Savannah's St. Joseph's-Candler Hospital Expansion Completed
January 24, 2017
It’s been thrilling to work on the St. Joseph’s expansion in Savannah, GA. Our work in this project included structural design for the Emergency Department, a two-story volume atrium, renovated outpatient areas, drive-through canopies, an ambulance canopy, and a new helipad for the hospital.
As the structural consultants, we’ve had the privilege of working with Batson Associates and JE Dunn Construction Group to bring the dreams of St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital to life. One of Fuller Group’s principal engineers, Lucas Young, was delighted to visit the site a few days before the January 23rd opening day.
The 17,000-square-foot expansion is the first phase of a $21.6 million, 18-month expansion. This investment will bring dramatic progress to the hospital and the way patients are cared for. The completion of this first phase is exciting for all of Savannah.

PC's Neville Hall Renovation Underway
November 16, 2016
In October of 2015, Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC announced its campaign to renovate and expand Neville Hall. Serving as one of the main classroom buildings for the campus, Neville Hall was built in 1907 and last renovated in 1988.
As the Project Engineer, Fuller Group had the unique opportunity to work with Craig Gaulden Davis Architecture and Martin Meek Architecture in preserving the building’s beautiful, colonial-styled Georgian design. Fuller’s scope of services included exciting features like reopening the original rotunda, reframing the second floor, and adding a three-story expansion.
Presbyterian College held Neville Hall’s topping out ceremony yesterday, November 15. According to the college’s website, “the ceremony comes from a Scandinavian tradition and occurs when the last beam on the building’s steel frame is added. An American flag and fir tree are added to the beam and it is placed on the frame.”
The addition is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2017, ready for classes to start in the fall.
Greenville Humane Society Adds Medical Facility
November 05, 2016
The Greenville Humane Society facility was completed in 2011 and that same year, won the American Institute of Architect Greenville Merit Award. Fuller Group was the Engineer of Record for the building and partnered with the project team members to create an outstanding facility for the Humane Society. This was one of Bill’s “pet” projects and the company has continued supporting the organization over the years by participating in “dog house” competitions among other ways.
In 2016, the no-kill animal shelter earned a perfect score from Charity Navigator, making it the number one animal-welfare organization in the nation.
Fuller will be working with the project team and architecture firm, McMillan Pazdan Smith to feature a facility expansion in 2017, a culmination of the Society’s efforts with their Expanding Our Paw Print Campaign.
