Throwback Thursday - St. Matthews Episcopal Church

St. Matthews Episcopal Church completed three major projects with FSF from 1996 to 2000. The first project was the one story Sandra Strickland Children's Education Building.  The second project was the new Worship Building with seating for 350.  The nave was designed as a contemporary interpretation on an English country gothic church, with exposed wood trusses and pointed gothic windows.  The third phase was the renovation of the former worship space into a Parrish Hall, including a two story addition with a Kitchen to serve the Parrish Hall.

Employee Highlight - Morgan Denty

How long have you been at FSF?  I was with FSF from 2007 - 2010 then came back last year.

What is your favorite season and why?  Summer!  I love the hot weather and being by the water.

Name three hobbies you enjoy.  Traveling, going for hikes, and visiting museums or festivals.

If you could travel anywhere where would it be?  I would love to go to the Dominican Republic.  The food, beaches, and music are all calling my name!

FSF Foto Friday!

Concrete is more than cold and grey.  You can utilize it for many other things.  We used concrete with a form liner to create wall panels for this particular building.  The panels were stained to give a wood plank design finish.  Can you tell it’s concrete?

FSF Foto Friday!

Here is a sneak peek of the exterior concrete color of the children’s and youth areas at CrossPointe Church.  The panels were formed using a form liner to give it a wood plank siding look.  We are all excited to see the final product!

Throwback Thursday - First Baptist Church Hampton

Foreman Seeley Fountain was honored to be the architects for The First Baptist Church of Hampton for their relocation project.  Designed in 1990, it was the first of many future church relocation projects to come our way.  Located on 15 acres off Ga. Hwy 20, this 20,000 sq. ft. facility was designed to have a 500 seat multi-purpose room that held the congregation's worship, fellowship and education needs.  The room was central in the design with additional education spaces, kitchen and the administration area surrounding it.  Pastor Terry Quick led the relocation effort and the church has continued to grow and expand in the subsequent years due to his and their long range vision.
