Building Project Update – December 7, 2016

Architect Bryan Paulsen from ISG met with the Mt. Olive Building Committee on Tuesday, December 6. He presented four very preliminary schematic design proposals for our potential building project, utilizing as much information as possible from the original needs analysis and prioritization document, along with input from user groups that was collected in November. The committee asked many questions and received clarification on a host of details. Pros and cons of each proposal were discussed as well as possible modifications to the proposals.
As a result of the input from the committee, the architect will now prepare a second iteration of the schematic designs and another committee meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 13 to review and discuss those revised designs. At this point all proposals are much too preliminary to present to the congregation.  The committee will update the congregation on the designs, but not until they become much more refined, which could take many weeks to accomplish. It is clear that this is a very complex building proposal and it is the intention of the committee to carefully consider as many details as possible in refining a plan to present to the congregation.
Please continue to keep the committee and our congregation in your prayers for guidance and wise counsel, all to the glory of God.
