BHB provided MEP engineering services to the $8 million, 25,753 SF addition to Pathway Church in Burleson. The addition included a 1,000 seat worship center, expanded concourse, a new reception desk, two exterior trellises, high quality AV and lighting systems, and a soundproof video streaming room.

The versatility of this new addition allows it to be used for a multitude of occasions including worship, dinner theaters, and concerts.


Some unique features of the project were LED video walls, a center motorized video wall, fixed side video walls, and environmental protection.

The electrical design included the setup of DMX controlled light fixtures to allow for dimming to 1%. These light fixtures also had to match the existing adjacent space.


A cost-saving measure was implementing single-zone VAV rooftop units for the concourse, sanctuary, and stage areas. Due to the limited roof space, our team used roof-mounted ductwork to condition the sanctuary.

VRF systems were also added in the mechanical room, electrical room, and adjacent offices/support spaces as another cost-saving measure.


This new addition opened up to the public in late 2021, followed by a 50th-anniversary dedication ceremony in November 2021. The church dedicated the new addition to the original six families that founded the Burleson branch of the church.

BHB was delighted to be invited to the 50th-anniversary dedication ceremony. Our team has been a part of several renovations for the church, so it was great to celebrate such a significant milestone for Pathway Burleson.
