Churches are truly unique facilities. There are many issues that are challenging to churches when it comes to meeting building codes. For example, planning for adequate parking, pedestrian traffic flow, life-safety issues and ADA access. Pitfall #2 occurs when your design solution is drawn by someone without church building experience. Building homes and commercial facilities is not adequate experience for designing a church. Avoid Pitfall #2 by working with a seasoned professional that recognizes the value of a baptistery AND soil borings.
