F&ME Office Building
Located on a neglected corner in the center of the University of South Carolina campus, this project seeks to reclaim the area with a 15,000-sf 3-story office building. F&ME, a geotechnical testing company, purchased an old 1-story building and the adjacent property with a plan to use the existing building as a testing lab, while building an office tower on the adjacent lot. F&ME will up-fit the 3rd floor of this building as additional testing offices while leasing out the bottom 2 floors. The earth tone colors of the masonry veneer have been selected to reflect the company's identity as well as to blend with the University's standard building aesthetic. An accent wall of dark gray polished concrete block veneer serves as a marquee. This project was completed in early 2009.
