Foundation for Faith Capital Campaign

The Foundation of Faith Question of the Week.

How come the project is now costing $5 million when the original estimate was $3.5 million?

There was an original preliminary architectural extimate of $3.5 million for a single story building of approx. 11,000 square feet and purchase of the property for the site across the street from the church.

After reviewing these plans and receiving input from the parishioners, it was determined that more space would be required for immediate needs as well as for future growth.  The least expensive way to do this was to add a basement level.  The cost for this additional level is approximately $1 million.  This doubles the square footage, adding another 11,000 square feet , for about 33% in incremental costs.

The remaining additional $500,000 covers extra parking required by the Village, underground storm water detention, some increases from the original estimate once firm bids were received, technology upgrades (including security cameras sound systems, wifi)  additional property purchases and building bonds.

That brings the total cost from the preliminary $3.5 million to $5 million and the need to raise $1.5 million.
