22 West Edge

Located in Charleston, SC, the new 8 story office building will house 150,000 square feet of class A office space with ground level retail.  The building is intended for tenants focusing on research and development, laboratory space, and innovation.

The structural system consists of composite structural steel framing supporting concrete slabs on composite metal deck to achieve long interior clear spans and minimize the mass of the structure, thereby minimizing the lateral seismic forces.  Charleston’s large wind and seismic design lateral forces are resisted by Buckling Restrained Braced Frames at the building core.  The ground level slab is a cast-in-place concrete slab system over a crawl space.  The structure is supported by a deep foundation system consisting of cast in place concrete pile caps on piles.
