GREER, SC - Studio 8 provided comprehensive architectural, engineering and construction administration for this new 50-unit, 55,782 SF, three-story, multi-family housing complex.

This was a developer driven project which progressed through the South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority (SC Housing). SC Housing programs finance construction of affordable housing throughout the state. The agency awards federal housing tax credits, low-interest loans, tax-exempt bond allocations and trust fund assistance annually through a competitive application process.
As part of the application process, Studio 8 provided preliminary site plan concept renderings and drawings which outline and specify building locations, amenities, accessible units, and accessible pedestrian and vehicular circulation routes. This architectural and engineering component are critical elements of the application and must be completed accurately to ensure funding.
