“After months of talking, we are excited to see how you actually perform. The church appreciates having to only miss one class session as you had promised. Jeff and I heard nothing but compliments concerning the move.”

“Special thanks to Dow Smith Company for providing a quality building on a timely basis and under budget.”

“Old Jefferson planned to build a fellowship hall for some time. With little more than a description of how we wanted to use this new facility, we engaged the services of Dow Smith Company to help us in a Design/Build arrangement. Working with Joey and the selected architect, we solidified our design. From the planning process to the final inspections, Dow, Joey, Gary and the rest of the team were a pleasure to work with. Expenses were well controlled, quality was always held high, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We have a wonderful facility where our church family can gather, have some elbow room and grow.”

“The feasibility study provided detailed information on the existing facility, showing where there was ample space which was not being utilized to its fullest extent and where additional space should be added. The study was broken down by class and age groups, including Fellowship, Teen, Staffing and Parking Needs. The most impressive part of the study were the number of options provided using the existing facility. A long-term 10-to-15-year plan was given which allowed flexibility to build as growth occurred. Options for financial flexibility were also addressed. The team members of Smyrna Church of Christ found Dow Smith Company a very professional group of people to work with. Their Christian attitude was very much a part of this company business approach.”

Simply put, we partner with you to build your worship facility on time and within budget. How do we do this?
Our team of committed construction professionals has worked together for more than a decade. We approach every project with a single objective: to do what is best and right for the church and its congregation. We have worked with dozens of churches throughout Middle Tennessee to build, renovate or expand their worship facilities, and no two projects are alike. They all come with their own unique challenges.
From your initial dreams and visions, we help to develop viable concepts that provide you with clear choices. We then work with you and your stakeholders hand-in-hand to create a firm proposal, designs that make sense for your church’s needs and budget - all in an effort to create the best possible outcome for your ministry.
Transparency is the key to strong relationship. We are an “open book” on actual costs. We help you navigate design expenses and design decisions that directly impact construction costs. Our team believes in being forthright, prepared and accountable throughout the entire project.
Embarking on a construction project can be daunting. Where do you start? Does it make sense to renovate or build a new facility? Which permits and approvals are necessary? How long will it take to complete? How much will it cost?
Dow Smith Company provides solutions and we approach every project with a servant’s heart. When you aren’t sure where to begin, what next steps to take, or what type of project you can afford, call us. We will use our decades of church-building experience to help shepherd you through the construction process.
