Corinthian Baptist Church
Located across from Mercy Health’s Corporate Headquarters in Cincinnati, this new home for Corinthian Baptist Church encompassed a 36,000 SF church and daycare facility complex. The ground level of the new facility includes a 1,000-seat sanctuary, vestibule/lobby, A/V production room, administration area, pastor’s suite, bridal suite, kitchenette, and ancillary support spaces including security office and nurse’s room with growth for future expansion. The complex also includes a daycare fit-out for the Community Action Agency’s Discovering Minds Learning Center, providing classroom areas for infant through preschool ages and a connected outdoor play area. The facility construction is as a pre-engineered metal structure on three sides with a connected conventional steel matching the PEMB finished panels.
Serving as construction manager, we coordinated all preconstruction and construction efforts, including cost estimating, value engineering, and coordination of owner-directed items. With a goal of 30% MBE participation, inclusion was an essential requirement for Corinthian Baptist Church and we met, and surpassed their goal with 48% MBE participation. In addition to ensuring the project progressed smoothly, we worked with the Church to create and organize events throughout the construction process to involve their congregation including a cross installation/topping out ceremony, column signing event, and completion celebration. A high-quality religious facility was delivered to Corinthian Baptist Church on schedule.
