Message From The President

For the first time the Doerre logo is proudly flying on a tower crane above one of our projects. Located on Markley Street in Greenville, SC, just behind Fluor Field, the crane is whirling about delivering forms, rebar and concrete as we construct the cast-in-place podium for Markley Place, a 38-unit condominium project. In August, pre-fabricated steel posts, walls, trusses and deck will be delivered and erected. Weather permitting, the entire building frame will be erected in 9-10 weeks. Occupancy is scheduled for Spring of 2019.

We are excited to be involved in Markley Place for several reasons. First, it is a very hip five-story steel and concrete urban infill building. Most importantly, we are continuing our relationship with Terry Birch, building our second residential development in Greenville, SC.  Starting last fall we worked in collaboration with Terry, Johnson Design Group, and Prescient the building structure subcontractor to get the project designed, budgeted and permitted. This will be the first Prescient framed structure in Greenville and it will not be the last. What makes the Prescient system unique is that the entire structure, including interior walls and stairs, are fabricated in Mebane, NC and will be shipped to the project for erection, very much like an erector set of old. While it takes many hours of planning and coordination, the construction time and dollar savings are substantial. We are convinced that this system will become more common and we plan to be involved in this new market segment.

It is a huge opportunity for Doerre to be on the front line of a new building technology. We want to thank Terry Birch and his team for the trust they have shown in allowing us to be the General Contractor at Markley Place.
