NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Clemson University Restoration Institute has finalized the contracts for the design and construction of a $98 million wind turbine drivetrain testing facility in North Charleston. Once complete at the end of 2012, the project will be the largest facility of its kind in the world. Choate Construction Co. will provide construction management services for the project and AEC Engineering will provide architectural and engineering services. AEC is subcontracting with local architecture and engineering firm Davis & Floyd. The testing facility will be constructed within Building 69, a 92,264-square-foot warehouse formerly used by the Navy that was decommissioned in 1995. The project is being funded partly by a $45 million U.S. Department of Energy grant — the largest single grant every received by Clemson University. The remaining $53 million will come from public and private sources.
