McCrory Construction, South Carolina’s oldest general contractor, announced that construction is well underway on a major upfit project for Cooperative Electric Energy Utility Supply, Inc. (CEEUS) in West Columbia. McCrory is providing design-assist, preconstruction and construction services for the build-out of a 247,000-square-foot concrete shell building purchased by CEEUS earlier this year. Located about a mile from CEEUS’ existing facility, the project is scheduled for completion in Summer 2024.
The majority of CEEUS’ new headquarters and warehouse facility is dedicated to heated warehouse space to house increased levels of inventory; however, McCrory is also building-out a two-story administrative area with high-end finishes, resulting in triple the amount of office space. McCrory’s scope of work for the project encompasses full mechanical, electrical and plumbing; addition of an elevator; installation of two pre-engineered buildings for storage; and construction of an entrance road. Building components include a state-of-the-art testing lab and a tool repair shop.
Established in 1974 by the South Carolina Electric Cooperatives, CEEUS, along with its wholly owned subsidiary Line Equipment Sales, Inc., serves electric cooperatives, municipalities, investor-owned utilities and electrical contractors across South Carolina. In addition to electrical materials, the company offers personal protective equipment (PPE) testing and a tool repair service.
