Prefabricated Steel Flex Space Building in North Charleston, South Carolina

Sunward Steel manufactured and delivered a pre-engineered multiuse metal building, to North Charleston, South Carolina, in January 2022. Now part of a retail center, the clear-span steel building contains versatile flex space well-suited for retail, office, warehouse or other uses. 

The flex space building was designed to offer rentable units to businesses in the area, giving tenants the freedom to tailor each space to their unique needs.  The units can be used as warehouse, retail, or office space.  Each unit offers a variety of windows, roll-up doors and storefront doors.  The complex also features awnings above the doors and windows to create shade and add charm to the exterior façade.
