Located on the Mt. Pleasant side of Charleston Harbor near Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, FJ is thrilled to expand our geographical reach into a familiar market providing construction services in the corporate, healthcare, and multi-unit/mixed-use market sectors. Henry Johnson, Chief Strategy Officer, stated, “We look forward to continued growth in the Carolinas, and building upon the trusted relationships we have established in the Charleston market.”
FJ launches the new office in the depths of pushing through completion of a key project over the next few months. Being delivered under a design-build contract, the Charleston County Materials Recovery Facility in North Charleston is well underway and expected to be complete in Fall 2020. At 67,000 SF, plus an 11,500 SF office building and 10,200 SF fleet maintenance building, this project spans 22 acres off Commerce Parkway. On the other side of the bridge fronting Charleston Harbor, The Office at Morrison Yard, a JV project with Balfour Beatty, is expected to break ground in March 2020. At 11-stories tall, the building will consist of approximately 140,000 SF of Class A office space, 10,000 SF of retail, and a 4-story parking deck.
The FJ team has worked in Charleston, Mt. Pleasant, and throughout South Carolina for over 15 years, most recently completing Portside Ferry Wharf for Holder Properties. Approximately 120,000 SF with 5-stories, the new office building is located in the 18-acre mixed-use development along the Charleston Harbor. Other notable projects include 25 Calhoun Street and Faber Center in Charleston, as well as the 116,000 SF Center for Innovation located on the University of South Carolina’s Innovista Research Campus in Columbia, SC.
“Opening an office in Charleston is a natural progression based on FJ’s history…” said Patrick Freese, Chief Executive Officer of FJ. “With existing client, subcontractor, and vendor relationships, we are confident we will continue to bring great value to our clients and their needs in the area.”
The Charleston office is led by Project Executive Jason Regan, a South Carolina native. “I’m very excited for the opportunity to help FJ build upon their existing foundation here in the greater Charleston area, utilizing key relationships developed from being entrenched in the local market,” Jason stated. His 15 years of local experience includes MUSC Health Hollings Cancer Center Renovations and Heartland of West Ashley Rehabilitation & Nursing Center Addition in Charleston; Tru by Hilton in Mt. Pleasant; Del Webb Nexton Amenity and Sales Center in Summerville; and numerous other corporate, healthcare, and hospitality projects.
