Master Campus Planning
The Master Campus Planning process
offers a clear understanding of the potential of the
site as it relates to the vision of the church for

obtaining either competitive bids or negotiated
proposals and assists the Owner in awarding and
preparing the contracts for construction.
The Architect administers the
requirements of the Contract between the Owner and
the Contractor during the construction of the
Project. This is generally accomplished by observing
the work as it progresses, reviewing shop drawings
and product data information submitted by the
Contractor and reviewing and certifying the
Contractor’s applications for payment.
