Stellar to build $1.8M Trinity Baptist Church Addition

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 26, 2016) — Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, will build a $1.8-million new connector building addition for Trinity Baptist Church.

The approximately 11,273 square-foot addition will be built on Trinity Baptist Church’s existing campus at 800 Hammond Blvd. in Jacksonville. The connector plaza will serve as the new front door and gathering area between the existing sanctuary and K-building. The new space will be designed as a family-room welcome center for church members, students and staff. It will also include a children’s check-in area, café, bookstore, play area, restrooms and hospitality area with seating.

“We've enjoyed working with Trinity Baptist Church over the past two years and look forward to future projects, including upcoming plans for their church, school and college,” said Richard Lovelace, Vice President, Stellar Commercial Group. “Our faith-based portfolio includes nearly 30 projects completed nationwide. It’s gratifying to work with these types of organizations, especially Trinity Baptist Church, which has such a positive influence on our Jacksonville community."

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for October 2 in conjunction with the church’s “Best Weekend Ever” event. Construction is projected to last six months with an April 2017 grand opening.
