Religious and Cultural

We make our business personal.

Gephart has built numerous projects that meet the unique needs of religious and cultural organizations. Such buildings often represent more than brick and mortar so our ability to collaborate with owners, designers and other project partners is of great value to our clients.

It's the only way we know.
