Springboard Design

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church


Faced with a number of programmatic and facilities challenges in operating and maintaining their historic 100-year old property in Highland Park, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church turned to Springboard to help them master plan their goals, prioritize their needs and plan for phased implementation. Springboard led the Design Team through a number of project phases, from initial master planning and conceptual estimating, through design development and intelligent phasing, and ultimately to multiple construction document packages and administration phases.  Completed upgrades are numerous – they improve accessibility between the church and the social hall, add a new core of elevator, stair and restrooms, transform an old basement nursery into an additional rental hall space, and offer a new floor throughout the main church space.  The use of these spaces have proven so successful that they are anticipating being able to soon have the funds to complete the last phases of the project, which include renovating the primary rental hall and adjacent commercial kitchen.
