With years of religious facility design experience, WKWW Architects with our consultants offer comprehensive faith based architectural, engineering and planning services.

Architectural Programming

We can assist the church in determining what spaces are needed through Architectural Programming within the building committee, select church representatives, or through the involvement of the entire congregation.  The result is an Architectural Program and Programming Opinion of Probable Cost.

Master Planning (Long Range Planning)

Master Planning can be provided to assist in determining where the programmed spaces will be located on a new site or existing church campus.  Site and parking needs are also incorporated into a colored Master Plan.

Schematic Design

Working with information from the Program, Master Plan, and building committee, the architectural floor plans and elevations are designed.  Schematic drawings are provided for presentation of the project to the church congregation.  Schematic Opinion of Probable Cost is provided.

Design Development and Contract Documents

Architectural, Site/Civil, Structural, Plumbing, Mechanical, and Electrical construction drawings and specifications are provided.  Some projects include the addition of Food Service, Audio/Visual, and Church Furniture designs.

Bidding / Negotiation

The project is negotiated with a single general contractor or bid to an invited list of several general contractors.  We administer the bidding or negotiation process.

Construction Administration

During construction we administer the contract between the church and the general contractor.  Periodic site visit observations are made and construction conferences are held. Shop drawing submittals are reviewed and payment applications are certified.  Final project review and punch out is provided.
