Shades Mtn Baptist

Vestavia Hills, AL – MG&A was hired in 2001 to develop a Master Plan for Shades Mountain’s 30 acre campus with 300,000 sf of existing facilities. The church had undergone numerous additions during its 60+ years in its current location and a variety of areas needed attention. In 2003, Phase I of the revised master plan was completed and includes: (i) a new large front entry courtyard; (ii) a large outdoor playground on the rear of the campus along with a new central Welcome Center that connects all of the major ministries of the campus; and (iii) 45,000 sf of children’s facilities.  Phase 2 was completed in the Fall, 2008 and includes an extension of the commons through the main campus, a new student center and major renovations to much of the church’s education space.  Phase 3 is currently underway and includes additional renovations of education space and the Christian Life Center.
