Finding the Right Construction Contractor Can Make Any Project More Manageable
Lutherans are known for being creatures of habit. They like to go to the same service week and after week. They love to sit in the same pew every time that they walk into the sanctuary. When it came time to replace the pews that were more than 30 years old, however, everyone needed to be more flexible.
During the first week of the replacement process the entire congregation still met in the sanctuary, but they sat in rows of folding chairs. Arranged in rows very similar to the way that pews had been, many members were still able to find their regular seats.
By the second weekend, however, the sanctuary was a construction site so the folding chairs were moved into the fellowship hall. Although there were plenty of places to sit, the chairs were arranged very differently from when they were in the sanctuary. Completely upsetting the apple cart, church members found themselves sitting next to people who they had never met before. Talking to families that might soon become best friends.
Church Pews and Steeples Do Not Last Forever
Although they are used only on Sundays for most of the year, there comes a time when church pews, at least those with fabric cushions, need to be replaced. As part of the annual budget, church council members use funds from the building budget to make the needed updates. With the goal of matching the current architecture and also serving the purpose of providing adequate seating, the selection of new pews is a task that takes a lot of consideration.
Lutherans want to continue being their own kind of creatures of habit. They want to sit in their same pew week after week and share the peace with the same neighbors.
Construction can always be a challenge. Fortunately, with the use of prefabricated office space, warehouse partitions, and other kinds of modular offices, many jobs are not as difficult as they need to be. When, however, you are looking at the redesign or the update of a specific kind of space like a church sanctuary, there are not always many prefabricated options that will work. Custom construction projects, however, can still benefit from the use of some of the same materials that are used in prefabricated office spaces. If, for instance, you are rebuilding the wall between the main sanctuary and the family cry room, some of the techniques that are used for clean room partitioning systems can be implemented.
In fact, approximately 90% of engineers, 84% of contractors, and 76% of architects use prefabricated or modular construction processes on at least some projects. In addition to the ease that these features can provide, modular constructions reduce energy consumption during the building process by as much as 67% and also reduces future energy costs for occupants.
The decision to build or renovate any space is a time consuming process, but if you find a way to make use of any kind of prefabricated office space materials you will be able to save both time and energy.
