New Birth Church
Southside was awarded the contract to construct an expansive new church located in Huntersville, North Carolina. The new two-story church includes a sanctuary consisting of a large balcony and stadium seating spacious enough to accommodate 2,400 people, classrooms, staff and conference rooms, offices, cafe/bookstore, dining/assembly area, commercial grade kitchen, and two elevators. A gymnasium with bleachers, basketball and volleyball courts, weight and aerobics rooms, locker rooms, a baseball field, and a soccer field will also be a part of the churches amenities. The exterior of the facility consists of a pre-engineered metal structure with brick veneer and EIFS, architectural metal roofing, and an elaborate open structure steeple. Additional scopes of work include all interior finishes, a parking garage for the Pastor, mechanical/electrical/plumbing systems, a sprinkler system, audio/visual equipment, food service equipment, asphalt paving and curb and gutter.
Grace Covenant Church
Southside and Utah-based architect Daniel Cook & Associates (DCA) teamed up once again to construct another unique church. Southside was in charge of renovating the current 32,000 SF facility as well as adding another 56,000 SF of new space. The expansion facilitates use of the building for church services, adult education classes, ministry program meetings, and elementary education through the Grace Covenant Academy (GCA). One entire wing of the redesigned facility is devoted to the Academy. The first floor wing contains kindergarten, first, and second grade classrooms, a nurse’s station, and restrooms. Backdoors in the kindergarten classrooms open into an enclosed interior courtyard and playground. The second floor of the GCA wing consists of remaining classrooms and a unique area known as the “Construction Zone”. The Construction Zone is an interior playroom geared toward younger children. Its name is derived from the toy replicas of construction equipment found in the play area.
