Graycor Construction was selected for the renovation of Charleston Town Center mall. The project included new flooring throughout the common areas of the three-story mall, as well as design-build of the center court fountain and new finishes in the existing washrooms. Graycor worked closely with the designer, architect, owner and fountain contractor to ensure all design aspects, as well as the schedule, were met.
Demolition and construction were completed while the mall remained open to the public, with minimal disruption to commerce. The Graycor team coordinated closely with the mall to maintain a heightened awareness of public safety by issuing frequent communiques regarding the renovation. Throughout construction, mall employees were updated on the project’s progress through weekly bulletins, and the local newspaper often featured stories about the mall renovation.
The renovation was completed to launch both the holiday season and the mall’s 30th Anniversary celebration. The rapport developed with Charleston Town Center was such that Graycor’s on-site project engineer was asked to participate in the holiday kickoff gala, ceremoniously turning on the new fountain.
