What Shape Should My Church Be?

There has always been the battle of the budget when it comes to designing and constructing church facilities. Sometimes there some really great donations and the facility can really be a dream facility. Other times, a congregation is looking for any way they can save money. There is a fine line between saving money short term and spending money or losing families long term. Some things we frequently do as a team is take prospective congregations into buildings that are "temporary" from traditional construction, and take them into some of our permanent facilities. By visiting different church facilities, seeing the flow of a room, making some noise to see how the sound will travel all good things to help a facilities team gt the most bang for their buck.

Some ideas for modular church construction:
1. Decide how high you want your ceilings: If this is a priority consider the 10' maximum modular or look at our MPanels panelized construction methods
2. Consider span: Wood construction can usually only span 30', if you don't want posts in the way of vision, consider steel clearspan modular construction
3. Consider Curb Appeal: If you don't want a plain BOX, consider alternative design choices such as offset modular design or NON-BOX design of modular systems
4. Sound Travel: Some great modular churches are working well because of sound design (in the walls, on the walls, and floor covering)
5. Noise Control: Restrooms inside are great, but a distraction, consider placement so they are accessible but not distracting to the flow of the sermon

We all know that there are some really great looking modular church buildings around, or perhaps you did not know they were modular.
