Gearing Up for Training
Thompson Turner Construction was hired to provide CM At-Risk Services for The Continuum, started by mega-philanthropist Darla Moore. With its first students enrolled in August 2019, The Continuum is a building where Francis Marion University and Florence-Darlington Technical College will serve as a one-stop-shop for an associate’s degree and everything short of it.
The project includes the use of custom glulam “Y” shaped columns that support a structural dowel laminate timber (DLT) deck, which will create a clerestory slice through the building to introduce natural light and provide an opportunity for wayfinding through the existing ‘big box’ footprint.
The Continuum is the recipient of the 2020 U.S. WoodWorks Wood Design Award for Regional Excellence.
