Project Overview

Bell was the Mechanical and Plumbing Design-Assist subcontractor for the MUSC Health – West Campus. The project was a two-story 122,000 SF renovation and re-purpose of a former JC Penney store at the Citadel Mall in the West Ashley area of Charleston, South Carolina. Includes Ambulatory Surgery, Imaging, Urgent Care, and clinical exam rooms. The renovated building has multiple drop off/pick up canopy locations along with a full-service loading dock.

Bell was selected by M.B. Kahn Construction as the Design-Assist Subcontractor after submitting an Initial GMP Estimate derived from preliminary project narratives. During the four-month preconstruction period, Bell worked diligently with the owner, Architect/Engineer, and General Contractor, to finalize the mechanical and plumbing design and ultimately achieving a final GMP, producing a $1MM savings to the project.
