Ad Building Progress Made and Ground Broken on Phase 2A!
This summer has seen a flurry of activity on the Ad Building Preservation Project! We have the funds in hand to accomplish our goal of sealing and preserving the Ad Building for future generations, and we also are going to be able to address some of the internal needs of the building to make the space more functional. The roof is complete, the windows are installed and wrapped, metal work is done, and additional work will continue next summer. We are now in the process of addressing the interior needs of the Ad Building. We are so grateful for everything that has been accomplished and praise the Lord for His provision!
Due to significant cost-savings through volunteer labor and expertise and the wise money management of the NCS Campus Executive Team, we believe that the $475,000 already received for the Ad Building Preservation Project will allow us to do the scope of work on the Ad Building that we are desiring. Therefore, we are now moving our preservation project focus to the exterior and interior of the current gymnasium building. Our fundraising efforts will now focus on the most critical needs to update and make this space more functional. Please consider what your part may be in helping us reach our goal of raising an additional $125,000 in Preservation Project funds to continue the work of preserving our facilities.
With the Ad Building Project nearing completion and the Preservation Project focus moved to the gymnasium building, we are excited to announce the beginning of work on Phase 2A of The Next 50 Years Capital Campaign! One of the most critical needs on campus is for ADA restrooms. We currently have the necessary dollars to make that happen, so we are moving ahead with the project! Three bids were received, a contractor has been selected, and work has already begun on an addition to the current gym building. This addition will include a new entryway on the southwest corner of the building, along with restrooms for men and women. The addition will be built in such a way that Phase 2A (kitchen/dining hall) work can continue, as the new area will fit in seamlessly with the plans for the rest of the project. Also, we are installing air conditioning in the gymnasium! This is a much-needed update that will greatly benefit both our own students and visitors to our campus.
Phase 2 of The Next 50 Years Capital Campaign has been in the fundraising stage for several years, and we are thrilled to be able to work on this exciting project! Phase 2 is much larger in scope than the portion we are undertaking right now, and your donation to The Next 50 Years Capital Campaign can help ensure that we are able to reach our goal of building a new kitchen, dining hall, and gymnasium.
