Huguenot Mill Façade Improvements & Peace Center Backstage Renovations

The project for the Peace Center for the Performing Arts in Greenville, SC provided interior finish upgrades to performers’ dressing rooms and hallways, while a complete renovation of the Green Room exposes the historic brick and wood structure. Additionally, all new and added bathrooms better serve staff and performers and artists.

Outside, the exterior façade and entryway of the historic Huguenot Mill creates an accessible door to the Peace Center’s administrative offices with new landscaping and hardscape that ties to the existing plaza on Main Street. Designed by Craig Gaulden Davis Architects, new glass canopies, custom arched doors, and new exterior lighting have been updated, respecting the original mill’s architecture.

This 8-month renovation project was a difficult project where the entire staff moved multiple times to accommodate the construction. Triangle's Edgar Jackson was assigned as Site Superintendent to work with a building full of architects! He quickly won over the entire firm with his incredible personality and can-do attitude. He led a team of his own crew and many subcontractors very professionally. We have such confidence in his abilities that we request him each time we have additional work to do here. Many project superintendents delegate all of the work; Edgar not only delegates and manages well, he actually does much of the work himself.
