College of Charleston, Housing Fire Safety Upgrades
Architect: Rosenblum Coe Architects, Inc.
Location: 15 & 17 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC
Chastain Construction has renovated two historic homes that are now a part of the College of Charleston campus. The project involved updating the fire sprinkler and alarm systems to meet National Fire Protection Association standards. These beautiful Greek Revival and Italianate element homes were constructed between 1859-1860. Built as part of the John S. Riggs Tenements, which included three houses on St. Philip Street and two on Wentworth Street. The houses have been a part of the College of Charleston campus since 1976.
