First Presbyterian Church of Flint
This project included a 7,849-SF renovation of the 3rd-floor Children’s Ministry space at First Presbyterian Church, located in downtown Flint. A custom-designed play structure and motorized curtains that create additional classrooms were two of the cornerstones of this design by Elevate Studios. Elevate Studios brought EV’s Preconstruction team 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 featured specific challenges. For example, the existing church had a cast stone façade, which had to be carefully protected throughout construction and demolition. New materials were passed through 4’-0’ wide arched window openings.
