Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church (BMPC) is a large and growing congregation with more than 2,000 members. BMPC was organized in 1873 by just 13 women and three men on the Main Line, just west of Philadelphia. This historic campus is comprised of a sanctuary, chapel, ministries center, education building and other facilities. With the growth of their intergenerational community, several renovation projects were identified and planned over a three to five-year period.
BMPC engaged Watchdog to manage two of these renovation projects. Once onboard, Watchdog’s role expanded to encompass the review of all immediate and future projects. After the team studied the timing of the capital campaign fundraising, they determined it would be best to prioritize planned projects and maintenance items that were previously deferred. This led to the creation of an Overall Campus Master Plan initiative to develop a comprehensive and long-term plan of action. Subsequently, Watchdog developed a budget and phased approach to complete the desired improvements while keeping the church operational.Read the whole story
