Clancy & Theys “tops out” government center project with a celebration

March 12, 2018

Clancy & Theys hosted a topping-out event at the York County Government Center March 7 to celebrate the last beam making its way to the top of the recent project in York, South Carolina. Over 100 people, including the Clancy & Theys team, York County employees, YorkCoGov-ToppingEvent-oswalddesign-20-rCumming Corporation and Stevens & Wilkinson, celebrated the milestone over a barbecue lunch.

Slated for completion in December 2018, the new York County Government Center will provide the office space needed for day-to-day operations and council meetings, as well as room for future expansion. Several of the county’s key departments will be among those located in the new building.

Stevens & Wilkinson of Columbia, South Carolina provided the design of this modern office space for government employees, while maintaining the traditional architectural style characteristic of the surrounding area.

The four-story, 80,000 gross square feet building will have a traditional exterior, with a cast-stone base, brick midsection and fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) cornice and accent branding. The state-of-the-art office space will replace the current one-story building and allow for consolidation of many of the county’s government offices. The project will include a roof terrace outside the new council chambers space, a vegetated roof, terrazzo flooring in the main lobby with wood-panel accented walls, and a glass rail at the third level overlooking the main entry, as well as many other architectural design characteristics.

Clancy & Theys is grateful to York County for trusting us with this project and looks forward to providing a more efficient, modern workplace for employees to enjoy.
