Beth Emet The Free Synagogue

Beth Emet The Free Synagogue is in the midst of a capital campaign with the goals of updating and renovating its space to better engage and welcome current and prospective members. Bulley & Andrews is ensuring that these goals are achieved working with the synagogue to provide construction management services.

Recently completing Phase One, B&A oversaw the 22,0000 sq. ft. interior renovation of the synagogue’s East Side, including their Sanctuary, Herman and Mildred Crown Room, a completely redesigned lobby, and an improved exterior that provides a more accessible entrance to the sanctuary. The scope of work also included mechanical and electrical upgrades, classroom renovations, office space, bathroom renovations, and site work.

Transforming how Beth Emet uses their space, the renovation provides:

  • Flexibility for a more intimate worship service with adaptable, comfortable seating
  • Improved lighting, sound, and the installation of a new assisted-listening system
  • A new lobby that encourages socializing and provides flexible areas for learning
