As part of an overall expansion program Chase Oaks Church is planning to add 800 seats to an existing 1200 seat Multipurpose Worship Center. The new space will feature fixed terraced seating that will greatly improve sightlines to the platform and create a more intimate community centered worship experience. The area directly beneath the sloped terraced seating elements is efficiently utilized as a ‘wrap around’ Community Commons that is bathed in natural light by surrounding windows. The building expansion program also includes a two story addition to an existing Children’s Education Building. This project was begun by Stephen Pickard while with another firm.
