MSK Begins the Exterior Repairs of Historic Charleston Landmark
We have officially begun the scaffolding on the infamous “Skyscraper of Charleston.” MSK Construction, Inc. is excited and honored to have been awarded the exterior maintenance and repairs project for this historic Charleston landmark, The People’s Building at 18 Broad Street. After working closely with the very knowledgeable staff at the Historic Charleston Foundation, Board of Architectural Review and the various departments at the City of Charleston we have received the green light on this project.
As we embark on this maintenance, we want to begin by thanking all owners and tenants for their patience during construction. These repairs will remedy key deficiencies in addition to ensuring that this Charleston gem remains preserved for generations to come. This project entails working to repair exterior deficiencies which will include repairing the cracks in the masonry, granite and grout, refinishing handrails, windows and reviving any deteriorated paint.
“With the morning sun the south and east elevations of the Peoples’ Building look really good. It’s so much cleaner if that makes sense. The colors really pop.”
