After completing a three-phase master plan for this new church and school complex in Normal, Illinois, IGW provided comprehensive services for Phase 1, a 12,000 square foot, multi-purpose Fellowship Hall which also served as the congregation’s initial worship space. A full service kitchen, church offices, choir practice room, classrooms and meeting space completed the first unit construction. The Shining Lights Pre-School was also developed as part of the Phase 1 facility.
Within a few years, IGW designed and delivered Phase 2, a 14,000 square foot, 460-person final Sanctuary including chancel, sacristies, choir performance area and related storage. Utility infrastructure, access drives and a portion of the needed parking were addressed during Phase 1 with the balance of the parking, site lighting and landscaping completed as part of the Phase 2 work. A program update and preliminary design for Phase 3, the Education Wing, has been prepared and awaits funding.
