Our Team

Our Principals have specialized in the planning, design and construction of "church-related" assembly and educational facilities since 1971, with a variety of other experience intermingled through strong relational development. With a combined service of over 50 years, our Leadership brings the experience of service to nearly 700 projects, both large and small throughout the Southeast, generating a tremendous understanding of the unique requirements and criteria of many diverse clients and project types, and coordinating the many diverse knowledge groups that are necessary to the success of any development.

“I feel a special calling to serve, it is the best way to use my God-given talents to support and enhance the expansion of both God’s Kingdom and the World that he created. My Christian brothers and sisters are special to me, and during my years of service I have forgotten many of the buildings, but the people I continue to remember. I have found that Architecture is not just about designing buildings, it is about building relationships of understanding, trust, and respect that are longer lasting than any structure we can ever create.” Chris Malone

Supporting our well-experienced Leadership is a highly-skilled and knowledgeable Team of “in-house” Personnel that perform the day-to-day tasks of serving our clients and communicating with our specially selected and proven group of Professional Consultants. These are the "core", and Key Staff that seek to serve you...
