Leverage Data and Science
The Field Guide process is specifically designed to help schools, churches, and non-profit organizations prepare for a large project.
This process uses the same insights and tools as the high stakes commercial and development world because when the stakes are high, it would be irresponsible to merely “trust your gut.”

You’ll even get a Demographics Study and a Psychographics [P]Reach Report about your community and the surrounding area, along with ministry insights and analysis. Trust me. This is way more content than you’ll ever find on Google.
One of Visioneering’s Development experts will show up on-site for a full facility review and work to uncover your unique story, document your existing conditions, and dive deep into your ministry programming needs, which will help inform all decisions made regarding your big project.
Financing Feasibility Report
Almost every church will require some level of financing, even if it’s just a short-term bridge loan during construction, and projects can’t proceed until funding is in place. That’s why we use loan underwriting experts to create a financing feasibility report to analyze your current financial health and borrowing capacity along with recommendations to put you in the best position to secure future financing from potential lenders.
LandVision and Entitlement Research
Our team will investigate available resources regarding Planning and Zoning designations, acreage, square footage of buildings, and any wetland or floodplain issues that have been identified, all of which can impact the development of your site. We’ll even conduct some preliminary Entitlement research in your jurisdiction to see what you’re up against when it’s time to get approvals for your project.
Preliminary Building Program
The Visioneering Field Guide Team will analyze the growth demands and programming desires for your facility and help determine how many square feet you need for optimal impact. We’re gonna analyze every square foot of your building and figure out where you need more space and where you just need a better design with a more efficient layout.
Preliminary Project Schedule & Budget
Finally, you’ll get a Preliminary Project Schedule with major project milestones, a Preliminary Project Budget, and a Preliminary Cash Flow projection for your next phase (that’s a mouthful, huh?). This will give you a general understanding of the associated costs and timing involved with stepping into your next project.
