Repurposing vacant “big box” facilities has become a trend for contemporary ministry inspired endeavors. Trehel has completed several of these renovation projects for our clients in recent years. The expansive buildings work well to be transformed into new worship venues due to their size, location, economy of scale and flexibility of converting open spaces.
The most recent example is the $2.9 million renovation project of an old Walmart building for 5 Point Church located in Easley, SC. The 80,698 square-foot facility is being converted into their newest location. Approximately, 43,000 square-feet will be utilized for worship, gathering and educational spaces, while the remainder of the building will be available for future expansions.
Signature Architects of Clemson, SC provided architectural design services for the renovation. Our Trehel construction project supervision team consisted of Jack Weber, Project Manager and Stan Lawson, Project Superintendent.
