Tellico Village First Baptist Church Additions
Financial considerations are always an integral part of any capital expenditure. The church congregation made plans to expand their existing facilities by adding over 21,000 square feet of floor space, including a family life center. At the time Elrod became engaged, construction cost estimates were significantly over budget, and the construction deadline required an already aggressive construction schedule.
Elrod performed a re-design of the structural systems and obtained significant improvements in the costs of the assemblies while under an abbreviated design lead time. Other cost savings were obtained by working WITH the general contractor without ever compromising quality expectations.
