For over 14 years, HH Architects has partnered with Christ United Methodist Church in Plano, Texas in the development of a 14 acres “greenfield” site into a campus of approximately 179,100 sf. Through four separate phases HH Architects developed ministry space ranging from Education & Administrative offices, to a Family Life Center, and the most recent completion of a 1,200 seat Worship Center which received the honor of being the first church in North Texas and the first Methodist church in the state of Texas to receive a LEED Silver certification.
With HH Architect’s leadership and direction, CUMC was able to design a facility that served both the church’s ministry needs while not compromising on its desire to create a project that would encourage other faith-based organizations to pursue sustainability with their future construction projects for the betterment of the local community. “This building is not just for our church,” says Rev. Don Underwood, senior pastor. “It’s for those we serve in our growing missions, and it’s for the next generation. CUMC is always focused on building for the future, so we continually think sustainably for our children and our children’s children.”
