EFH Co. put its expertise to good work when it helped Creative Church turn a former counseling center just off 494 in Maple Grove into a new multi-purpose worship center.
EFH Realty Advisors facilitated the sale of the property to Creative Church, Inc., and coordinated with the City of Maple Grove on the acquisition of a conditional use permit. EFH then acted as design/builder for the project, beginning with the demolition of most of a 23,000-square foot existing structure. But 5,000 square feet of office and classroom space was kept intact, to be incorporated into the new building.
Work included the construction of new offices and video production facilities, a nursery and a worship area/auditorium, created using 55-foot high precast panels and 110-foot clear-span trusses, that also features a stage with state-of-the-art audio and visual systems and stadium seating for a capacity of 950.
In all this new facility provides Creative Church with 38,000 square feet of space in which to carry out its mission.
Work on this project began in November 2019 and, following a two-month delay due to the C-19 circumstances, was completed in September 2020.
Upon opening this new worship center in Maple Grove, Creative Church will minister out of two campuses, with a third one in Andover in the making.
