Bayside Community Church

Client: Willis Smith Construction
Owner: Bayside Community Church
Description: This project consisted of a 73,000 square foot addition to their existing facility in Lakewood Ranch. The congregation had outgrown the existing building which opened in 2010 and they conduct five weekly services with over 5,000 total attendees each weekend.
The added facilities includes a 2,500 seat sanctuary with stadium seating, 10 additional classrooms for the children’s ministry along with a Lagoon area and a large foyer gathering area. The sanctuary not only increased capacity, but is a state of the art performing arts hall including audio-visual, lighting, catwalk/tension grid system, capacity for special event lighting and sound, and a 39 foot ceiling height to truly provide an extraordinary experience.
