IBC’s grounds are nestled within a business and residential area classified as “Parks and Gardens”, where strict building codes and regulations apply regarding construction and maintenance of a property. We have considered several alternative ways to add additional space, such as adding a second floor, revamping the whole church interior for increased space, new concrete building and modular building. After thorough investigation of the legal and financial feasibility, we have decided to go ahead with the plan of an adjacent building based on a modular structure.
The new addition, positioned at the front of the church building, will consist of two stories providing a new foyer / fellowship area, two large classrooms, administrative and pastors' office space, and additional bathrooms. Several changes will also be made to the old building, thus achieving slightly more space for the auditorium and more effective use of the fellowship hall and kitchen.
One advantage of a modular structure is the short length of construction, approximately 90 days. We expect to be able to continue with our Sunday services and other activities without interruption.
The building extension as well as the modifications to the existing building and required landscaping will cost € 450,000 ($ 600,000). For information on how you can help, click here.
