Recently, I got to spend some time at one of our jobsites, Savannah Christian Church (SCC). The church is growing by leaps and bounds and is, in fact, one of the fastest growing churches in the U.S. We are constructing a 2,600-seat worship center with stadium seating and ancillary spaces that will be added to their existing facility.
One day last month, I donned my closed-toed shoes and hard hat to see and photograph an early morning concrete pour of the stadium seating. Getting to see how things are put together is one of my favorite things about our projects. I’ve been fascinated with the process for a long time, probably because my Dad, who is an engineer, exposed me at a very early age to the way things work. The congregation is also interested in the progress. They made our Superintendent take down the covering on the fence so that they could watch their dreams become reality.
Gary Nicholson and Adam Chegwidden are our jobsite superintendents, and Greg Kerr and James Walker are the Project Manager and Project Engineer (respectively). They make the job look easy. This team is a well-oiled machine that has been collaborating together for the last six years. Next time you are in Savannah, head over to SCC and take a peek into our construction world. You might be surprised by how intriguing it is.
