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.
Our team of committed 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. We work with dozens of churches. From your dream to draft plans to our firm proposal, we work hand-in-hand to create the best possible result for your ministry.
We’re an “open book” on actual costs. We will help you navigate design expenses and design decisions that directly impact construction costs. Our team believes in being forthright, prepared and accountable.
We provide solutions. When you aren’t sure where to begin, what steps to take, or what type of project you can afford, call us.
We take the pain out of the construction process.
The best results come when churches select their contractor very early in the process. Making this key decision first advances the project as design-build, the preferred method of church construction. Our early involvement allows us to come alongside each church leadership to develop cost with design, schedule with strategic master planning, and reality with vision. This approach creates a team of trusted advisers, construction professionals, architects, engineers and designers to partner with each church to equip them with a facility that meets ministry needs.
