Building design options for a new church include using a steel building kit or having an architect design the floor plan. Some steel building kit retailers do not provide construction services, so church leaders need to secure a contractor to construct the building.
Steel building options include open floor plans for large congregations or quaint buildings for smaller congregations. Options range from a 3,600 square foot building without any classrooms to structures with more than 35,000 square feet, seating for 750 worshippers in the sanctuary and 22 classrooms. Steel buildings require less maintenance and use less energy than some other types of construction.
