Architecture

Creating an environment that reaches the first-time visitor and serves the long-time member is critical. The T&W team works diligently to design relevant facilities where people can relax, be themselves, connect with God and others and feel part of a special community of believers.

Through a series of meetings, your Building Team provides input and reviews concept drawings that result in an architectural presentation that incorporates your vision for ministry into preliminary building plans. The key components of this stage of our process are:

  1. Facility Schematic Design
  2. Master Site Plan Schematic Design
  3. Subcontractor Qualification

These elements create your ARCHITECTURAL SCHEMATIC ESTIMATE and will establish your Guaranteed Maximum Price.
