With the fall season came the opening of Neville Hall at Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC. Neville Hall, with its Georgian Revival style architecture standing on the highest ground of the campus, has served as the center of the college since 1907.
Over the past two years, Fuller Group’s structural engineers have teamed up with the talented crew at Craig Gaulden Davis to restore the historic building. Reframing upper floors, adding an expansion named the Cornelson Center, and engineering the reopening of the original rotunda were a few of Fuller’s most exciting tasks on this project.
Presbyterian College hosted a tour of the renewed building on August 17, and opened the hall officially in October.

This month, Brasfield & Gorrie topped out the new Clemson School of Nursing building, which has been in construction since the end of January. The topping out last week marks the completion of the final level of the $31.5 million building.
Clemson University and the Greenville Health System are collaborating to develop the Center for Nursing, Health Innovation and Research. The facility, located in Greenville, SC, will make it possible for Clemson to expand their Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
Fuller Group, Inc. provided structural engineering services for the four-story, 78,000-square-foot concrete structure. The project team has included Brasfield & Gorrie, Batson Architects, and Hughes Development Corporation. We are eager to see students start their coursework at the new center in fall 2018.

Fuller Envelope presents at ASTM Symposium on durability of sealants
June 19, 2017
In mid-June, Fuller Group attended and presented at the ASTM Fifth Symposium on the Durability of Building and Construction Sealants and Adhesives. The conference was a two-day event held at the Sheraton Centre Hotel located in Toronto, ON. The symposium was well attended by manufacturers, contractors, and consultants and consisted of over 20 presentations discussing the research, performance, and current trends of sealants in the construction industry.
During the symposium, David VanDommelen, AIA, of our Fuller Envelope division, presented a case study on the investigation and role of sealants and spray-foam insulation in the repair of the air barrier for a condominium complex located on the east coast in North Carolina. Look for the paper discussing the case study to be published in 2017 in the ASTM STP: Selected Technical Papers from the symposium. Fuller was grateful to have the opportunity to present at the symposium and thanks ASTM Committee C24 and the Sheraton Centre for organizing and hosting the conference.
Also during the ASTM Committee week in Toronto, Mr. VanDommelen received the Award of Appreciation for his continued support of ASTM Committee C24 on Building Seals and Sealants.
