Westlake Baptist Church
Design Innovation Architects (DIA) teamed up with Merit Construction Company to provide design/build services for Westlake Baptist Church. The site and Phase 1 structures had been designed by another architect, and as DIA started the work, it soon became clear that the original designs were not thoroughly analyzed. Thus DIA and Site Inc. were commissioned to produce a masterplan that would meet the congregation’ needs with detailed attention to long-range phasing of the various facilities, and to vehicular and pedestrian circulation.
DIA redesigned the interior of the Phase I building to make it more usable, and redesigned the exterior to fit within a tight budget. DIA’s work also included the construction documents and construction administration.
