SANCTUARY REVISION RECOMMENDATION COMMITTEE UPDATE: Tim Cook gave a report with a recommendation by the committee. Based on a $3.5 Million building budget, the schematic phase is 20% of the fee of 6.25% or $43,750. The fee includes programming, conceptual design and engineering conceptual site development and interiors. Deliverables include rendered site and floor plans, exterior elevations and 3D imaging, both exterior and interior of the designs. Still rendering can be extrapolated from the 3D. Scheduling takes about 6-8 weeks to complete. Site work design – The proposal is for $17,900 for all the work. The initial concept phase is proposed at $1,400. The bulk of the bee is in the sewer and storm water documents. It was voted and approved to move forward with this recommendation contingent on it being taken to the Church Business Meeting and finding out where the money to pay for these fees could come from.
