Youth Center Design & Architecture

We begin with a basic design, along with concepts that will improve functionality and increase affordability. Our focus is not to present a detailed building plan or organizational structure but to assist you in integrating features that meet your specific needs. We bring a wealth of experience in running a teen center and modifying the building design to support ministry objectives. Our desire is to help you learn from our failures and successes.

Church Renovation

Here’s an idea to seriously consider: Renovate your existing facility and offer programming that will attract youth to your church. If you have rooms that are going unused, we’ll show you how to make the best use of your space and once again attract youths into your building and the life of the church.

LESSONS LEARNED FROM BARNDOMINIUMS

The cost of houses has skyrocketed in the past few years. Today, someone would need to make more than $106,000 annually to be able to purchase the same home they could have purchased making $59,000 in 2020. That is an 80% increase in four years! Desperate times call for desperate measures, and folks are beginning to consider design concepts that I have advocated for many years.

When people think of pole or steel barn construction they tend to think of “pole barns.” What people need to realize is that with innovative colors and design techniques, pole or steel barn construction can significantly cut the cost of a structure without sacrificing aesthetics. They are calling these pole or steel constructed homes, “Barndominiums.” Below are some examples. They can be constructed for $62-$136 per square foot, and they can help folks visualize how the same cost saving approach can be applied to youth centers.

Our Model Facility

Features

A permanent facility with designated space

By having designated space, setup and takedown are minimized. Quality equipment can stay in one place. Since other groups do not meet in the building at the same time, disturbing others is not a concern.

Designed with security in mind

The layout is designed to be easily monitored by cameras and responsible adults, with no blind spots, where kids can get into trouble. We emphasize having one primary entrance, with security features such as alarms placed on secondary doors.

Quality and affordable designs

Rock Solid utilizes strategies and techniques to build an affordable quality new facility or renovate an existing facility that is size appropriate for small to mid-size towns and communities. The simplicity of design minimizes wasted space and lowers the cost.

Comprehensive and efficient

Our approach to design encompasses all of the desired elements of a youth center, including a check-in area, a sports activity room, a lounge area, a kitchen or Café with a dining area, an administrative office, and restrooms.

A flexible design

We start with a basic design, along with concepts that will increase functionality and affordability, but you are in the driver's seat. We are here to assist you in any way we can, drawing on our years of experience and lessons learned.

Multiple use of space

A key component of our financial strategy is to rent the facility to outside groups. Through lighting and other creative approaches, we can change the appearance and atmosphere in the building from fun to formal or whatever you need it to be.
