The Construction Manager at Risk 12Stone Church Lawrenceville is the first of the organization’s campuses. 12Stone Lawrenceville is the mother church of the Sugarloaf, Braselton, Buford, Snellville, and Hamilton Mill campuses.

Nestled within a heavily wooded screen of forest, this flagship church’s exterior harmonizes with the natural surroundings to create a beautiful space for worship and fellowship.

CHALLENGES

Planning for 12 Stone Church Lawrenceville began a year in advance of the project. The 68-acre project site required extensive preparation and site work prior to construction.

Van Winkle overcame the most notable terrain challenge, a 40-foot-deep ravine at the proposed building’s front, by erecting a 110-foot-long steel bridge to serve entry and egress to the church. Construction of this bridge enabled delivery of construction materials and equipment during construction.
