What kind of building renovation work will the Connections campaign enable us to do?
Our hope is that gifts from this campaign will allow us to complete the entire first-floor renovations included in the master plan created by Merriman-Holt Architects. This first phase would include the new entryway and gallery, the new gathering space outside the sanctuary, two new elevators to access both second and third floors, and the new music suite with a larger choir room. Weems Hall would also be expanded to accommodate Wednesday night meals, and office space would be reconfigured for easier access from the new entryway. Additionally, all first-floor classrooms and restrooms for the church and Day School will be updated and renovated.
Will existing issues with water leaks be addressed in the renovation?
Absolutely. Based on our architect’s advice, we’ve already enlisted the services of a water infiltration engineering firm to provide an analysis of existing issues. This analysis will then be incorporated into the work plans of our contractor, Tudor Construction.
