Objectives

Davis & Floyd worked with the City of Greenwood to develop the 6,000-square-foot Greenwood Uptown Market, a vibrant recreational facility that encourages the community to come together to attend produce market days, concerts, parties, and festivals as well as play in the greenspace and 3,000-square-foot interactive water feature. This special project uniquely blends commerce with recreation and beauty with function.

Scope

Davis & Floyd provided engineering (civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical), landscape architecture, and construction management services

Market is a mostly open masonry structure with masonry arches, cupolas, laminated wood truss roof system, and standing seam metal roof

Main facility includes restrooms, wash room, and storage rooms

Decorative lamppost lighting provides aesthetic value and addresses public safety

Venue has audio and visual cabling and wiring for outdoor concerts and other performances

Landscaping features trees and shrubs that produce edible fruit such as apples, peaches, apricots, and blueberries as well as annual and perennial plantings with flowers that attract bees and butterflies

Architectural style reflects adjacent historical buildings and resembles a train depot that once stood on the same spot

Project included electrical service with distribution to all structures, LED lighting and controls with central battery inverts, and fire alarm system

Challenges

Site permitting included sanitary sewer, land disturbance, SCDOT encroachment, domestic water, and fire protection

Civil design included extensions and rerouting of existing stormwater, sanitary sewer, and domestic water piping

Outcome

The project enhances the City of Greenwood’s Center of the Arts District, promoting economic activity, increasing the quality of life for residents, and encouraging families to come out together and support local farmers, crafters, and vendors.
