Lance Bailey & Associates, Inc. provided full architectural services for the tenant fit-out of a once large open span; the 11,000 square foot tenant improvement located on the second floor of the worship center above the administrative wing, has become a tranquil oasis for members of Reid Temple and the surrounding community throughout the week. The space houses a multi-purpose room that seats approximately 240 people, seven classrooms/break-out rooms wired with smart boards, digital projectors and high speed internet. Additionally, there are offices for church ministries, two large storage facilities for excess property and a counseling center established to meet the needs of the church membership and the Glenn Dale community with controlled entry and exiting for increased safety.
