Embracing The Vision
We utilize a unique preliminary design process called a “CHARRETTE”, which is a thorough and highly collaborative effort that takes place over a three day period at the ministry site. This process allows design solutions to evolve quickly with the direct participation of your key ministry leaders, the project team from WCC, and real-time adaptations by the architect and his design staff. During this process, 75–90% of the preliminary design is completed, and the vision of the ministry is captured and translated into preliminary site plans, floor plans, seating diagrams, sketches, and exterior renderings. This package, once finalized by your team, will include a preliminary total cost estimate which is essential for a projects success. This completed charrette package then becomes an appealing presentation, enabling your team to effectively communicate your vision to the rest of the church body.
