CHRISTIAN ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES
Maranatha Custom Churches employs a full time, highly qualified design staff and drafting department with a licensed "In House" Architect. This assures a hands on approach in the development of the wants and requirements of each and every church. Each church is assigned a "Job Captain" that works directly with the church liaison. This department is also responsible for the checking of the various building codes and complying with the State and Federal regulations. We use our state of the art CAD (computer assisted drawing) system to help you bring your vision alive. Maranatha's design team will help you take your project from the preliminary design phases to the final construction documents.
SITE ASSESSMENT / FEASIBILITY STUDIES
Maranatha will help you evaluate your existing property or can assist you in evaluating a new site for your facility.
STRATEGIC MASTER PLANNING & PROGRAMMING
Maranatha has been doing something that has proven very successful for both our clients and our company. It is called a "Brain Storming" Session. We invite the building committee into our office in Jamestown for a day of intensive planning and research. This works well because you are away from all distractions. We have immediate access to our full staff and computers as well as hundreds of plans that we have developed.. We have samples and catalogs for almost anything that you could imagine. With today's technology we are able to provide you with 3-D drawings and renderings so you can see what your new facility will look like right from the start. You are an integral part of the design team! Together we can begin to develop a plan to serve your churches immediate needs as well as plan for it's future growth.
ACOUSTIC / AUDIO/ VIDEO SERVICES
Maranatha began offering this service to it's clients in 1994 when it was noticed that many churches being built did not have the quality sound that is so crucial for a new sanctuary. We are able, through computer enhancement, to evaluate your facility and improve sound quality and eliminate "dead spots" through the selection of speakers, amplifiers and control boards. We also offer video equipment for those churches that wish to enhance their ministry by this means.
The heart of our system is a heavy steel superstructure which enables us to span large distances without any interior columns. Maranatha employs its own construction crew to handle the erection of the steel superstructure and the super insulated panel system. This ensures both consistency and integrity of the building. Our construction crew is capable of handling your project from start to finish. We encourage volunteer assistance and use qualified subcontractors from within the church, when available.
Maranatha offers full or partial construction management services at a cost you can afford. At Maranatha we understand the importance of stewardship, but even more we understand the importance of protecting the integrity of the Church's witness as the Body of Christ.
