Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church
Serving the Aiken Deanery of the Diocese of Charleston, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church asked McMillan Pazdan Smith to provided a Master Plan study for their campus located in Greenwood, SC. This study led to a successful fundraising phase. The initial project included a 12,000 SF church, designed with the flexibility to expand from 800 to 1,200 seats. As the focal point of the campus, the church included large gathering spaces and direct access to the adjacent activities building. The design team was able to separate vehicular and pedestrian traffic by routing vehicular traffic around the perimeter of the site. Defined walkways link the buildings together. Phase II included an activities building, offices, and a classroom building.
