Lakeland Community Church

Catalyst Construction is currently in progress on a 30,000 square foot addition which will include a new worship, gathering, and office space. The project will also include expanded parking and renovations to the existing building. At the time that Catalyst was brought onto the project, Lakeland Community Church was (and still is) rapidly growing ministry that had purchased a building and done some renovation and addition work with another contractor that unfortunately didn’t work out well. Catalyst engaged and helped them manage a substantial budget. Church leadership had an ambitious vision for adding 30,000 square feet onto their church [...]

St. Peter Catholic Church

St. Peter Catholic Church in Slinger has been blessed with a faithful and generous membership throughout the ministry’s 150-year history. Catalyst Construction was selected through a qualification and interview process as the church’s construction management firm. The multi-phase project called for major renovations to the existing space including expansion of the sanctuary to accommodate additional seating for worship. In order to maintain the aesthetic of the original structure built in 1892, Catalyst procured cream city brick from a local supplier which was used for all of the project’s masonry. The full scope of the large-scale renovation also included a [...]

Christ Church

Christ Church partnered with Catalyst Construction to offer its congregants a multi-venue worship experience by designing and building a 35,000 square-foot addition to its main facility in Mequon, and entirely renovating the church’s Children’s Ministry. The main facility addition features a rooftop clerestory covering a large, central social gathering space which serves as the church’s “Main Street” by connecting the former lobby area to the new addition. The expansive indoor boulevard inherently offers a straightforward approach to wayfinding with directly connective access to the facility’s other worship venues, meeting spaces, and restrooms all in an area linked to the [...]

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church & School

The St. Peter Lutheran Church and School project was multi-phased and required a 12-month design process, the entirety of which included a new gymnasium, new classrooms, locker rooms, and a narthex. Catalyst developed a phasing plan that allowed the existing school to remain safely operational throughout construction. Catalyst also adapted the structural framing system to feature substantial segments of timber framing in order to accommodate Builders for Christ and the volunteer labor that stepped up to assist in construction via Catalyst’s Time & Talent program. This adaptation of design and process allowed for substantial cost savings and made it [...]

Immanuel-Trinity Lutheran Church

Catalyst Construction was selected as the Construction Manager for Immanuel-Trinity Lutheran’s new 15,000sf Worship and Classroom expansion in March of 2012. The conceptual design for the project included an overly large building with more scope than the owner’s budget would allow. Catalyst worked closely with Excel Engineering to develop cost models based on historical data that provided Immanuel-Trinity with the program space they required while staying within the overall project budget of $2.5M. Utilizing volunteer labor within the church ministry and the surrounding community as part of Catalyst’s Time & Talent program, the site was managed safely and efficiently [...]

The Ridge Community Church

Catalyst Construction renovated an existing commercial building into worship space, child care area, and church offices. Catalyst was awarded the Ridge Community Church project based on the results of an expansive interview process in combination with Catalyst’s industry reputation. The Ridge was initially planned as a ground-up project at a site in Greenfield, Wisconsin that Ridge was about to come under contract to purchase. However, after due diligence during the land survey, it was determined that the soil was not ideal for building. Catalyst advised Ridge leadership against building at the site as they felt it “wouldn’t be the [...]

Crown of Life Lutheran Church & School

The Crown of Life Lutheran Church and School project in Hubertus, Wisconsin, consisted of adding 28,000 square feet to their existing building, an addition that included a new sanctuary, fellowship hall, and a new classroom. The project took full advantage of Catalyst’s Time & Talent program and was able to engage a substantial group of volunteers that logged between 10,000-15,000 total man hours. Builders for Christ came onboard and helped throughout the construction phase and did the majority of the rough carpentry, roofing, siding, window install, and finish carpentry. Because of the level of volunteer help on the project, [...]
