This study involved preliminary programming, planning, and schematic design considerations to lay the groundwork for the St. Albert Alliance Church redevelopment strategy. Through the process, a variety of stakeholders were able to obtain a better understanding of priorities, potential, and development goals.

Time spent in close collaboration with the Building Committee and other group leaders was very insightful. The client selected an option that embodied a number of ideas central to their vision, particularly the ability to inspire spiritual encounters, drawing people closer to God and to one another in church life. This concept combines many of the advantages of several solutions explored, with a central fellowship hall and outdoor community plaza being two prominent features of the new building.
