Myrtle Beach, SC — The Myrtle Beach VSCFS&S office provided fire sprinkler installation for the construction of the Hilton Grand Vacations Club in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The installation includes fire pump, standpipes, wet systems, dry systems, pre-action systems and water curtains.
“The team at VSCF&S has worked very hard providing leadership and outstanding expertise on this job,” said Gary Lee Sims, general manager for the Myrtle Beach district office.
“Our dedicated team of professionals managed many challenges including the installation in the atrium area, the sloped roof level and the decorative ceiling. I am especially proud of our expertise with regard to these architectural features as well as our team’s overall seamless coordination with the other mechanical, electrical and plumbing contractors onsite,” commented Andrew Hilton, VSCF&S project manager and designer for the Hilton project.
Opening in 2015, the 24-story resort is the tallest high-rise currently under construction along the Mid-Atlantic coast. The $41.5 million Hilton timeshare resort is the first new lodging establishment to be built in Myrtle Beach since 2009.
Construction of the 308,000 square foot oceanfront resort started in October, 2013. Upon completion, the Hilton Grand Vacations Club will feature 220 luxury residential units, a dramatic 200-foot, sky-lit atrium, a fitness center, two full-service bars and multiple pools with direct access to the beach.
“We are excited to be part of this project as it is a sign that Myrtle Beach is once again growing and thriving,” said Donald McDowell, the VSCF&S superintendent on the Hilton job. “As one of the nation’s most popular tourist destinations, we are proud that Hilton is investing in Myrtle Beach and we are delighted that our office is part of the construction of this gorgeous hotel.”
The Hilton building is designed by Columbia-based architecture firm Garvin Design Group in partnership with Tag Architecture, LLC. Landmark Construction Company is the general contractor. Myrtle Beach, known as the Grand Strand, has approximately 425 hotels, 1,700 restaurants and 100 golf courses.
