VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
A HOUSE RESOLUTION
TO CONGRATULATE CONTRACT CONSTRUCTION OF IRMO AT THE CELEBRATION OF ITS THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY AND TO WISH THE COMPANY MANY MORE YEARS OF PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS.
Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that Contract Construction of Irmo is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary this year, and marked the anniversary with a wonderful anniversary celebration at the Township Auditorium on July 31; and
Whereas, John Farley, who founded Contract Construction in 1984, grew the business out of his garage. From this humble beginning has come a wellrespected company with a current roster of thirtyseven employees, among them Greg Hughes, who joined the firm as a project manager and became president in October 2013; and
Whereas, the company, a general contractor, has been engaged in commercial construction work since its inception and has identified K12 and highereducation facilities as its niche market; and
Whereas, among its highprofile projects are the renovations and additions to Township Auditorium; the University of South Carolina’s Baseball Stadium, Arnold School of Public Health, and West and East Quad dormitories; West Columbia City Hall; Shandon Baptist Church; Spring Valley High School additions and renovations; and Florence County Library; and
Whereas, several projects just finished around the Columbia area include the fivestory Science and Engineering Building at Midlands Technical College’s Northeast Campus; Lake Carolina Elementary School Upper Campus for Richland School District Two; River Bluff High School Athletic Complex and Deerfield Elementary School for Lexington School District One; Tuskers (Kenya Café) renovation on the campus of Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens; and Dutch Fork High School additions and renovations; and
Whereas, based on the increasing number of projects the company presently has underway in the Charleston area, on July 1, 2014, Contract Construction has opened a new office on Daniel Island. Projects in this area include Nexton Elementary School, Foxbank Elementary School, and Philip Simmons Elementary School and Middle School for the Berkeley County School District; and Laing Middle School and Career and Technology Academy for the Charleston County School District. Recently, the company won a $17.2 million contract for the Science Annex II Building on the campus of Coastal Carolina University in Conway; and
Whereas, wishing the company all the best in the years to come, the House takes great pleasure in congratulating Contract Construction on three decades of successful and repected work in the Palmetto State. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, congratulate Contract Construction of Irmo at the celebration of its thirtieth anniversary and wish the company many more years of prosperity and success.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to the Contract Construction Company of Irmo.
