Construction has been completed for an addition for Conroe-area Mims Baptist Church after Studio RED Architects created a comprehensive campus design early last year. Serving as a complement to the congregation’s main worship space built over 15 years ago, the new facility includes adult educational classrooms, a children’s preschool, and a banquet hall.
The design team from Studio RED Architects, led by Project Manager Micah Simecek, collaborated with Pastor Gene Kendrick and the church planning committee to create a design that maximizes the size and function of the new building while fitting within the church’s existing budget for the project. “After working closely with the church planning committee, we were able to present them with a range of available options based on scope and budget,” said Simecek. “From there, we devised a construction strategy that accomplished the most pressing needs immediately while maintaining the flexibility to review and adjust follow-up plans.”
With construction of the new addition complete, Studio RED and Mims Baptist Church have now begun design for a renovation of the existing fellowship building. Studio RED’s expertise in worship facility design has allowed them to create a plan for the campus to accommodate the needs of a growing congregation while incorporating the current aesthetic.
