Huguenot Mill

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Harper performed the interior and exterior renovation of this two-story cotton mill, originally built in 1882, that is located within the Reedy River Industrial Complex. The overall goal of the renovation was to bring to life the open space while highlighting the building's original, historical features.

Harper served as the Construction Manager At-Risk performing the preconstruction, site preparation, and building construction operations for the Huguenot Mill, a two-story cotton mill located within the Reedy River Industrial Complex. This area is steeped with history as many structures were constructed in the mid-19th century and early 20th century.

Originally constructed in 1882, the Hugenot Mill was first renovated in 1980 and marked by the Greenville County Historic Preservation Commission. During the time of construction, the Hugenott Mill was coming off the heels of the Industrial Age and served as a shining example of up-and-coming design techniques. The mill, which manufactured plaids, cottonades, and gingham, was the only mill of its kind in the state.
Harper’s job was to renovate the interior and exterior of this structure, brining to life the open space while highlighting the building’s original, historical features.
