Commercial New Construction — Caroline One / Prudential Summerville
Architect: Berenyi Incorporated
Location: 900 Main Street, Summerville
The construction of the building located at 900 Main Street in Summerville is home to the new Prudential Carolina Real Estate office. This 10,000 SF facility provides office space for approximately 80 real estate agents. The specialized interior finishes include glass walls and custom wood doors. Exterior architectural details include an arched storefront glass entrance, arched brick openings and accent brick details.
Prior to construction, the existing structure on site was demolished to make way for the new building. The soil was tested and deemed unstable, so to remedy this a process of dewatering the site was necessary. This process included removing three feet of soil from the entire site. Once the top soil was removed, a layering process of sand and suitable soil was spread and compacted. The new soil provided the required load bearing specifications for construction of the building and parking areas.
