Building Project

Building Project

August 2017 – The Building Committee met to discuss the hiring of a construction project manager.  Initially, five contractors were identified to be invited to submit proposals.  A few others might be added later.  Interviews will be conducted in September with the objective selecting one by the end of September.  Also, the Committee reviewed options for storm water management facilities submitted by the Engineer.  No decisions were made because questions remain for the Engineer to answer.  Lastly, the Committee discussed displaying the plans at the Peach Festival and having a Committee member available to answer questions.


September 2017 – The Building Committee met three times in September to review the proposals submitted by candidates for Construction Manager (eight); and then to interview the top four.  A meeting is scheduled for early October to make a final selection.  The Construction Manager will work hand-in-hand with our architect to develop an efficient and cost-effective final plan. In other business, members of the Building Committee manned a table at the Peach Festival and spoke to many church members and others about the Ministry Center Plan; and the Engineer was given the go-ahead to finalize the plan for an expansion of the current storm water basin.  Also, the Capital Campaign Committee met to discuss follow-up letters of thanks to those who donated gifts to the Building Fund.  Church members should keep an eye out for the new Ministry Center bulletin board where current information on the building project and the capital campaign can be found.
