Mashburn Construction completes new Coastal Conservation League headquarters
Charleston, S.C.— Spring Street, a node of Charleston within the short-term rental overlay district established by the city is experiencing an era of significant growth and development. Today, Coastal Conservation League opened the doors to its new headquarters at 131 Spring Street, a 6,000 SF downtown office building.
The Conservation League is a leading environmental advocacy and conservation nonprofit that works to protect South Carolina’s coastal resources and communities.
“As we mark 30 years of conservation success in South Carolina, the Coastal Conservation League is excited to open a new set of doors to our community,” Laura Cantral, Executive Director of the Coastal Conservation League, said. “Our headquarters at 131 Spring Street will serve as a gathering place for all who want to collaborate on new opportunities and local and statewide challenges together. On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank Mashburn Construction for transforming this historic gem into a bright, modern space that signals our next great chapter and commitment to Charleston and the Lowcountry.”
Through the (1950s and decade), the building at 131 Spring Street served as a automobile service station. In 2004, Mashburn renovated the space and added 3,000 SF, transforming it into a flower shop and operating center for Tiger Lily Florist.
To ready the building for its next role as home to the Conservation League’s Charleston team, Mashburn undertook a full interior renovation to convert retail and production space into an open-concept office that can accommodate as many as 35 staff. The new headquarters now features two conference rooms, an exposed ceiling with all-LED hanging lighting, a full kitchen and compost bin, and a shower for staff who walk or bike to work. In an effort to preserve the building’s original character and nod to its history, Mashburn also restored three arched service station bays inside the building into meeting and work space.
“This project was the definition of a truly collaborative build. We were fortunate to be able to work with Laura and the team at Coastal Conservation League and their interior designer, Hunter Floyd, to build them a place that they can grow in for years to come,” Paul Mashburn, CEO of Mashburn Construction, said.
Mashburn Construction continues to build its portfolio of historic renovations and upfit projects in Charleston, South Carolina among multiple other specialty divisions. The company supports its vision of “building better communities” by engaging in strong relationships that help make a valuable impact on the community.
