Located in Rapid City, South Dakota and a member of Outreach Magazines 100 fastest growing churches in America, Fountain Springs Church had leveraged their present facilities beyond all capacities. The church recognized the hunger to hear the gospel in their community and realized that multisite campuses would assist in this mission. In order to accomplish this mission, two projects would be necessary: a new East campus location and a major addition to the existing West campus.
Mantel Teter was selected to lead the church staff team through our process of visioning and discovery in order to design ministry spaces that will meet their objectives, while containing both projects within the church’s established and shared budget. At the beginning of the process, the church also engaged an owner’s representative and a general contractor to partner early in the process and assist with cost estimating and cost control.
The East campus project includes transforming a vacant lumberyard building into a large Atrium/Lobby space to access a new 550 seat video venue Auditorium. Renovations will also provide an Auditorium for Children’s Ministry and classrooms for nursery and preschool. All spaces are balanced to the new worship capacity. Additional staff offices are also included with the renovations. The exterior of the facilities intentionally blends and matches the architectural styling and materials from the existing West campus.
