First Baptist Church at the Mall spent over $110,000 in design fees for a worship center with what they were told would be a maximum seating of 1,800. After we became involved in completing the design this church ended up with a state of the art facility with a 2,400 seat sanctuary.
First Baptist Church of Brandon had completed design of their new facility with an architect only find out that they were $2 million over their budget. After determining they could not complete what had been designed we were contacted and the building was redesigned and completed for less than originally estimated. The savings they realized allowed them to add many upgrades they would not have otherwise been able to afford.
