"This statement commends and recommends the work of The Church Architect. They diligently  worked with our Church from the time of the conception of our idea to the completion of our Project.

Mr. Hill's suggestions and ideas were instrumental in making us realize our needs and our potential.  He found ways to help us trim our budget, helped us to present the bank a feasible loan proposal and helped to keep the Contractors true to their obligations..."

We provide you the perfect partnership of
 a highly skilled Design Firm and a highly qualified Building Contractor

who will make your design a reality while respecting your budget!

Picture: Progressive ChurchAlthough good design is the key to a successful Building Program, you must have a good Building Contractor, who respects your budget, to make your design a reality.

Just as locating a good Design Firm is challenging, The Church Architect knows locating a good Building Contractor can be difficult and discouraging too. Many times budgets are exceeded at this stage when expenses or deadlines are not properly determined from the start.

Our staff only works with leading Contractors who have continuously delivered high quality construction within the expected budgets of our clients. Although the Church is NOT obligated to accept our Contractor recommendation, we are confident we can provide a Building Contractor who is committed to the overall successful delivery of your project and one who is acceptable to you and your Building Committee.

Picture: Berean BaptistUnlike the Design/Build approach where the Architect is hired by, and works for, the Contractor, The Church Architect realizes it is YOU, the leaders of the church, who are the client! The Church Architect is your Church's Design Professional and Agent working exclusively as your representative and on behalf of your Church. Unlike other firms who receive compensations back from a contractor, we receive no monies from the contractor. Because there is no conflict of interest, our professional recommendations are made to ensure your church receives a successfully completed project based on your needs; not the contractor's.
