Construction at Historic Friendship Baptist Ramps Up!

CDH Partners is the architectural design firm for the new historical Friendship Baptist Church. This drone footage was recently shot as construction at the new campus ramps up. Plans call for construction be completed in April 2017 in time for the church to celebrate it 155th year anniversary. Friendship is one of the oldest African-American churches in the city of Atlanta. The new 44,000 square foot church will contain state-of-the-art technology and a sanctuary that seats 500. The design for the Fellowship Hall will be flexible and contain a stage and room for over 450 people, while a smaller chapel will seat 200. The church will also contain educational and choir rehearsal space.

St. Elmo’s United Methodist Church

In August 2009, a devastating fire almost completely destroyed this historic church located in Chattanooga, Tennessee. With the help of CDH Partners and The Strauss Company, the church membership was able to rebuild a new facility using the three remaining walls. Today, this new structure provides the congregation with a much more suitable building for their ministry needs, which includes community outreach and education. In 2012, St. Elmo’s United Methodist Church received the Solomon Award for excellence at the Worship Facilities Expo.
