Our Building Committee and Leadership Council are pleased to jointly announce that we have chosen our architect and general contractor for our new facility at Smith Farm. Following a total of 17 hours of interviews with 4 architectural firms and 3 general contractors, we have selected Waldon Studio Architects of Columbia, MD and Arthur Funk & Sons, Inc of Lebanon, PA to form our design and construction team.
Pictured above are Ravi Waldon, Christa Kerrigan, Andrew Beyea and Amy Markle. Each is a licensed staff architect who will work with us as a team, and Amy will additionally serve as Interior Designer. Pictured below are Bob Funk, Ken Funk, Nathan Fry and Mike Arnold. Bob and Ken are licensed professional engineers who will serve as construction project managers, Nathan will be our estimator and building code expert, and Mike will serve as construction superintendent.
Both firms bring a wealth of church experience to us blended with a Christian approach to their work in conjunction with a focus towards designing for the Millenial and Centennial generations. During December we will formalize contracts with these firms and commence design of the new Carlisle United Methodist Church in early January.
Additionally we have selected Dawood Engineering of Enola, PA to continue working with us as Civil Engineer for Land Development. Pictured above is Tom Godfrey, a professional engineer who has completed our Subdivision Plan and represented us well before the Borough of Carlisle and South Middleton Township. Tom is also a United Methodist and actively involved at Zion UMC in York, PA under the pastoral leadership of Bruce Fensterbush.
