Purpose of Renovation Committee Develop a Professionally Prepared, Multi-Phased and Multi-Year Master Renovation Plan, For Centrum, Commons, Fellowship Hall and Front Entrance.
Guidelines We Will Use To Create Renovation Plan Process We Used to Develop The Plan “Built of Living Stones” Energy Efficient and Green Solutions Diocese’s Review and Approval
Process For Developing “Needs Lists” Gather “Needs Lists” from 17 Ministries Determine Which Needs will be included in the “Needs List” Present the “Needs List” to Parish and Finance Councils and Staff Parishioners
Final Needs List to Architect Meet with Architect to Present the “Needs List” used to prepare Plan Hughes Associates Architect is the firm selected to do the Renovation Plan
Why Was Hughes Associates Selected They are the SW Virginia leader in Religious Assembly design, having completed over 260 projects They were the Architects who did the did OLN’s ADA Bathroom Renovation Plans They were the firm who evaluated, worked with HVAC consultant and prepared the design for the New HVAC System for the Centrum They know our building
Some of Hughes Associates Projects Francis of Assisi Catholic Church Resurrection Catholic Church First Baptist Church St. John’s Episcopal Church Church of the Holy Spirit Our Lady of Perpetual Help
Hughes Associates Architect Services They Would Prepare Detailed Architectural Drawings Once Plans Were Approved, They Would Prepare Specifications and Scope of Work for Contractors Bids They Will Obtain Bids from General Contractors Who They Have Used Building Churches They Will Be the Construction Administrator
Evaluation by Finance Council We Have Architectural Drawings We Have Estimates of the Costs Council Will Evaluate the Total Cost Council Will Decide What We Can Afford Make Decision on What is Going to Be Included in the Different Phases of Comprehensive Renovation Plan
Final Renovation Plan Present Final Renovation Plan Joint Meeting of Councils and Staff Parish Finance Council Develop Funding Plan Renovation Fund Raising Committee Will Establish Goals Will Start Fund Raising
Questions Discussed The preliminary estimate is the Renovation Plan Cost would be $1.5 – 3.0 Million Why would we not consider building a new Worship Space that would seat more people and would accommodate our future growth?
Questions Discussed (continued) Why would we not consider building a new Worship Space that would seat more people and would accommodate our future growth? Cost of new worship space $8 – 12 Million 5 – 6 years before we could hold the first mass This Assumes that we raise the funding required by the diocese Some of the Parishes who have built new churches are having difficult time making their monthly loan payments
Questions Discussed (continued) With The Renovation Plan The Renovated of Centrum will be completed in August 2014 Parishioners would enjoy an enhanced “worship experience” 5 Years sooner The HVAC problems of noise and fan blowing down on members would be corrected New Lighting will enhance the “worship experience” Interior finishes will make the centrum warmer and more inviting The enhanced “worship experience” will attract new members We believe the Renovation Plan is a more fiscally responsible approach rather than building a new church
Questions Discussed (continued) Our present seating arrangement maximizes the number of seats in the Centrum. Several of the Needs List items would reduce the that number. How many seats will we lose with the Renovation Plan? More seating for the disabled and making the sanctuary more accessibility to the disabled will reduce the number of seats Presently we have 584 seats and 6 disability spaces We will instruct the Architect to maximize the number of seats WE WILL LOSE SEATS with the new plan but will not know how many until the Architects plans are completed
Questions Discussed (continued) Will we be required to install kneelers by the diocese’s Renovation Committee ? We do not know at this time whether we will have to install kneelers. We believe kneelers are required when a new church is built. There is a question whether kneelers will be required when a Centrum is renovated. We are working on getting the answer to the question of kneelers.
Questions Discussed (continued) Are we going to replace the uncomfortable chairs that we now have in the Centrum? The plan is to have to replace the present chairs with new and comfortable seating.
Questions Discussed (continued) Lots of Discussion about “Enhanced Worship Experience” The more we discussed the Centrum and the more we learned we realized the importance of the most important components to an “Enhanced Worship Experienced Even temperature throughout Centrum and no air blowing on you A sound system that allow you hear anywhere in the Centrum Lighting that allow you to see the words in the hymnal, lighting of the baptismal font and spot lighting stations of the cross on the walls Comfortable seats
