New Construction – 84,449 SF
With commanding architectural entry-ways, the exterior of the new facility features materials designed to complement existing campus facilities. The dynamic two-story vaulted main entry brings visitors into the lobby / fellowship space and directs them to the new 1,300-seat sanctuary, administrative wing and classrooms. The worship center features a sloped floor with auditorium seating, acoustic ceiling clouds, and state of the art audio/visual technology.
This project faced a number of challenges in the early stages of master planning and design, including complex storm water regulations, a compact site that posed parking and circulation difficulties and intense scrutiny by city and county agencies.
“When we saw the significant savings provided through this [BGW] approach, we realized that it was possible to build Phase II and Phase III for less than half of what had been previously projected.” – Project Manager, NorthCreek Building Committee
