Berkeley Electric Cooperative - John's Island

Berkeley Electric needed to upgrade their outdated facilities at their Johns Island, South Carolina location to better serve their members. Due to the proximity to the coast, all of the buildings were designed to withstand CAT IV Hurricane winds up to 156 mph and large missile impacts utilizing tilt-up concrete construction. The buildings consist of a new single-story office, vehicle and equipment storage, warehouse building with attached covered material storage and a separate maintenance building with attached covered vehicle storage building. The office building is composed of a steel structure with structural tilt-up concrete exterior and standing seam metal roofing over metal deck and light gage metal trusses. The enclosed vehicle and equipment storage, warehouse, and maintenance buildings are composed of pre-engineered metal building structure with tilt-up concrete insulated sandwich panel veneer with standing seam metal roofing. The covered and vehicle storage buildings are composed of open-air pre-engineered metal building structure with standing seam metal roofing.
