Wheaton Bible Church

Carol Stream, Illinois

The construction of a new 238,000 SF church was part of a visionary plan by the members of Wheaton Bible Church to provide much needed additional space for worship services, educational programs, world ministry, and administrative offices.  The Church had outgrown its space in downtown Wheaton and purchased a 45-acre site to be the future home for the congregation.  The project was designed to serve a multitude of needs for congregation members through a large number of amenities.   

Site preparation involved the mass excavation of over 265,000 cubic yards of earth. Sustainable landscape systems included bio-swales, five ponds for storm water retention and the planting of native prairie grasses for erosion control. The foundation is supported entirely of large caissons to overcome poor soil conditions. The Worship Centers have pipe organs and extensive multi-media capabilities including high tech audio, video projection and theatrical lighting.
