Solomon Awards 2009
Visioneering Studios was honored again this year with multiple Solomon Awards at the annual Worship Facilities Expo conference in Charlotte. Following up on wins in 2007 (Most Innovative Church Facility and Best Overall Church project for Crossroads Christian Church in Corona, CA) and 2008 (Best Church Architect for Central Christian Church in Beloit, WI), Visioneering swept the Solomon Awards in 2009. We took home awards for: Best Overall Church Project and Best Church Design (2,001+ seats) for Mariners Church in Irvine, CA; Best Church Architect and Best Church Design (801-2,000 seats) for Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC; and Best Church Design (301-800 seats) for Northside Christian Church in Spring, TX. Our construction partner on Elevation Church, Cogun, Inc., also won a Solomon Award for Best Building Contractor for their work on that project, where we successfully used Integrated Project Delivery to complete the project. Mankin Media also won two Solomon Awards for their Audio, Video, and Theatrical lighting systems on our project for Southeast Christian Church’s Youth Building in Louisville, KY.
While it is nice to be recognized for projects we’ve done the most important thing to us is that in each case we were able to partner with dynamic churches and tailor a design to meet their unique DNA and serve their specific ministry needs and goals. We love working with churches who love reaching the unchurched…whether they have 5 acres or 100, whether they have 200 in attendance or 20,000, whether they are in a rural small town or a major metropolis, whether they are a church plant or a 100 year old congregation, and whether they are unknown in the “church world” or are a major national influencer. If their heart is on the unchurched and they have a vision and mission to reach them we want to be their first call. So if your church fits one of those categories and you are looking to renovate, build an addition, or start a new campus, give us a call.
