J&S Construction Company, Inc. has recently been awarded a construction contract for the Madisonville First United Methodist Church, located in Madisonville, Tenn.

In December 2007, a fire completely destroyed the FUMC’s sanctuary. Working alongside Mark Rodgers, Architect, and the FUMC Building Committee, J&S used the design-build approach to construction to design a new 14,000 square-foot sanctuary and a classroom and administrative addition, both to the existing building.

The sanctuary will seat over 250 people and has also designed a large gathering area where fellowship can be held both before and after service. The administrative and classroom wing will include offices and six classrooms, as well as a space for large youth gatherings. 

“We are blessed to have the opportunity to help the Madisonville First United Methodist Church rebuild their sanctuary,” said John D. Stites II, Chief Executive Officer of J&S. “It is always exciting to have the opportunity to work alongside a church that has over 170 years of history in the community.”

J&S’ Design/Build approach to construction occurs when management deals with a unified Design/Build “team” working together on its behalf. With more than 52 years’ experience building projects, relationships and trust, J&S has completed more than 90,000 square feet of LEED certified buildings and over 5,000 unique projects with a 75 percent repeat customer rate. J&S employs 100 of the finest craftsmen and trade professionals, including a number of nationally recognized and award winning engineers.
