Thousands of Elevation churchgoers are now gathering for services at Elevation Church's Lake Norman campus. Edifice, Inc. recently completed the $5+ million renovation for the church that included transforming the old 41,600-square-foot Palace Theater into the church's newest location.
"We needed to be in the building holding worship experiences at the first of the year (2014) to create capacity at our other locations, " shared Josh Blackson, Pastor of Operations and Expansions for Elevation Church. "This caused a very tight schedule."
A unique aspect of the project is that Elevation retained the company who originally built the theatre a decade ago, Edifice, Inc. to lead the transformation into Elevation's new campus. "Our knowledge of the existing building, coupled with our extensive experience in both traditional and non traditional church construction allowed us to lend our expertise to help Elevation achieve their worship needs." said Bryan Knupp, senior vice president for Edifice.
The old theatre can now accommodate over a thousand worshipers in its new 1,200-seat auditorium that boasts a stage and state of the art audio-visual systems similar to that of other Elevation locations. The transformed space also includes a welcome area, gathering rooms, and two children's stage areas.
