MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - The new face for one of the fastest growing cities in America is expected to finish on time and under budget.
Construction crews broke ground at the site for new Mount Pleasant Town Hall last summer and one year later, they continue to chug along.
"We fully see this as the public's building," Town Administrator Eric DeMoura said. "It's going to be an inviting building, whether they have government business or not."
The roughly 100,000 square foot structure on Ann Edwards lane is still a year out from full completion and has not hit a roadblock since October's record flooding. "Construction crews had to reorganize plans," said Government Outreach Officer
Lauren Sims. "Our crews were awesome. They mitigated it very well and were able to get items on the back-end done ahead of time and catch us right back up to schedule," she said.
The new Town Hall building is designed to last the test of time. "We're expecting this to be a 75 year building and given current building codes it has to be built strong, stronger than typical commercial type buildings," DeMoura said.
