Perhaps nowhere is there a greater example of adaptive reuse than in our hometown of Greenville, SC. Within our Central Business District, we’ve seen the far-reaching impact of adapting old structures for new purposes. Adaptive reuse brings stability to neighborhoods and opportunities for creative, collaborative work environments. These projects can also reshape existing communities and attract new construction projects.
At Trehel Corporation, we transform historic buildings into new, usable spaces while preserving their original character. Whether your project involves rehabilitation, modernization, or restoration, Trehel Corporation’s adaptive reuse experience features completed projects throughout South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.
With a diverse portfolio that includes a National Trust for Historic Preservation Award, Trehel has the specialized understanding required to rehabilitate historic structures of all scopes and sizes. From restoring a historic train depot to transforming an abandoned mill, we draw from our varied experience to ensure that your project is completed with quality, attention to detail, and careful adherence to your objectives.
At Trehel, we understand that no two adaptive reuse projects are exactly alike. Through our project approach, we provide the personalized attention and guidance you need to make your project a success. Our single-source delivery method offers all the services you need in one place, including complete preconstruction services, comparative cost analysis, and detailed budgeting and estimating.
Being open and honest without concern of reprisal or reprimand is the most productive means of managing projects. It is much better to have everyone involved working on any issues that do come up. With Trehel, I feel like I always get the most qualified and professional site superintendents, project managers, and estimators on my projects. There is no question that we are all on the same team with the same goals.
We had a great working relationship with Trehel – everyone on the team was honest and up front re: everything and explained the process in detail. It was nice to walk through the details during the entire building experience (i.e. they held our hand throughout the entire process).
They took the time necessary to answer questions, explain “the process” over and above my expectations such that I felt totally comfortable with what were about to undertake… we had built multiple residential homes, but never any commercial construction… the education, explanation, and clarity provided by Trehel made our choice a no brainer.
As a Chef and Kitchen designer I have worked with numerous contractors. Trehel was by far the most experienced in my 43 years in the industry. They listened to my concerns and worked with me day by day through challenges. It was an absolute delight to work with the Trehel project team. Total professionals and always looking out for the “owners’ and what they needed.
Trehel has always had a great reputation, they were local to us and well known for problem solving. We had been looking for an opportunity to use them when we came across our project in Athens GA.
Actually, we brought them in late to the process. We were working with other contractors and struggled to hit our budget needs. As such, we summoned Trehel’s help to get the project design back within our budget. Trehel played a critical role with recommendations that would allow us to meet our budget goals and without compromising the overall project.
I worked primarily with Greg Blinston, VP and Senior Project Manager and I can confidently say that his effort made this experience better than I thought was possible. I always felt he was working for me and we were working as a team to complete this project. There was very clear understanding of what the budget included and the timeline of how the project should go was very different from every other contractor I had worked with and a distinction from other contractors.
It is hard to imagine that I could be any happier with the experience with Trehel. If I ever have another building project, I know Trehel is where I will go and would recommend anyone to use Trehel.
We had a fourteen-million-dollar renovation project, and we had to trust that Trehel would complete it before the deadline, only five months away. There was no room for error. And Trehel delivered. We couldn’t ask for a better building partner. They truly walk the talk.
They definitely asked the right questions and were able to understand and articulate that into a plan that worked for us. They came within the exact penny they said they would. So, if you really map it out, I will say that they met the expectations of quality, price, and timing, but they exceeded expectations for how much we enjoy our building.
Every single project that Trehel has completed for the SDOC has been on time and on/below budget. The projects have also been completed just as they were designed with quality work and craftsmanship. No project is done anywhere without day-to-day construction issues that arise. When those have occurred on our projects, Trehel has been quick to resolve the problems and make sure that we are satisfied with the results. Their project managers and superintendents are up front and act with care and integrity.
I highly recommend Trehel Corporation as a General Contractor. I have personally worked on a number of construction projects and would say that Trehel Corporation and all their employees have been a true pleasure to work with. If in the future we would want to build again, Trehel Corporation would be the first company I would contact. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to discuss my experience working with Trehel Corporation.
It is difficult to explain in words the appreciation I have for the entire team at Trehel.
Our journey together began approximately 2 years ago with the complete renovation of the casual dining space in our Clubhouse. This would be the first of several projects we entrusted to Trehel at Wade Hampton Golf Club. Our projects culminated with the construction of our new employee housing building.
The membership is pleased with all the work and early responses I have heard indicate we have exceeded their expectations. I can say with confidence that Trehel will be my first choice of contractors when we take on future projects.
Trehel has been a responsible, trustworthy partner to Blue Ridge Electric for many years. We set high standards, and Trehel has always met or exceeded our expectations on every project. Trehel has also been a good community partner, which as a community-focused organization ourselves, means a lot.
