Milton Christian Church
Tate Engineering was engaged as Project Manager to lead the congregation of Milton Christian Church toward a more comfortable future. The decision to rehabilitate a two-hundred-year-old church or to relocate to a new facility proved too difficult for the congregation to answer on their own. Using consultative process, it was determined that the physical relocation of the church sanctuary would best meet the needs of the congregation. Together the project team successfully dismantled interior elements, which were saved for reuse, and relocated a major structure to an adjacent property.
"Tate Engineering care about their clients and they demonstrate this through their actions. I unreservedly recommend that you consider retaining Tate Engineering as your Project Manager." Shirley Francis, Chair of the Board, Milton Christian Church
