General Overview: This 26,000 SF project will be the new face of the existing CRL campus in Charleston, SC.

A 480 voltage electrical service is provided to the building and then distributed to all major equipment.  Transformers provide 208V power to serve workstations and general power needs. A photovoltaic solar panel array is planned to increase the building’s sustainability.
