Building a modular church will take planning and effort.  Whether you are a brand new church, one that is embarking on its first building campaign, or an established church that is expanding its facilities, there are a wide variety of modular building plans available to fit your specific needs.

Modular Church Buildings Plans

But modular churches are not “one-size-fits-all.” They can be designed in just as many shapes and sizes as site-built buildings and use the same building materials. Even standard modular plans can be customized further with alternate layouts and special features.

Does your worship center need a new sanctuary? Are you adding classrooms for bible study, Sunday school or choir practice? Maybe your current facility lacks administrative space or a social hall. If you’re considering something more elaborate, modular buildings can be designed to meet your needs, whatever they may be.

Aside from churches, synagogues, temples and fellowship halls, modular construction supports a wide range of residential, commercial and industrial uses, both temporary and permanent.  Modular building plans for churches are available for customers who have narrow or corner lots or lots in problematic locations, such as flood zones or remote, hilly areas.

Most of the top modular manufacturing companies, such as Modular Genius in Joppa, MD help congregations across the nation take advantage of the savings available from building modular. This company can also serve as general contractor for all aspects of the construction process. Whether you need a small assembly building (720 S.F.) or a large one (over 14,000 S.F.), they offer many standard modular church floor plans that will get you started on creating a beautiful assembly building.

Advantages of Modular Construction

  • Faster completion:
    Delivery of modules from the factory is about 40% faster than conventional construction. They are delivered to your building site in nearly complete condition and have been engineered so that stairwells, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning and other systems are already in place, and ready for connection like building blocks. This means your congregation will be able to occupy its new worship facilities sooner.
  • Sizable savings:
    The cost of modular building construction is about 20% lower than conventional construction. One reason for this is that traditional construction is often affected by weather delays that can greatly increase labor costs. And building materials can be damaged or ruined by wind, rain and snow, with replacement materials adding to the cost. A modular manufacturer will build your worship facility inside a factory where weather cannot cause delays.
  • Technical innovations:
    Modules are built with wood, steel, or concrete; the same materials used in stick-built structures.  Innovations, such as “clear span” framing systems, allow for wide open interior spaces without the need for interior support columns. This is particularly valuable for churches, synagogues and assembly halls where the inside of the building needs to be open, spacious and flexible.
  • Environmentally friendly:
    Most new modular units are built with recycled steel, making them strong, fire-resistant and mold-resistant. The manufacturing process uses less energy and water, and waste is controlled with strict manufacturing controls. They also feature sustainably sourced timber, improved indoor air quality controls, better sealing to reduce heating and cooling costs, and better use of natural light through glass walls.

No matter what type of church design you have in mind, affordable modular church building plans are available that will honor the values and traditions of your congregation.
