Join us as we explore the application of a frugal mindset to all phases of church design and construction. To begin, how might a church determine the feasibility of an expansion? We’ll discuss benchmarks for debt ratio and cash flow, and lender criteria. For the fundraising phase, we’ll share options for church-led and outsourced options, as well as denomination-specific funding programs. For the design phase, we’ll discuss master planning and phasing, cost/square foot and the good-better-best process for finish selection, plus ideas for multi-use spaces and hardworking square footage. Attendees will also learn how to compare contractor fees by category, and what value engineering really means.
Presented by: Lisa Sotis, Project Development Manager
