All Church Design - Renovation 801 - 2000 seats
Cedar Valley Church
Cedar Valley’s 1,800-seat worship center went from an inflexible 1980s worship space to a highly flexible and interactive worship space. The church can now accommodate choir, vocals, full band, baptisms, drama, and more with minimal effort.
Clinton Frame Mennonite Church
Ten years ago, Clinton Frame Mennonite Church moved into a new sanctuary with acoustical issues. When physical renovation proved too costly, Custom Sound Designs proposed the Constellation Acoustic System by Meyer Sound, incorporating discreet microphones, speakers, and digital signal processing to provide flexible acoustic profiles in a single space.
Red Rocks Church
Red Rocks needed an adaptive reuse of its new Lakewood facility in order to create space for their worship center, café, children’s ministry, and offices. Visioneering utilized much of the existing bones to create an environment in which the spatial storytelling is refreshingly relevant.
After acquiring a 40-year-old space for its new church location, Shepherd’s Grove turned to Mankin Media Systems to address acoustic challenges and introduce a state-of-the-art visual presentation.
Topeka Bible Church
Topeka Bible Church faced the challenge of renovating and retrofitting an old nursing home and turning it into new worship and classroom facility. The church also wanted to apply a unique video system not normally integrated. With the help of Mankin Media Systems, it all came together.
