SHP was tasked with taking a building from concept to completion in just twelve months. Along the way it was necessary to match 80 year old brick and negotiate HVAC changes to name a few of the challenges faced. In the end Southern Seminary asked for a “stunning” building to welcome our guests to campus and SHP more than delivered.
