Saving Money on Your Church Remodeling or Building Project: Life Cycle Savings

We know that church leaders are under pressure to save money, whether they’re starting a building from scratch or undertaking a church remodeling project—and we want to help.

What are some specific things to consider when you’re trying to save money on a church building project? In this post, we continue offering ideas on ways you can lower costs.

Life Cycle Definitions and Calculations

Let’s consider the potential savings in what we call life cycle costs. These reflect the true expense to use a product over time. To calculate this cost, you take what is paid for a product and divide it by the number of years you expect to use it. You should always calculate the life cycle cost for bigger elements in a church remodeling or building project, such as the roof, flooring, HVAC systems, lighting, etc.

In our post previous on up front savings, we mentioned the possibility of installing cheaper olefin carpet. This less expensive grade carpet likely will wear out faster and end up costing you more over the life of your church building, since it will need to be replaced more often. On the other hand, if you invest up front in a stronger nylon carpet that will stand up to more years of wear, your overall cost per year of use is less.

A Downside of Choosing Longer-Lasting Church Remodeling Materials

The above example doesn’t mean that you should always choose a higher-quality, longer-lasting material. If, for instance, you decide your objective is to have a maintenance-free church building, you could end up increasing your up-front costs to the point where you’d no longer be able to afford as large a building as you’d originally intended. Having less square footage could then become a problem later on, as your church grows.

Checking Calculations for Life Cycle Use

Another calculation pitfall, based on our experience with many church remodeling and building projects, has to do with getting the correct figures for various payback periods.

Many companies calculate life cycles for their products based on usage that’s just not comparable to what a church building typically sees. For example, a manufacturer might present a spreadsheet that shows how much you’re going to save with an LED lighting system—but it’s probably based on what happens with a typical office building or school. The problem is that schools and office buildings get heavy use for eight or more hours a day, five or six days a week. That means 40 to 50 hours of use each week.

However, churches aren’t used that heavily—even active ones. Say those lights are in your worship space. It’s difficult to imagine they’ll be used more than 15 or 20 hours per week—less than half of the calculation for a school or office environment.

This means it will actually take more time for you to realize the life cycle cost savings claimed on the spreadsheet. What they claim would be a five-year payback might actually be 15 years—which is a significant difference to be figured into your church building budget. It could turn out that you actually don’t need the highest-quality light bulbs, which would cost a lot more up front.

Stay Tuned for More

Speaking of light bulbs, the next installment in this series will focus on energy savings for your church remodeling or building project.

Saving Money on Your Church Building Project: Up Front Savings

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is: How can churches save money on their church building project? Starting with this post, we will be discussing just how to do that over the course of the next several articles. We’ll break down some ways churches can save money—and look at the impact those ways might have on the true value for your church and its vision for ministry in your community.

Up Front Church Building Savings

Let’s start with what we call “up front savings,” ways you can save money with the design of your church building or remodeling project. For example, you can choose vinyl siding for the exterior of the building, rather than brick or stone, and you can vary the thickness of that siding. You can choose a lower-cost carpet or a less expensive HVAC system. Every item in your church building will have different quality grades that you can choose from—even down to the doorknobs and light switches.

Up Front Savings are Limited

One important element to understand, however, is that choosing less expensive items will only gain you up to about 10% savings on your total church building construction cost. So, if you’re working with a $1.5 million budget for your new construction, you’re only going to save about $150,000 by choosing cheaper materials. $150,000 is still a lot of money, but if you’re hoping to save half a million dollars on the project, cutting costs on materials isn’t going to get you there.

Unintended Consequences of Up Front Savings

There are two other considerations when trying to create up front savings. The first is how products of lesser quality will hold up over time. For example, if you choose a carpet made from olefin (standard for residential building construction) instead of a higher-grade nylon carpet, your carpet is likely to wear out and need to be replaced much more quickly. This is because olefin is not as durable, while more costly nylon carpets are designed to handle the higher volume of foot traffic found in public or commercial buildings such as churches.

Another important consideration is your church’s reputation in the community. Does your community have simple, straightforward buildings without a lot of panache? If so, you can construct a less-lavish church building, which will fit into the community ethos and people will feel comfortable attending your church. On the other hand, if your community values the finer things in life and you construct an inexpensive church building with cheaper materials, it might fail to attract and keep the people you are trying to reach.

Options are Plentiful

As you can see, when it comes to managing costs there are many possible paths and decisions to make, and there are consequences for every decision. In our next post on this topic, we will address the life cycle of materials and products and how they fit into the cost-cutting decisions you make.

Keep Your Church Building Interior Design Looking Like New with Proper Maintenance

Recently, we posted a two-part series on creating a successful interior design process for churches. Jennifer Snider, The McKnight Group’s interior designer, guided you through six important steps for a church building interior design program. (To read Part 1, click here; to read Part 2, click here.)

In this post, she adds a seventh step, which comes after the design and implementation process. It’s the best way to protect your significant investment in a church remodeling project or brand-new building.

Step 7: Invest in the Maintenance of Your New Interior

This seventh step is the key to good stewardship of your church building: maintenance of your new interior.

All those finishes, furnishings, and flooring will be subject to a lot of feet and fingers over the months and years ahead. Spills will happen, dirt will accumulate, shine will tarnish, scuffs will appear.

Which is why it’s essential to set up a maintenance plan as you are completing your church remodeling project or inaugurating your new church building. Good habits are best set at the beginning, and regular cleaning is critical to keeping your interior design looking new and fresh for as long as possible.

Spread the Word About Church Building Maintenance

One of the best ways to establish good habits is to spread the word about them. When you’re thinking about protecting your interior design investment, there are two important messages you want to spread.

First, you tell everyone in your church family that it’s OK—and actually necessary—to speak up about spills. The longer a spill stays on carpeting or seating fabric, the deeper it penetrates into the fibers and the harder it will be to clean. “Stain-resistant” doesn’t mean “stain-impervious.” Let everyone know it’s not wrong to spill (these will happen), it’s just wrong not to say something when it happens.

The second way to spread the word involves your church building maintenance crew. Whether they are a team of dedicated volunteers or part of your paid staff, your maintenance team needs to know what you have learned about your various fabrics, finishes, and flooring during the interior design process.

All information about cleaning and other maintenance needs to be passed on from your interior design team to your maintenance team, so they can benefit from everything you have learned.

Maintaining Your New Interior Is Good Stewardship

Your church building interior design forms a critical part of your church vision. To outside eyes it may not always be obvious that you’ve invested in maintaining your church facility, but it will certainly be obvious if you neglect to maintain it. Investing time and energy in maintaining your new interior design is also good stewardship of the financial contributions that paid for those new furnishings, finishes, and flooring.

We hope this series of steps has been helpful as you think about the interior of your own church building. For other helpful church building and remodeling tips, take advantage of our i3 webinars. Simply visit our website and sign up—they’re all free.

Steps for a Successful Church Building Interior Design Process, Part 2

This post concludes our two-part series on how to optimize the interior design process for your church (for Part 1, click here). Whether you’re remodeling an existing church building or undertaking new construction, the interior design process has its own components and time frame that need to be addressed.

Jennifer Snider, our staff interior designer, has put together a series of critical steps for a successful church interior design project. We pick-up her suggestions with Step 4.

Step 4: Consider Inviting Professionals into the Process

The extent to which you involve professionals is going to depend in part on the size and scope of your project.

Obviously, if you’re erecting a new church building, you’re already involving professionals like The McKnight Group with the construction. But it also makes good sense to tap our design team to help you along.

If you’re just doing a church remodeling project with interior design components, you might be able to handle that on your own. Still, professionals are going to offer resources you would not necessarily have access to or know about. They can provide ideas that might not have occurred to you and they can help you make the right decisions and keep you on course.

Thus, professionals can often save you both time and money, helping your project stay on track, on budget, and in alignment with your church’s vision no matter how big or small the project is.

Step 5: Explore Possible Interior Finishes for Your Church Building

One helpful way to start this process is to do site visits and collect ideas. This can be done very methodically, but don’t miss out on any random-chance opportunities that come your way. You want to collect ideas, both of things that you like but also things you don’t like, as it’s sometimes useful to identify design elements that aren’t going to work for your church’s vision.

Your site visits could be to other churches that minister in a similar way you do—or want to do. But there are other types of places you can visit as well. For example, if you’re planning to add a café, visiting coffee shops can help you understand how interior finishes affect the feel and use of a space.

Think also about the people you’re trying to reach with your church remodel or build, then go where they go, so you can see what speaks to them. You can take pictures with your phone, and bring back images to your interior design team for consideration.

Step 6: Execute Your Church Remodeling or New Building Interior Design Plan

This step is what most people think of as the entire process—but you can see it’s really the culmination of all the steps preceding it.

You’ll need to order materials and coordinate between the different subcontractors you hire, so that painting and flooring happen in the correct order. Make sure you have all the right people in place at the right times, so that everything can happen as efficiently as possible.

Also, if you’re undertaking a church remodeling project, you’ll need to consider how to continue worship and other ministries during the renovation phase. This can be frustrating for everyone, so warn both leaders and participants far in advance. You want to prepare them for the changes and remind them of the reason you’re doing all this work in the first place: your church vision to reach people for Christ.

But Wait: There’s More

So that’s it—but not really. There’s actually one more step that’s just as important as the first six, and we’ll reveal that in our next blog post. While you wait, feel free to visit our website and sign up for any of our free i3 webinars. We promise they’ll be filled with helpful information, just like this post!

Steps for a Successful Church Building Interior Design Project, Part 1

Whether you’re constructing a new church building or undertaking a remodeling project, the interior design component is deserving of its own process and time frame. To help you understand the critical steps you should take, we’ve invited Jennifer Snider to share her expertise in this area.

Jennifer Snider is the McKnight Group’s Interior Designer. She has been with us for over a dozen years, working with more than 75 churches to successfully create interior designs that work.

Jennifer suggests there are some critical steps to a successful church interior design project. In part one of this series, we present the first three.

Step 1: Define Your Vision

Wisdom teaches us at a young age that if you don’t know why you’re doing something, you can easily get off track. This is especially true when it comes to interior design. If you aren’t focused on your church’s vision for the project from the start, you are likely to create an interior design that’s based on your own personal preferences rather than the image your church building needs to convey to guests and members alike.

Instead, make decisions that are outward and mission-focused, rather than focused internally. Each step of the way, these choices need to reflect the new church vision that sparked the need for a building or remodeling project in the first place.

Step 2: Assemble Your Interior Design Team

A team should consist of three to five members, depending on the extent of the project and the areas involved. If, for example, your project includes children’s spaces, you might need a subset of people who will be specifically focused on the ministry needs for that particular type of space.

Select team members who understand that your church vision must override their personal preferences for interior design. Consider who in your community has a heart for ministry and an understanding of how the look and feel of spaces can impact guests. Other reasons to keep the group small are to help everyone stay on task and make decisions in a timely manner.

Step 3: Create a Master Plan for Your Church Remodeling or New Building Project

When you’ve got your team assembled, start with the big picture. Determine the entire scope of the project, as you’d like it to unfold. When you set the sky as the limit, you allow all the components to get out on the table, and avoid missing anything that’s important. Then you can get down to the more challenging work of figuring out what works within your budget and creating a timeframe for completing the most critical elements first by prioritizing phases for your project. 

Step 4 will assist you with your master plan, so stay tuned as we cover the rest of Jennifer Snider’s tips for completing a successful church interior design project in our next blog post. While you wait, take a moment to sign up for our next free i3 webinar by visiting our website. Tips like the ones in this post came from a past webinar, which gives you a sense of how helpful they can be!

Feasibility Studies: Getting Your Church Building Project Off to a Good Start

When it comes to church building or remodeling, we often post about the importance of getting things started the right way. We’ve even told some cautionary tales about the necessity of involving church building professionals in your remodeling or new construction conversations right from the start.

One of the best ways to do it is with a feasibility study.

What Is a Feasibility Study?

It’s basically a professional analysis of a proposed project—a close look at a church remodeling or new construction plan. Feasibility studies address whether the project is technically possible, whether it can be successfully completed within the projected budget, and whether it will meet the specific needs of a church’s vision for ministry within its community.

Naturally, feasibility studies come at a cost— but to borrow from a familiar adage, often you need to spend money to save money. It’s much better spending some dollars up-front to make certain that a plan will work than discovering halfway through that it can’t be completed the way you’d originally intended.

How Much Might a Church Building Feasibility Study Cost?

The cost of a feasibility study varies, depending on how complex your building plans are and how much detail they require.

For example, if you don’t already own the building you’re looking to renovate, we might do feasibility studies for Building A and Building B so that you can compare the costs of the two resulting church structures. This approach would be more expensive than if you were simply looking to remodel an existing church building and needed a feasibility study for that existing church property alone.

Generally, we estimate feasibility studies to cost anywhere from $2,500 to $7,500.

Some churches prefer to go all in and create a full schematic design of a church building or remodeling project. This includes scale floor plans, site plans, and 3D renderings of what the finished church building might look like. Depending on the size and scope of your project, a full schematic design can range from $7,000 to $20,000.

Begin with a Low Cost Consultation

Now, spending even $2,500 can seem like a lot when you’re not sure what direction to take. This is why we are always willing to do an initial site visit and consultation at little to no cost.

Depending on where you (and your proposed church building) are located, we might ask that you cover our travel expenses and time for the visit, but we are willing to give of our expertise for an initial conversation because we believe very strongly in the importance of making good decisions right from the very start.

So, if you are in the beginning stages of a possible church remodeling or construction project, or are perhaps considering the purchase of an existing building, please contact us today. Let’s talk about doing a site visit together so we can help you understand whether the proposed building or project is in line with your church’s vision.

This is, of course, why we also offer our free i3 webinars. We believe it’s important to give church leaders all the resources necessary to help them make the best decisions possible.  Simply visit our website and sign up.

Church Building Flexibility: Think Multi-Use

We all depend on tools to be functional. And often, to get the most use of our tools, it’s wise to have a flexible perspective to using them. As psychologist Abraham Maslow said, “If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”

We see church buildings as a tool for your ministry and similarly, problems can arise when you think about them in just one way. If you aren’t careful, your church’s ministries can actually be defined by the shape and size of your building.

Gaining Flexibility with a Multi-Use Church Building

One of the best ways to ensure your church facility is a functional tool for your many ministries is to design it for multiple functions. In addition, multi-use spaces offer a much better return on your significant investment than a series of single-use ones. This is especially true if you’re in the early stages of the growth of your church, or the early phases of enlarging your building campus.

Yes, sometimes single-use spaces can be useful, required or culturally too much of a paradigm shift. But when you make your church building as flexible as possible, you allow multiple ministries to take place over the course of an entire week. That’s a lot better use of your investment than to just let your building sit empty except on Sundays.

Embracing Interdependence for Your Church Groups

Planning your church building space with just one group in mind can really limit your ability to star new ministries in the future. Instead, gather your various group leaders together and talk about what each group needs out of your church remodeling or construction project.

You might find that many of their needs complement each other, and that many of those groups could actually share a space due to their similar requirements. A single meeting space could get used multiple times over the course of each week, yet you would only have one space that needs to be cleaned and maintained each week (and over the years to come).

Being Flexible with Your Church Remodel or New Construction

We’ve worked with a lot of church leaders over our 40-plus years of building churches. Some started out thinking as Maslow talks about—viewing everything as a nail. However, we’ve been able to show them the advantages that come with multi-use buildings, which cost less because you need less overall square footage to meet multiple needs.

In fact, in our i3 webinar series, we talk a lot about the ways in which we share ideas, insight, and innovations (“the three I’s”) with church leaders. We want to help you maximize your investment in your church building, making it the most functional tool possible for ministry.

We invite you to take advantage of our webinars—they’re free, after all—to learn more about maximizing your ministry’s biggest tool—its church building. Simply visit our website and sign up.

Engage Church Building Professionals Early: Another Cautionary Tale

Over the 40 plus years we’ve been in business, we’ve seen all sorts of leaders make any number of important decisions about their church. It comes with the territory—there are so many options to be considered when one undertakes a church remodeling project. The daunting number of choices also means that if you’re not a professional in the church building field, you can sometimes make costly mistakes.

Our vice president of architecture, Philip Tipton, has been sharing some cautionary tales. In this post, his story illustrates the importance of bringing in professionals early in the church remodeling process.

Church Building Assessments and Feasibility Studies

One piece of advice Philip often gives prospective clients is that it’s never too early to involve professionals in a church remodeling project. A church building expert, whether it’s The McKnight Group or not, can assist your church’s leaders with money and time-saving advice.

We’ve conducted numerous assessments and feasibility studies as part of the early design phase to determine multiple remodeling approaches and which one best fits a church’s vision. The scope of work often goes beyond the building itself. There are also zoning implications, utility availability, and many other factors, from slopes to sidewalks, that need to be considered.

Given the complexity of some church remodels, we’re only too happy to answer questions of all types in order to help church leaders avoid costly mistakes.

A Church Remodeling Cautionary Tale

One such mistake amounts to our next cautionary tale.

The church leaders in this story found what they thought would be the perfect church building for their renovation project. The two-story building had been a store up to this point, and one of the selling points for the building was the hill upon which it was built. Both levels of the building opened “to grade,” which means that it had external entrances on two levels.

The church’s leadership bought the building and then engaged us to undertake their church remodel.

The problem was that the building had been built for “mercantile use,” which meant the top floor had been designed to handle only 40 pounds per square foot. That’s fine for a store, where individuals and small groups of shoppers wander around a large open space.

But the church leaders envisioned an adult worship space on the top floor, which was rated at far less than the 100 pounds per square foot required for “assembly use.” Think about it: When you’ve got a worship space filled to capacity with people in chairs or pews, that’s a lot more weight to support than what most retail settings experience.

The church leaders got the bad news once the building had been inspected. We had to tell them that every single second-floor bar joist in the building would have to be reinforced in order to support the required additional weight.

As Philip puts it, that additional expense “was almost a project killer.”

Consult Before You Invest

This is why we say that you can’t involve church remodeling experts too early in the process. When you are first starting to envision a church building project, that’s the time to bring in the professionals.

We’re happy to help you avoid costly mistakes that can potentially drain resources and keep you from focusing on your church’s vision. It’s also why we share our i3 webinar series for free (simply visit our website and sign up)—we want churches to succeed in their building projects, not become the next cautionary tale.

A Cautionary Tale About Keeping Your Church Building Finances Flexible

We don’t often quote scripture on this blog but that doesn’t mean we don’t think about it. Since our mission is to support church leaders with their church building and renovation projects, there are some scriptures that speak directly to our ministry.

One of those is Luke 14:28, where Jesus says, “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?”

It’s hard to image better guidance for church leaders as they prayerfully consider what kind of church remodeling or new building project they can truly afford.

Be Realistic About Church Building Costs

Philip Tipton, vice president of architecture, says this about church finances today. “My heart breaks when we receive these phone calls occasionally: A pastor, a leader that’s hoping to build a church building for $50 per square foot or $70 per square foot, and we really have to break the bad news that that’s not reality anymore. It’s not even possible.”

As we discussed in a recent post, the realistic range for a new church building project here in the Midwest is $200-$250 per square foot. Other sections of the country might have different costs—some lower and some higher.

Understand That ‘Smaller’ Doesn’t Mean ‘Less Expensive’

Choosing to start with a small part of a larger church remodeling project isn’t always the best solution if money is tight either. That’s because there are economies of scale that come with larger projects.

If you have to cut a door into a wall to get from room to room, the cost of cutting the hole, re-supporting the wall, and installing the new door, frame and hardware is a fixed cost regardless if you are making it a room for a one-person office or a classroom to seat forty-nine.

Therefore, a piecemeal approach to your church renovation or building project means the cumulative cost over time may more than offset the cost to finance all the work, all at once. However, taking out a loan for church building today is a serious topic, and borrowing money should not be automatically accepted or dismissed without carefully considering what is best for your church.

Be Flexible About How You Finance Your Church Remodeling and Building

Estimating cost is only part of the equation. Church leaders also need to be flexible in setting goals for their church financing. Here’s another of Philip Tipton’s cautionary tales that illustrates the point so very well.

Several years back, there was a very large church that, frankly, could afford to do a lot.

This church’s leaders had made a promise to their congregation early in the planning process, saying that they would not start any projects until they had commitments for one-half of the needed funds; the other half would be financed through a loan. In other words, they wanted 50 percent committed in their church financing pledge campaign.

A problem arose, however, when they had a very successful campaign, yet only raised pledges for 47 percent of the cost of the church building project. At that point, they could not get to 50 percent.

We encouraged those church leaders to consider financing the last three percent and get started on the project, but they felt they couldn’t. They believed they had to honor the commitment they made to the congregation to the letter and couldn’t be flexible on that point.

Unfortunately, this all took place before the 2008 recession when inflation was high. It took them six months to raise that other three percent and, during that time, inflation also went up three percent.

Even though they raised the needed percentage, they found they were still three percent short due to rising construction costs. As a result, at the end of three years, when their campaign had run its course, the church voted to move forward with the cash they had in hand. The three-year delay cost them $500,000.00 in construction cost and denied them the ministry space they needed for another three years.

The moral of this story is that financial flexibility is important. Setting an arbitrary goal can cost you in the end. Covering the initial three percent through a loan would have meant a very small monthly mortgage increase for that large, healthy church.

How Too Many Committees Might Spoil Your Church Building Project

If you’re a church leader, you probably spend a lot of time dealing with various ministry teams or committees. Whether you’ve got committees to chair, manage, or attend, you likely work with numerous groups of volunteers who are helping your church thrive and grow.

Committees are sometimes necessary, and are sometimes great—but they can also be a problem.

The adage “Too many cooks spoil the soup” can apply when you have too many committees working on your church remodeling or building project.

Every Church Building Project Needs a Leadership Team

The McKnight Group’s church architect, Philip Tipton, has accumulated numerous stories—often cautionary tales—about churches that have had varying approaches to committee responsibilities. Philip offered some good advice during a recent free i3 webinar.

You probably won’t be surprised to read he believes a church building project will work best when the church designates a single committee to handle the task.

A single committee makes it a lot easier for a church construction company like The McKnight Group to interface with your church and understand its needs and priorities.

When the members of your committee are authorized to communicate with members of our team, it helps keep the project moving forward and the marching orders synchronized.

The Pitfalls of Multiple Committees

Now for one of Philip’s cautionary tales. There once was a church that had a long-range vision committee. That committee developed the idea of a church remodeling project, then handed its vision off to the phase-one building committee, which got the project started and hired a building contractor.

Problems occurred partway through, however, when the phase-one building committee completed its work and handed the project off to the finance committee.

The finance committee had not discussed the long-range vision or developed the design. Nor had it been involved in hiring the building contractor. It had the power of the purse, but hadn’t been included in the vision or the reasoning behind the decisions that had been made so far.

The contractor, on the other hand, experienced mental whiplash when trying to communicate the church renovation project to people who only cared about the bottom line.

And that wasn’t all. Later, the finance committee handed off the project to the interior design committee to oversee the finishing touches, so there was another committee that needed to be included in the process.

Every Church Construction Project Needs One Leadership Team that Understands the Mission

We hope this story illustrates why we believe that one single leadership team should remain involved with a church building or remodeling project from beginning to end, vision through completion. As we said in another post, the makeup of this team is critically important to the success of your venture.

If your church needs to have a long-range vision committee, a phase-one building committee, a finance committee, and an interior design committee, that can work. But be sure to designate at least one member who serves on all the committees to help with communication and continuity. Or be sure to designate one member of each of those committees to be on the building committee.

That way the needs of each of those committees are represented in a single group that is empowered to work on the project from beginning to end, understanding exactly how your church vision will be realized in your successful building project.
