Whether you’re considering remodeling, new construction, or an interior refresh, we can equip your community for success.

When beginning any construction project, one of the most intimidating and difficult processes is accurately predicting your final cost. Confusion often stems from the tension between what is required to complete the project and who ultimately orders and pays for it (assumes the risk). At Langer Construction, we first bring clarity by defining the types of costs associated with construction.

Recently, I was talking with a pastor and was fascinated by the variety of opportunities that ministries have in front of them. Church used to be predictable. It was on Sunday morning. People sat in pews. They brought their Bibles and dressed up and went to Sunday School and drank Folgers.

At the Facility Planning seminar every spring, we help churches discover their path forward for their community. Whether they’re putting on a new worship center addition, re-imagining their existing space, or starting from scratch with a whole new facility, each member of our Facility Planning team is equipped to help churches and religious communities navigate the troublesome, yet rewarding, process of a building project.
