Master Project Scheduling

Church Design & Construction maintains an ongoing Master Project Schedule to insure all parties are informed on the current and future process. This aspect of our services is critical. Many congregations get very restless as the project moves forward without any physical site changes. It is imperative that the church leadership and the congregation be kept well informed on the realistic Master Project Schedule and its milestones.

A church development project is a long term endeavor. CD&C separates the development process into 7 separate phases. The following is an illustration of the 7 phases which include a total of “78” line items.
