Over the past 20 years, projects in which Mark has held active design and leadership roles have received multiple design awards and have been published in an array of newspaper and professional journals. The diversity of work Mark has led through design and management includes the transformative additions and renovations to Peace Center for the Performing Arts, the new Coastal Carolina Student Recreation and Convocation Center; The Honors Residence Hall at the University of South Carolina; The Center for Achievement of Richland District Two, Granby Mill Redevelopment; Chapin United Methodist Church Sanctuary,  Blythewood High School of Richland District Two, Bank Meridian Columbia,  Liberty Corporation Headquarters, Greenville, a new Residence Hall for Lander University, and renovations to Kanuga Inn and Conference Center.  He has led the design of numerous new resort destinations for the elite Hilton Grand Vacations Club since 2009 including resorts in Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, and currently in historic Charleston, SC.

Whether traveling afar or experiencing the riches of good old South Carolina, they try hard to find delight in all that is around us.  Mark enjoys the camaraderie of an amazing workout group – F3, watching his girls in soccer and cross country, attempts to find the joy in golf, and is active in his church family.

“I became acquainted with Mark Timbes while he served as Project Manager for the construction of Blythewood High School and our District Stadium. I saw firsthand his leadership with respect to programming the new high school. He was also very involved in on-site construction administration during the first year of the project. His attention to detail and thoroughness in overall project administration helped produce a project that has achieved national recognition. Recently Mark’s firm, Garvin Design Group, was selected to continue its working relationship with Richland School District Two. I welcome the prospect of working with Mark and his team on more projects in the future. “

Bob Davis, Chief Financial Officer Richland School District Two
