South Highland Sanctuary Renovation

South Highland Presbyterian Church

Restoring one of Birmingham's oldest and finest churches.



South Highland Presbyterian Church was established in 1888 in downtown Birmingham and has had a rich history serving the surrounding community. Over the years, the Davis team has completed numerous renovations and additions to their facility, including their Child Development Center.

Most recently, our team completed a complete refurbishment of the main 1892 sanctuary and living room area. For the sanctuary, this included removal and re-installation of all pews to replace cork flooring, expansion of the chancel, new limestone steps, renovation of the choir loft and rear screen, new front rail, new lighting, plaster repair, new color palate, and stained glass window repair. The living room also underwent a complete renovation, including expanding into a seldom used, adjoining library, new porcelain tile that matches the flooring pattern flowing into the main worship space, and new flooring and finishes on the main entrance corridor from the rear church entrance and parking area.  Other areas involved in this renovation included a stairwell and the downstairs church office entry way with a new steel and glass canopy, new flooring, and new lighting.
