Charter NEX Films engaged Cox and Dinkins to perform surveying and civil engineering services for the development of their first industrial production facility in South Carolina. The site is located in Carolina Pines Industrial Park, a Richland County public-private partnership formed to spur industrial growth in the region, approximately one mile from I-77 and next to a Norfolk Southern rail spur, making it an ideal location for their nation-wide product distribution.
The development consists of more than 120,000 square feet of office space, production areas, and warehouse storage, four new railroad spurs, two detention ponds, a new entrance road to serve Carolina Pines Industrial Park.
Protecting existing wetlands and creeks adjacent to the development, relocating multiple utility mains to accommodate the placement of the building, and working with the site’s steep topography were among the many challenges to the development of this site.
