A Strong Contribution to Downtown Charleston

Phase I

Construction consisted of a new 5,000 seat athletic arena and related site work. At 75,000 sq ft, the project footprint almost completely consumes the site. The main building adjoins an existing auditorium on one perimeter and property lines on the three other sides. All materials (including over 400 piles) had to be transported between twenty-foot wide openings through a historic brick fence.

Phase II

Construction involved renovating the existing gymnasium into a state of the art practice facility, racquetball courts, squash courts, aerobic rooms and weight training facilities.

“We found Thompson Turner to be one of the finest organizations that we have had the opportunity to work with.”
