Charles Stuart Named Columbia’s Best & Brightest 35 and Under

Hood Construction Company is pleased to congratulate Charles Stuart, LEED AP, Hood Senior Project Manager, as being named one of Columbia’s Best and Brightest 35 and Under Class of 2017. The honor, released annually by Columbia Business Monthly, is described as a list of the Midlands’, “…Powerful business leaders under 35 who have excelled professionally and in their communities.”

To be named to a list of individuals believed to have “Accomplished great things in their company, their industry, and in their community” is an honor for Stuart, who has been with Hood Construction for five years. Charles possesses a passion and focus on the training and awareness of the next generation of construction professionals. As part of this, he has volunteered to speak to Construction Science Management classes at Clemson University, facilitates tours of job sites for young people interested in construction, and serves on Clemson’s Industry Advisory Board. An avid outdoorsman, Charles also serves as a committee member with the Columbia Chapter of the South Carolina Coastal Conservation Association. In this role, he has worked to help elevate the local chapter from below average production, to the top producing chapter in the state for the past two years. Charles has also worked with Habitat for Humanity, serving as a volunteer on ten different residential construction projects for families throughout the state.

Charles has produced numerous successful client projects throughout the Midlands, and the state. Recent projects include the historic Barnes Student Activity Center at Clemson University, two new facilities for Goodwill of the Midlands/Upstate SC, Bottles Beverage Superstore, Gray Collegiate Academy, McNAIR Center for Aerospace Innovation at SCRA, Palmetto Health Ballentine, Inbra Industries in Orangeburg, and the City of Sumter’s new Municipal Complex (currently under construction).

Hood Construction Installs B757 Cockpit at EdVentureJun 13, 2017

Boeing 757 cockpit was lifted into the second floor of EdVenture Friday by Hood Construction

It was an exciting morning last Friday at EdVenture as the Hood Construction team lifted a Boeing 757 cockpit and 747 engine cowling into the second floor for a new exhibit, titled "FLIGHT"!

The carefully coordinated effort consisting of Hood Construction, JHS Architecture: Integrated Design, Mabry Engineering Associates, and D&T Steel, was led by Hood team members Ladd James and Jeremy Rowe. The lifts began with the engine cowling at 7:00am — just as the sun was illuminating the Gervais Street Bridge along the back of the site. Once those pieces were safely inside the building, the cockpit “flew” once more via crane to its new home on the second floor exterior wall of the children’s museum. This exciting educational exhibit will teach children the forces of flight, highlight the career opportunities available in South Carolina related to aviation, and create the sensation of flight for children who climb inside the cockpit overlooking the bridge. The 747 engine cowling, once re-assembled, will be on display for children to view, touch, and even stand inside of to understand its enormous scale.

Hood Construction is a community sponsor of the FLIGHT exhibit, and is excited for the educational benefits it will provide to each child who visits. FLIGHT will open later this summer.
