Southwest Community Church Signs Architecture Contract
JOLIET, IL -- March 12, 2008 -- Aspen Group is pleased to announce Southwest Community Church in Joliet has signed an Architecture agreement with them.
The project involves the renovation of an existing 3,600sf barn structure on the church's new site. The renovated barn space will consist of open gathering spaces, a snack bar, cafe area, conference room, restrooms and mezzanine.
Architecture is the third part of Aspen Group’s comprehensive Firm Foundations process, which guides churches through a building project from initial planning to project completion.
Through step five of its Firm Foundations 7-Steps process, the design/build firm will skillfully create a facility that is customized to enhance ministry for the growing congregation.
Schematic drawings, acoustical analysis and geo technical reports, as well as design development drawings will be completed. Aspen Group architects and planners will use their experience and knowledge of societal currents, architectural trends and movements within the Christian community to design its new worship/fellowship facility.
Aspen Group is one of the nation's largest church-focused design/build firms with over a decade of experience serving churches and ministries throughout the Midwest from offices in Frankfort, Ill and Carmel, Ind. The corporation is based in Remington, Ind.
In 1999, Aspen Group founded Cornerstone Conferences, educational seminars that prepare church leaders for the challenges of construction. These conferences attracted other church construction-related companies and led to the founding of Cornerstone Knowledge Network (CKN). This network develops and disseminates meaningful knowledge that radically improves how church facilities impact ministry. Aspen Group is a principal member and director of CKN.
