Teams from the Charlotte and Raleigh BURGs started taking on work in Charleston, South Carolina in 2015. The successful outcome of 2 key projects allowed us to develop new customer and vendor partnerships. This also resulted in the formation of a new Charleston team, leading to the official opening of the Charleston BURG.
Hotel Marion Square, with Balfour Beatty Construction posed a lot of challenges from the start. Not only did we have a tight work site due to the downtown location, but we had to build a parking garage underground, below sea level.
Working on Woolfe Street Apartments allowed us to develop a new key customer relationship with Trident Construction, a local Charleston General Contractor.
With the success of these two projects, Lithko secured another key project, a new building for Medical University of South Carolina with Robins and Morton. These new relationships have been crucial to the formation of the new Charleston BURG and will continue to contribute to the success in this market.
