Our primary objective is to mesh our professional expertise with the needs of our clients, while taking into account their budgetary limitations, the setting which the building will occupy, and the short and long term use of the land and the facility. From the initial concept stage to finished construction, we approach each project from the client’s perspective – with emphasis on quality service and design excellence.
The Strategic Positioning process begins with submitting a questionnaire to the owner’s leadership team to assist in the collection of statistical information (worship & education attendance, existing facility capacities, and financial revenues & expense, etc.). We use that data to explore multiple “what if” scenarios. Through scenario analysis modeling, solutions are developed to balance the owner’s needs within the context of time and funding.
Throughout the process, a variety of variables are created and modified in order to evaluate cause and effect relationships within various scenarios. These variables include:
Attendance Growth Rates
Education Distribution across Multiple Services
Adding Additional Worship Services
Education Capacities for each Demographic
Worship Center Seating Capacity
Design, Construction, & Fundraising Time-frames
Time-Value of Money (Construction Inflation)
Growth Rate of future Revenues
Distribution of Financial Expenses
Project Cost (Hard, Soft, & Developmental Cost)
