PERIMETER CHURCH

Children and Youth Ministries Theaters
Duluth, Georgia

In order to accommodate a rapidly growing and thriving youth ministry, Perimeter Church added two buildings with a covered connector on its campus in Duluth, Georgia.

KidsTown was designed as a city street with a series of storefronts, town homes, and light poles that lead to a 400-seat children’s theater. The theater features an asymmetrical split-thrust stage and carpeted stepped seating for 400. The Bricks, which serves middle and high school aged youth, was designed as an “industrial” or loft type space with a coffee shop, rock climbing wall, caged basketball courts, and game room. The space also includes a bookstore and a large auditorium with flexible seating for as many as 750.

The two additions totaled 90,000 sf and were constructed adjacent to the main Sanctuary and the Christian School. Safety of members and visitors was of paramount concern and required careful planning and sequencing of construction activities to maintain safe and convenient access throughout the construction process.

Pool Renovation
Duluth, Georgia

In order to better serve a growing and very popular summer camp ministry program, Perimeter Church’s Camp All-American improved and expanded their swimming pool and recreational activities facilities.

Camp All-American was established as a summer camp for kids in need of love, encouragement and hope, and where parents and their children feel safe playing and learning. The Project improved pool facilities by modifying and expanding the existing lap pool and enhancing its characteristics for team water sports. A toddlers’ spray pad and play area was built, as was a zero-entry pool where children can walk seamlessly from the pool deck into the pool. A waterfall feature, evoking the Rock of Horeb, was also added. This custom rock/faux rock feature provides for a constant water cascade under which children can walk.

The pool additions and expansions required modifications to the existing pool equipment and building, as well as a new pool equipment building and equipment. The project also added three standard tennis courts to the immediate recreational area.
