South Carolina Realtors
The headquarters for South Carolina's largest trade organization had been housed in its existing 6,800-sf structure since the mid-1980's, and was in desperate need of an interior renovation and technological upgrade. The current facility also lacked a large multipurpose space needed to host regional conferences and events for the Association's statewide membership. A full interior renovation of the existing facility includes multiple code, energy and life-safety upgrades, as well as the creation of an open office concept utilizing expansive interior glazing and borrowed light. Along with the renovations, a 3,400-sf addition has been designed to accommodate new meeting and support spaces, including new accessible restrooms. The 1,200-sf meeting room can be divided for smaller groups, and is equipped with state-of-the-art audio/visual systems for presentations, training sessions and video-conferencing. Adjacent to the main room, a glazed lobby area provides informal break-out space and overflow for conference participants and visitors. Terminating the lobby along the street facade, a glazed tower element signals the Association's new identity with an etching of the Realtor 'R' backlit from within.
