Fall 2010 Building News

In August of 2010, after much deliberation, the building/planning committee recommended to the session that we entertain the idea of interviewing two local architects to determine if we wished to continue working with WKWW of Charlotte. There had been a lack of enthusiasm for the plan proposed by WKWW.  Two Chapel Hill architects were interviewed.  At our invitation, Keith Shaw of Shaw Design Associates attended a meeting of the building/planning committee. Following his presentation, the committee voted unanimously to discontinue our relationship with WKWW and to hire Keith Shaw.  A motion from the building/planning committee to hire Mr. Shaw was unanimously approved by the session.

A small group of Chapel in the Pines members began meeting with Keith Shaw to begin the work of a new design. As of October 21, 2010, a floor plan and exterior elevations are completed.

Four builders have been selected to bid on the proposed design. Those builders are: Riggs-Harrod Construction,, Resolute Building Company, Accord Contractors  and C.T. Wilson. The committee will receive the initial bids on November 23, 2010. After interviews are conducted with the four builders, one builder will be selected to construct our church. Dreaming Creek will provide the timber frame construction for the sanctuary and has already provided an estimate of $489,000.

The plan, weather permitting, is to begin construction by the end of January 2011. Construction should be completed in eight months time.
