Construction Update June 12, 2017
Exciting updates have been made over the past few weeks! A new entrance was opened in the west parking lot along 31st Street with a second entrance coming in the next few weeks, making parking and pathways to the building more accessible, and the south pond is nearly complete. Please be sure to review the diagram below for updated closures marked by construction fencing and pedestrian walkways to help you access the building. In the coming weeks we will begin to see:
- Construction of retaining walls in south pond
- Closure of east entrance on 31st street to all traffic except construction
- Relocation of existing sump pump and sanitary line
- Commencement of foundation underpinning for new auditorium
Construction Update May 24, 2017
Over the past few weeks, some significant changes have been made to the building and parking lot entrances to the church. These changes include closure of the west entrance to the West Parking Lot off of 31st Street and closure of Door 1. In addition, fences have been moved around due to the expansion of construction areas and the installation of retaining walls around the South Pond.
Please check out the images below for current section closures as well as new walkways that have been added to help all of our congregants get to and from the building easily and safely. Check back here or on signage around the building throughout construction for regular updates. Please note the legend on the top left of the image to help you identify what you are looking at.
Pardon Our Dust! Construction is under way.
While we officially commence construction following our April 30 groundbreaking ceremony, as you join us this weekend you will notice the beginning stages of our 18-month journey to substantially expand our parking lots and add a brand new contemporary worship auditorium among other improvements. Please bear with us through accessibility and parking changes, and know we are on this journey together to root our lives more deeply in Christ for the sake of others. Please make note of the following:
Construction fencing is erected on all parts of the site
Both the south and west parking lots will remain accessible for now
We will maintain entrance and exits off of both 31st street and York road for the time being
Dewatering of the pond closest to 31st street has begun
Work on our new sewer line will start the week of April 24
Because of the construction fencing, please proceed slower than usual and watch for road signs around the site
Our Campus Assurance and Safety Team (CAST) members will be in all parking lots with orange vests to ensure safety and help direct traffic
CONSTRUCTION TO COMMENCE FOLLOWING GROUNDBREAKING
Over the next few weeks, you will begin to notice the mobilization of our contractors onsite with fencing put up in the west parking lot to prepare us for the beginning of our construction efforts. We will continue to post updates on this site throughout construction, so please check back often for the latest information.
Starting April 30, for the groundbreaking ceremony, the Choir Parking Lot and the sidewalk from that lot to Door 1 will be closed until the completion of our new addition. Following our groundbreaking, Door 1 and our Narthex will be closing on Monday, May 1. There will be convenient pathways from the Commons to the Sanctuary to ensure all of our church family has continuous access to our traditional Classic services. Accessibility for all ages, stages, and abilities will be available.
