Wesley Back on the Boards

After more than a year’s hiatus, Craig Gaulden Davis has been asked to resume work on a sanctuary for Wesley United Methodist Church in Evans, Georgia. Design efforts were suspended in late 2008 as the church elected to assess the impact of the economic slump.

CGD is now at work on contract documents for new worship space that will seat just under 1000 persons in a traditional setting and renovations that will improve the environment for contemporary worship. The spaces are connected by new public spaces, both inside and outdoors.

Augusta contractor R. D. Brown has been selected as the church’s construction partner and, pending formal go-ahead from the congregation, is expected to start building in late 2010. The project should be complete in early 2012.
