SOUTH CAROLINA BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH CENTER BREAKS GROUND
CHARLESTON, S.C. — Choate Construction has broken ground on the 28,000-square-foot SCRA MUSC Innovation Center – Charleston, a renovation and expansion of an existing historic property in Charleston’s industrial area. The center, which is located 2 miles from the Medical University of South Carolina campus, will feature biomedical research and lab space, administrative offices and a police substation. Choate will replace the roof, outfit the interior with new fixtures and fire-suppression systems and restore the façade to its original brick. The development is part of a larger plan to create a biomedical research hub in the city. Completion is expected this winter.
