  • A new multi-purpose building for their larger worship services
  • Maximizing parking on-site
  • Additional parking across the road from the campus to provide a total 590 parking spaces
  • A community/counseling building to better serve the needs of the congregation and community.
As with most Church expansions, it is extremely important to look at phasing the project to minimize impact on current services.

Key aspects of project:
  • Several rezoning hearings over the years
  • Roadway improvements
  • Stormwater management
  • On-site package sanitary sewer pump station

Part of the approval process included presenting the church before the Zoning Board of Appeals for a Variance from the RSOD requirement in the zoning code.

Nations Ford Community Church - Charlotte, NC

The church campus expansion included a new 950 seat worship center. After further review of the existing parking lot it was determined that there were several inefficiencies. 20 additional parking spaces were added with minor cost to the existing parking lot, plus another 133 parking spaces - for a total of 430 parking spaces.
