Teaming Up Through Design-Build Projects

Over the years, the team at Coastal Structures has been fortunate enough to work with Tych & Walker Architects on a number of projects throughout the Grand Strand. Tych & Walker is a full service architectural firm based out of Pawleys Island. With more than 20 years of experience, they have a seasoned awareness of the region that enables them to respond with the sensitivity to the local culture. The main advantage of working alongside another tenured local company is the combined understanding of the needs of our community, knowing the requirements of our coastal conditions and the heartfelt care that is put into building a better environment for our neighbors.

Coastal Structures and Tych & Walker Architects have completed several design-build projects together. Take a look:

The City of Georgetown Fire Station #2 was a much-anticipated project that was completed in April 2018. Located in Maryville, the 8,200 square foot fire station has two drive-thru apparatus large bays with adjacent comfortable amenities to accommodate fire fighters’ 24 – 48 hour shifts. The firehouse features a large day space for relaxation and training activities, a large commercial kitchen as well as small gym.

The Murrells Inlet Community Center has been a cultural hub for the community. The center houses a community theatre space including design and prop storage, multiple meeting rooms, offices for the recreation staff as well as a Magistrate Court Judge Office, administrative office and court/assembly space.

Georgetown Kraft Credit Union: Designed as a headquarters facility, this building was our Teams third with Georgetown Kraft Credit Union, having previously worked on the Kingstree and Andrews Branch projects. The facility includes multiple executive level offices, staff areas, a large conference room, training facility, and an open floor plan downstairs.

Mellow Mushroom Murrells Inlet is approximately 6,000 square foot restaurant, featuring an interior bar and dining area, exposed kitchen space, large covered outdoor bar that can be closed, as well as an open-air patio space.

“By using the design/build as a project delivery system, the Tych & Walker and Coastal Structures team has had great success. In addition to single-point responsibility for the design and construction of the project, design/build projects results in other advantages for the owner, such as reduced risk, improved quality, lower costs, less time from concept to completion, and reduced administrative burden. The entire team is working to achieve the same goal.” Michael Walker, Principal in Charge of Tych & Walker Architects.

“Looking back over the past few years, it has been an honor to have worked with Tych & Walker Architects to construct these buildings that are serving local residents with important services for their health, safety and education,” said Brad Jenkins, project manager at Coastal Structures who led these projects. “It has been extremely beneficial to work with a likeminded local company who shares the same commitment to provide thoughtful design and exceptional care to our customers and community.”
