CARNEGIE LIBRARY OFFICES
Beaufort built it’s Carnegie Library in 1918, one of 13 in the State of South Carolina. The building functioned as a library, City offices and now the Chamber of Commerce General Office and Meeting rooms.
The Brown Design scope of work was to clean up and repair basic exterior items such as wood rot, renovation of the major reading room into a large conference room and layout for the chamber staff. Funds were not available for the total renovation of the interior spaces but major challenges were system replacement, technology upgrades and plaster repair.
