know who you are, and who you are reaching, before we put pen to paper. Solidifying the foundational elements before the tangible design takes place is the first step in a successful project.

The effectiveness of our collaborative design process has been proven through the successful completion of over 400 church projects. We’d love to talk with you about how we can work together to create the best possible design for your needs.

SESSION 1 : ENGAGE

We are passionate about the process of discovery and fully understanding of what makes you do what you do. Our initial conversations are intentional and focused upon your ministry and your personalities. During this time of engagement, we will breakdown the DNA of your Church, set expectations and establish the foundation on which we will bring this idea to reality.

SESSION 2 : CHARETTE

Based on the information gathered, we will then lead you through a charette process. Starting  with  case  study  visits,  programming,  and  individual  ministry  studies,  we generate conceptual design iterations upon which the final design will be based.

SESSION 3 : DESIGN

Based upon refined concepts established during our charrette phase, we will then carry these concepts forward in the documentation phase. We will evaluate building methodologies, flow and phasing down to the smallest of details in order to achieve quality assurance and ease of construction. Ultimately, design is always in the forefront during all phases of the project.

SESSION 4 : BUILD

During the construction process we will be on site to observe progress, ensure that the expectations are being fulfilled and that the design from the collaborative team is constructed to satisfaction. We will continue to work with your Ministry and the construction team during this phase to address any concerns and questions that arise in an effort to maintain the project’s schedule.

SESSION 5 : TRANSFORM

When our project journey comes to a close, the most rewarding piece is the Church’s transformation. This is the key ingredient to why we do what we do. We want to celebrate with you what God has done through your project and how your ministry will move and impact others in the future.
