St. Paul's Presbyterian Church: North Port, Florida

“Todd Sweet and his team helped a diverse building committee shape a vision for the Church’s campus while designing the Fellowship Hall reconstruction plan. Working with a committee isn’t always easy and add to that varying levels of experience, Todd and his team showed their patience and creativity to form a consensus among the committee members. The talented staff of Sweet Sparkman developed a wonderful plan for our Fellowship Hall that incorporated a number of the program elements, keeping the overall vision in mind, while staying within a limited budget.”

Peter Van Buskirk P.E., Building Committee Chairman, St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church


St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church constructed of a new 4,000 s.f. Fellowship Hall located in North Port, Florida. The new Fellowship Hall replaced the existing Fellowship Hall that was destroyed by fire. Sweet Sparkman Architects provided architectural design and master planning for the addition.

The first phase was Master Planning and included assisting St. Paul’s with site planning for future structures to be located on the church campus. The phase also included a programming/space needs analysis to determine the size and programs to be included in the new Fellowship Hall. Phase II included basic professional design services for design and construction administration services for future Administration offices, a meditation chapel, classrooms and meeting space.
