Feature Project: Amazing Grace Church

Interior Renovation

Another SWMW project that our team is proud to have completed within the last few years, is the interior renovation of the Amazing Grace Church building. This Lethbridge construction project is one that we remain exceedingly proud of to this day!

The Amazing Grace Community Church had a vision of improving and engaging their local Lethbridge community through youth members with positive, faith-based programming.

The leadership group of the church selected and purchased a building within the heart of the north side of Lethbridge. The location was selected by the owner due to their desire to impact positive change in this community through church programs and activities.

The SWMW team worked collaboratively with the owner's representatives on a design-build level to assist the church in achieving their vision. The project consisted of a complete interior renovation of the property's basement, main floor and mezzanines totaling 1,113 sq. m.

Project Details

Project Type: Interior Renovation
Sector: Institutional
Location: Lethbridge, Alberta
Timeline: Design phase began in 2014, with construction completed in 2017.

The Amazing Grace Community Church Interior Renovation project encompassed a comprehensive interior renovation of the church’s existing space.

The project spanned several areas of the church structure: 6,250 sq.ft. on the main floor, a 990 sq.ft. mezzanine, and a 4,750 sq.ft. basement. The primary objective was to modernize and optimize the facility to be able to meet the needs of the community in a meaningful way.

The revitalized floor plan now features a welcoming reception area, functional office spaces, a nursery, three well-appointed classrooms, a contemporary kitchen and café, a storage room, and an open assembly area with an elevated stage.

Notably, existing structural components within the unit were seamlessly integrated into the design to enhance efficiency and maximize usable floor space.

Key Takeaways

The age of the existing building presented significant structural and architectural complexities. However, the tenacious and confident team at SWMW, in addition to a collaborated effort with our valued sub-trades and the clients themselves, provided the solutions to overcome these obstacles head-on!
