We want all of our buildings to be clean and appealing both inside and out. When students and administration see your building they immediately form opinions about the importance of your ministry based upon the condition of your building. This includes everything from signage, lighting, cleanliness of bathrooms and kitchen, comfortable heating and cooling, yard care, and more. Our buildings must take on a welcoming presence when students enter. Hospitality is enhanced when a building is well maintained.
