Certified by the federal government, LifePoint is the designated Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) for organ recovery services in South Carolina. LifePoint actively provides organ and tissue donor services to 62 hospitals throughout the state. Their Charleston headquarters is located at 3950 Faber Place drive and is managed by Colliers, Inc. The building is conditioned by four Trane Intellipaks, three of which were replaced a few years ago by Robert Wilson and a Cullum Constructors team. When the fourth RTU reached the end of its useful life and the time finally came to swap out and reconnect to the Trane automation system, Cullum Services got the call. The job took place on a weekend and was completed by Danny Moore, Danny Russell, Jimbo Evans, Lonnie Seegers, Jesse Noal, and Robert Clark. Perhaps some of the parts from the old unit can be repurposed to extend the life of equipment elsewhere. Charleston, SC – 2016
All around the state Cullum team members came together to celebrate the holiday season and another successful year. In Charleston there was no shortage of laughs, between Shawn O’Brien’s prize-winning Christmas sweater and Harry Horne winning the car care kit in the raffle, the day was full of comic relief. Dallas Rowe and Kevin Teets cooked a low country boil onsite in Columbia. The Greenville team enjoyed some time away from the shop at Arizona Steakhouse. Whether you had low country boil in Columbia, a traditional Christmas dinner in Charleston or enjoyed a steak in Greenville, the words of Chris Cullum apply to each of you. Chris said “…you guys make me very proud to represent the projects and services that you make possible…they are not just buildings; they provide education, health care, research, financial and military security, and transportation. That is what you guys do!” Cullum wishes each of you a safe and happy holiday season and looks forward to a bright 2017. Thank you for everything you do to make this company a success! December 2016
Cullum’s Greenville Branch Upgrades Kitchen Hood System for Greenville County Schools
Overbrook Child Development Center is one of many facilities within the Greenville County School District that provides academic assistance to area youngsters, parents, and families. Recently the Greenville division of Cullum Services, Inc. was awarded a contract to repair and improve one of the kitchen hood systems while school was out for a break. The team of foreman Todd Allison, mechanics Matt Reeves and Jason Nantz, and installers Jovany Diaz and Gerardo Riverol installed new double wall ductwork for the kitchen hood and makeup air unit. The project also included new fire wrapping on exposed gas lines. The project was managed by Esteban Uzarraga. As always, the quality of CSI’s work speaks for itself!
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has laboratories throughout the state and the Hayne Building in northeast Columbia is one such facility. The labs are used to examine numerous infectious diseases in humans and animals. As such, the building is ventilated by 100% outside air at all times. When one of the 500-ton chillers serving the building recently failed, Cullum Services was called in to provide and connect an emergency rental chiller to sustain the load until the permanent chiller could be repaired. CSI teamed with Blanchard Power Systems to have a chiller onsite the next day. Our crew of Eddie Rowe, Eben Thomas, and George Jones had the machine fully piped, powered, and operational the next day, much to the relief of DHEC.
Shem Creek Office Building & Parking Garage Underway
Many of you may have seen the headlines surrounding the new four-story office building overlooking Shem Creek and Coleman Boulevard, but did you know Cullum is the mechanical contractor for the project? Shem Creek runs through the center of Mount Pleasant and is known for its waterfront dining. This 42,000 square foot Class A office building includes two stories of office space and two stories of structured parking. David Burbage and his team are installing sanitary waste and storm piping, domestic water, roof top units and associated ductwork. The building encompasses the entire site and forced David’s team to carry the majority of the material by hand throughout construction. Thanks to the hard work and strong backs of Mike Shirley, Joey Godbold, Doug Williams, Frank Lewis and David Burbage, Cullum is ahead of schedule. Nice work guys!
