Located within the epicenter of Charleston, South Carolina’s fast-growing I-26 corridor, the SCRAs Applied Technologies Center is a one of two hallmark office structures within the vibrant, self-sustaining community of Nexton in Summerville.
The three-story structural steel structure is clad in an array of Old Savannah brick, Trespa architectural panels, ACM, and curtainwall glass. Custom interior decorative Trespa panels, ceramic tile flooring, and custom pendant lighting enhance the lobby and office/conference room corridors, which each boast an open ceiling structure. A monumental staircase accents the lobby, which is also adorned by a custom orchid sculpture.
Multiple high-tech conference areas, adorned with glass walls, are named after branches of the U.S. military (Army Room, Marine Room, etc.) to pay homage to SCRA’s clients and personnel, many of whom dutifully served. The main conference room, which overlooks the lobby, features a state-of-the-art flat panel television system capable of displaying nine separate programs in a grid-like structure or one program which uses all nine screens for the highest level of visual impact.
Design and construction of the Applied Technologies Center highlights the talent of a Design-Build team dedicated to providing a high standard for sustainability, innovative construction management and highly-detailed schedule control.
