Spring Valley Academy begins construction of its new worship and performing arts center with a groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday, April 22, at 2:00 p.m. Spring Valley Academy is located at 1461 E. Spring Valley Road in Centerville.
The ceremony will start in the gymnasium prior to the groundbreaking at the new building site.
The worship and performing arts center will be built in three phases. The first phase will be approximately 11,000 square feet and will include a 425-seat chapel/auditorium space. Phases two and three will include space for the music department (band and choir rooms, offices, practice spaces) and a large atrium lobby.
The facility will be available for community use.
Cost for the first phase is approximately $5.5 million. Phase one construction is expected to begin this summer and be completed by spring 2018. Danis Building Construction Company will manage the construction. The New York design firm of EYP and the local architect LWC are collaborating on the design.
