On October 14th DTAH presented to the church congregation the final design for the Cummer Avenue United Church renewal. Pending municipal approval, construction is anticipated to commence in Spring 2019.

The revitalization of the Cummer Avenue United Church aims to create a more welcoming, adaptable and sustainable worship centre and community hub for the surrounding growing community. The renovation scope includes the provision of a new main entrance connecting to reconfigured worship spaces and administrative offices, as well as new multi-purpose meeting and gathering spaces within the ground and lower levels of the building. A full upgrade of mechanical and electrical systems is focused on reducing energy consumption and increasing user comfort. The landscape surrounding the church is also to be reimagined as more open and accommodating of a range of outdoor activities while improving views toward and into the building.
