Like many synagogues with outdated, aging, and inefficient infrastructure, as well as major ADA accessibility issues, Congregation Beth-El had significant and complicated challenges to overcome in creating a facility that the next generation could enjoy.

Significant demolition, new construction and renovation occurred in a phased approach through out the entire facility to facilitate the program. Although there were many creative solutions to the numerous design challenges, ADA accessibility was a particularly sensitive issue to the congregation which was addressed in discreet, aesthetic and functional ways.
