Birmingham Unitarian Church

Birmingham, Michigan

Birmingham Unitarian Church is undergoing a significant remodeling and renovation project.  The original facilities were designed by Minauro Yamasaki in 1956 as an open campus collection of buildings.  We are pleased to be working on this campus again, having completed the sanctuary addition in 1996. The current project includes remodel and redesign of the main entrance and lobby areas into an open engaging space. Interior spaces – social hall, restrooms, meeting rooms, classrooms –  have been remodeled with new flooring, paint, lighting. Barrier free access now connects all buildings on campus.  Improvements to parking, driveways, sidewalks and landscape have been completed.  Throughout the project, there has been a strong underlying emphasis on green principles and initiatives.

Elements included new pews, new flooring, new altar area, enhanced entrance and gathering space, upgraded lighting, sound and HVAC systems. The high-end finishes and oak paneling throughout the sanctuary and entrance area make this a stunning modernized place of worship. Phase I was valued at $2.2 million and Phase II at $1.7 million.
