Construction on the Largest Mass Timber Office Building in South Carolina has Started

Construction has officially begun on the BullStreet District’s 79,000 sq. ft. WestLawn office building in downtown Columbia South Carolina. The five-story office building was designed by globally renowned architectural firm Perkins and Will in collaboration with Robinson Gray Stepp & Laffitte, LLC. The law firm will occupy more than 29,000 square feet on the top two floors, including a private rooftop terrace on the 5th floor. The WestLawn team includes building contractor Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC, civil engineering firm Davis & Floyd, civil contractor C.R. Jackson, and structural engineering firm Britt Peters. “This is a special day for Robinson Gray, The BullStreet District, and all of Columbia,” said Robert Hughes, president of Hughes Development Corporation. “Our mission in the 20-year buildout of the BullStreet District is to honor the past while building for the future. WestLawn does both with mass timber construction that uses one of the oldest building materials known to man in a new and environmentally friendly way. WestLawn will be the largest mass timber office building in South Carolina, and it also will have the most efficient and healthy work environment possible. It is cutting-edge in every respect,” Hughes said.
