At our most recent weekly Zoom meeting call, our sanctuary construction committee met with our domusstudio architect David Keitel to discuss the timeline of the project now that we are further along in the design development phase.
Just as COVID has affected so many aspects of our lives over the past year, it has also had an impact upon the construction industry, with increased prices for in-demand building materials including lumber. The impact of these price hikes and unanticipated code requirements discovered by our civil engineer have caused the architect to need to modify their design plans for the exterior of the sanctuary to keep our project costs in line and meet the code requirements. The interior plans remain the same.
In addition to the design revisions, our project timeline has also moved into early 2022 for a construction groundbreaking in January. Project completion is now set for September 2022.
On Thursday of this week David will be presenting us with some revised design concepts for our review and direction. Once our committee has reached consensus on the revised exterior plan we will be sharing it with all of you. In the meantime, I have attached the revised schedule for you to review and would welcome any questions you might have. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Craig Spery is the chair of the sanctuary planning and construction committee, a subgroup of the Property Use Group (PUG).
