Construction begins on new pavilion in Stono Ferry

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Construction crews in Stono Ferry started work on a new pavilion. But this building is not made the conventional way. It's made with heavy timber.

The framework of the pavilion was raised on Thursday. It will over look the race track where the Charleston Cup takes place.

Alumni from The American College of the Building Arts put the timber building together. The design and molding of the pavilion took roughly two years to figure out and complete.

The project is a great way for alumni to recreate the way buildings were built back in the day, while also working on their skills.

"They're working one on one with a major crane operator," said John Paul Huguley of Building Art LLC.  "They're assembling a building all in one day. We haven't seen this in the Lowcountry for decades. It's so fascinating all in one day to see it."

In just a few days the entire timber building will be complete with lighting and outside decking.
