The building was built using a Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) system from American Buildings. The project was built at LEED Silver standards,l utilizing some of the following Green Building items: Permeable asphalt paving, parking for low emissions vehicles, limiting storm water run-off, cleaner storm water run-off, energy efficient mechanical equipment and lighting, construction waste management, use of regional materials, use of recycled materials, etc. In addition to the worship space, the building will include a nursery/toddler area, rehearsal room and conference rooms.

The major goal was to create a quicker project schedule and LEED accreditation. Metal has a lot of recycled content that contributes greatly to LEED points. LEED accreditation is required for commercial buildings in Montgomery County.
