Featuring approximately 300 spaces, the Belvidere’s 125,748-square-foot parking deck was built with pre-cast concrete and features 11,700 square feet of PVC mesh façade with multi-gray metallic colors on the two visible sides and a top “jagged” edge design layout. In addition to the parking garage façade, Big Span provided PVC mesh fabric for a small “sawtooth undulating shaped” walkway canopy structure featuring catenary cable edges. Big Span’s scope included design, engineering, fabrication, supply and installation of the steel support framing system for the façade, PVC mesh, clamping and hardware.
PVC membranes are produced as a mesh for shading purposes and are commonly used in tensile façade projects where natural ventilation is key, such as parking garages. PVC membrane is a fully recyclable, zero-waste industrial product.
The Quin is a $35 million venture in Charleston’s upper peninsula that will soon include a 112,635-square-foot, five-story office building. The retail and office space is surrounded by nearby entertainment venues such as Workshop, the new Flyway music venue, Edmund’s Oast, and The Wonderer, as well as outdoor recreational amenities including a ping pong area, putting greens and outdoor seating.
Partners for the project included Frampton Construction and McMillian Pazdan Smith Architecture. The Quin is owned by White Point Partners.
