Local News About Construction,  In South Carolina


 Industrial Construction Soars

Due to onshore operations related to the pandemic, there is more demand for next-day delivery. This is driving a lot of growth in the industrial construction business for on-land design work in the Carolinas.

The company says that SeamonWhiteside is new to the industrial sector, which explains some of the growth: there was just room to grow. But this year, the company plans to design, build, or do both for more than 30 million square feet of industrial buildings. The company has built about 100,000 square feet of industrial space in the last few years.

Our state has never had this many industrial projects at once. We noticed this trend because this company is creative and because we want to grow and diversify our business sectors. So, we were able to plan these industrial projects ahead of time and invest in this sector as demand grew.

In the news release, O’Neal said that industrial projects differ from other designs and require different skills, with civil engineering being more important than landscape architecture. They also need more people and money to be spent on them. Because most industrial projects are in rural areas, where the government is less involved, and it is easier to get permission, the team starts putting plans into action as soon as they are put together.

SeamonWhiteside is based in Mount Pleasant, but it also has Summerville, Greenville, Spartanburg, and Charlotte offices. The organization provides master planning, civil engineering, landscape architecture, urban design, land development management services, and coordination of building permits, among other things. 

Bon Secours, Compass Surgical Plan Millennium Surgery Center

Plans for a new Millennium Surgery Center have been made public by Bon Secours and Compass Surgical Partners. It will include treatments for the spine, ears, nose, and throat (ENT) and robotic outpatient joint surgery. In the past, all of these procedures have always been done in hospitals, according to a press release.

In a press release, orthopedic specialist Dr. Jay Womack of Bon Secours Piedmont Orthopedics said, “Millennium will bring a robotic joint replacement to the area. This will give patients the best level of care, restore mobility, and improve their quality of life.” “We’re excited about how well this center will work and how much better it will make things for patients.”

Bon Secours has been given a certificate of necessity to build an outpatient surgery center with two treatment rooms and six operating rooms. The 20,000-square-foot building will be on the Bon Secours St. Francis Millennium property in Greenville, near where Innovation Drive ends.

Matt Caldwell, president of Bon Secours St. Francis, says that the Millennium Surgery Center will give people and businesses in Greenville another option for surgery. “We’re excited for Millennium to open so we can continue to give our patients in Greenville and the surrounding area great care while also improving care standards and bringing in new ideas.” 

When the new Millennium Surgery Center opens in 2024, patients, commercial payers, and businesses in the Greenville area can get procedures done for less money. Scott Bacon, in charge of business development at Compass, says that Millennium will be the first ASC in the Upstate of South Carolina to offer robotic joint replacements as an outpatient service. “This means that people in Greenville and nearby areas will be able to get cutting-edge care for less money.”
