Our Work In Pickens County Commerce Park Continues

Utilizing our extensive knowledge in the area, Davis & Floyd has completed another project in the Pickens County Commerce Park. Safeplast NA now has a new manufacturing facility located on an 8-acre parcel in the Park. The Canadian-based company made the decision to expand to South Carolina this past year, creating over 30 new jobs and promoting economic development in the area.

Davis & Floyd was commissioned by Safeplast NA to provide civil, landscape, architectural, structural, and construction administration services for the new industrial facility. Working in support of Alliance Pickens, and teaming with THS Constructors, we developed plans for the new 30,000 SF manufacturing facility. Having previously designed and constructed a rough grading plan for the subject parcel, we were quickly able to evaluate the owner’s development plan to confirm that their facility needs could be accommodated by the available land.

The project team worked closely with Safeplast NA and THS Constructors to establish a project budget and value engineer the site and building to control costs and maintain the client’s budget. We were able to¬†expedite the permit process due to our previous work onsite and relationship with the local permitting agency and cut several weeks off of the project schedule.

The result was an impressive facility for Safeplast NA to manufacture their innovative products, delivered to them within the aggressive design and construction schedule. To learn more about our successful Safeplast NA project, watch this video:
