WYCLIFFE BIBLE TRANSLATORS
Project Executive for US National Headquarters
The successful completion of a new world headquarters for Campus Crusade for Christ, overseen by SCA Founder Jay Berlinsky, drew the attention of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Wycliffe, like Campus Crusade, had been based in California and was contemplating a move of its US operations to a less costly location. Jay and his team arranged for Wycliffe to acquire the necessary acreage from land and options held by Campus Crusade and began the development of Wycliffe’s $35 million, 140,000 square foot headquarters campus.
Wycliffe’s location and building site presented some significant challenges. Over 1,000,000 cubic feet of on-site earth work was required. Jay’s team was also responsible for a tri party agreement to rebuild three plus miles of Moss Park Road into a four lane roadway, a $6 million project that had to be completed before Wycliffe’s headquarters could open.
These challenges were successfully met, along with the program management, due diligence and construction management and closeout required to complete the project. The result was a beautiful and functional headquarters campus that includes the Dayspring Discovery Center, an interactive learning center where Wycliffe’s vision is shared with thousands of visitors every year.
