Columbia, S.C. (October 23, 2019) – Hood Construction Corporation is actively engaged in the expansion of its current Columbia headquarters, following the purchase of the former Morris Furniture Warehouse building located at 1215 Shop Road. The 40,000-square-foot industrial property on two acres, which has been effectively vacant since 2009, will become the new home to Hood Construction’s corporate office, providing additional space for increased operational capacity.
The locally-owned commercial construction firm founded by Mark Hood, President & CEO, in 1986 is responsible for scores of highly-publicized projects in Columbia, Charleston, Greenville and other areas throughout the state. Easily recognized Columbia projects include Terminix Headquarters off I-26, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, 701 Whaley, City Market, the McNair Aerospace Center, Hendrix Restaurant, City Market,1801 Grille and numerous others.
George McCutchen, CCIM, SIOR of Wilson Kibler represented Hood and James Rogers and Lee Marsha, also of Wilson Kibler, represented the landlord in the purchase. McCutchen said of the sale, “Mark’s can-do approach to adaptive reuse (and new) projects, and hard-working character is why Hood Construction has been so successful over the last 33 years. The firm’s culture is driven by a client-focused approach, and it clearly shows in the highly-successful outcomes of their projects.”
1215 Shop Rd. was constructed in 1950 and initially housed a cut & sew garment factory of womenswear. It was later expanded and renovated to include a fiberglass, boat manufacturing plant until Morris Furniture’s warehousing and retail sales opened in the 1970’s.
