McCurdy Ministries Master Plan & Campus Improvements

Española, NM

McCurdy Ministries has a 100+ year history of serving the Greater Española Valley community through educational programs for children of all ages. Their vision moving forward is to expand their services and become a Community Center. FBT is working with McCurdy Ministries to develop a campus Master Plan centered around these elements:

Live: Housing development with 60 to 67 townhomes and single-family homes
Work: 30,000 SF of new commercial office space
Educate: New K-12 McCurdy Charter School
Recreate: 56,000 SF of new construction, renovation and additions to support community programs

A focal point of the project is the retreat center, a renovation and addition to a historic John Gaw Meem building to house volunteers visiting from around the country. The facility will also be available to the community for weddings, festivals, conferences, trainings, etc. Architectural concepts for the entire development respond to the campus’s historic character and the Northern New Mexico vernacular. Proposed site and landscape improvements celebrate the area’s rich agricultural history and supporting community revitalization through reconnection with tradition.
