Zion Christian School
Byron Center, MI
First Companies has been hired for a series of construction projects at Zion Christian School, including their most recent addition, giving them 5 more classrooms and 6,000 SF of space. The newest project included various site enhancements, including an improved storm drain system, revitalized landscaping, a new ball field, basketball courts and playground expansion.
“Your hard work and positive attitude have been an example to many of us. You have made many sacrifices and we are now enjoying the benefits of your labors…So much has been accomplished in such a short time that we doubt we will ever really know all that you and others have done. We are grateful.”
– Reverend Ken Smith
“As Zion Christian School has been blessed with a growing enrollment, with that also comes the need for more space. First Companies helped us with our immediate expansion needs in the elementary as well as worked with us to create a master plan for our entire K-12 school. The project was completely funded by donations, which made it very important to account for every penny. First Companies met with us regularly to go over the budget and review each expense as they came in. They understood the importance of using our donors’ money wisely – often showing us ways to save money without sacrificing quality. Additionally, the safety of our students is a high priority, and First Companies took that into consideration in the selection of materials and use of block walls. I would highly recommend working with First Companies on any commercial construction project. We look forward to working with them again as we implement our master plan in the years to come.”
