Q: Will the Worship Center be complete for Easter Services 2016?

Q: Does the estimate include wireless and technological updates we need?

A: We will be adding certain wiring to the foyer and to the Worship Center in planning for additional renovations in the future. The cost estimate includes wifi in the foyer.

 

Q: Is the estimated cost enough money?

A: We believe so. The contingency was added, however, in the event that additional items may be discovered as we're finalizing our plans.

 

Q: Why is there such a large contingency added to the Phase 1a Cost?

A: We know from experience that there will always be additional, unknown items that occur during any construction. We added a large contingency just in case, even if we do not use all of it. We will not be adding scope to the project without notifying you.

 

Q: Where will guest parking be in the new plan?

A: We are not adding new areas for guests to park in Phase 1a, but we currently have guest parking areas. 

 

Q: How will new buildings help us to grow?

A: The life, vibrancy, and love that is to be found in our fellowship is one of the best kept secrets in Richardson. New, vibrant, relevant facilities can help reveal that secret. Significant facility activity on one of the busiest corners of North Dallas will speak volumes to those who drive by as they are attracted to the activity. At the same time, there are many other things being planned to attract new families to our church home.

 

Q: Are we still planning to build the chapel and the children's wing?

A: Yes. The chapel and the children's wing remain in our plans for the next construction phase.

 

Q: Will we still be installing a coffee bar in the lobby?

A: Yes. The coffee bar remains in our plans for this first phase of construction.

 

Q: Will this construction change any of our children's or students' programming?

A: Our construction will not change any of the programming for our children and students.

 

Q: Will the renovation include eliminating the steps at the rear entrances to the Worship Center?

A: The renovation will include a reconstruction of the steps leading to the rear entrances of the Worship Center. The architect will design steps with wheelchair access.

 

Q: Does the construction plan include new striping or a new setup for the small parking spaces?

A: In Phase 1a of the Building Campaign, the parking lot striping and setup will not change. In later phases, the parking lot will be modified with spacing in mind.
