St. Andrew Lutheran Church
We worked closely with this church's congregation to remodel what was left of the building after it was partially destroyed by fire and add another 30,000 sf to the facility. To accommodate their budget concerns, several aspects of the project were handled by members of the congregation, including painting and siding installation. Through creative risk management, we coordinated training for their volunteer crews - even arranging for our flooring sub to mentor a few congregants in hardwood flooring installation. In the end, the facility turned out great and at a price the church could afford.
How does a building committee choose a company from six well qualified hopefuls? For St. Andrew, the choice boiled down to values. Care and compassion echoed through Deacon Corp.'s presentation and their value of people tipped the scales in their favor.
