PROJECT INFORMATION:Project: Ancient City Baptist Church Renovations
Location: St. Augustine, Florida
Owner: Ancient City Baptist Church
Construction Cost: $1.82 Million
Project Size: 13,212 SF
Completion: January 2003

Ancient City Baptist Church first opened its doors on February 2, 1896.  Over the next century, the church underwent several expansions and renovations and at the end of 2001, Perry-McCall Construction was hired to undertake a major renovation to the sanctuary.

Working in a historic, occupied facility presents a unique set of challenges.  One such challenge was how to protect the more than $1.5 million dollars’ worth of Tiffany stained glass windows.  Our team overcame these and many other challenges during the yearlong renovation.

The renovation included major ADA updates including the installation of a new elevator, a complete renovation of the main sanctuary with the addition of a new balcony, a feature that was in the original 1890’s design, but never built, and the complete re-conditioning of the aforementioned stain glass windows. In addition to renovation of the historic church, our team also updated the education and family life areas of the church as well.
