First Presbyterian Church of Flint
This project entails a 7,849-SF renovation of the 3rd floor Children’s Ministry space at the First Presbyterian Church, located in downtown Flint. A custom designed play structure and motorized curtains that create additional classrooms are two of the cornerstones of this design by Elevate Studios. Elevate Studios brought EV preconstruction in on this project during the schematic design phase, and the project team has worked alongside the owner and architect to create a feasible and unique project scope within budget. In addition, this site features specific challenges. For example, the existing church has a cast stone façade, which has to be carefully protected throughout construction and demolition. New materials are passed through wide arched window openings.
