Active Church is a life-giving and dynamic church that exists to move people from where they are to where God wants them to be. This church for most of its lifespan has been located at the Fremont Theater as they did not have a building that they owned. However, in 2022 the church closed escrow on a building that was owned by another church located at 3172 Johnson Ave, San Luis Obispo, 93401. Before moving into the building major renovations needed to be done as this was a very old building from the 1960s. The initial design of the auditorium specifically was completed to be able to hold service there, except it was not the final goal for that space. While talking with the head pastor, Adam Magaña, an opportunity to help with the redesign and renovation of the auditorium was made available. The author worked with Active church to estimate, contract, design, coordinate, schedule, demolish, and construct a new Auditorium for Church. The completed project provides a better atmosphere to help Active Church best use the space to achieve their vision.
