From the original conceptual design and full working drawings, Mariners' original budget was exceeded and looking like the new sanctuary would be put on indefinite hold. Mariners reached out to Fullmer and selected a design team to help redesign the structure, interior, and site work, helping to bring the project in line with projected budgets, while making sure critical design elements were part of the project. With some creative structural changes, value engineering, competitive pricing, and partnering with many talented designers and engineers, Mariners' budget and campus criteria was satisfied and the project moved forward. The new sanctuary, theater seating, full production stage, retail store/coffee shop, kids play area, and campus like setting provided Mariners with the original design intent while keeping check on the overall construction budget.

Fullmer's and Mariners' team effort resulted in one of the most innovative and functional campus designs in the OC area, as well as one of the most beautiful church campuses in all of Southern California.
