Taylors Fire & Sewer District Breaks Ground on New Fire Headquarters

Posted on September 14, 2023

On Tuesday, September 12, 2023 the Taylors Fire and Sewer District held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new fire department headquarters. The ceremony took place at 463 W. Main St. in Taylors, where the new fire department will be built. Fire Chief Bobby Baker, Commissioner Chairman Jeff Hannah, Chris Bowen with Hogan Construction, and Mike Pry with DP3 Architects all gave remarks during the ceremony.

Established in 1958 as a Special Purpose District, Taylors Fire serves a large area that includes a variety of industrial, business, church, school, and residential development. Creating a new headquarters for this growing area of Greenville County will address the facility design needs for the fire department and serve as a beacon of safety and security to the community.

Located at the intersection of a major highway and main street leading to downtown, this new building will serve as a gateway to Taylors, SC. Architectural forms and materials will be reminiscent of the Historic Southern Bleachery Mill, originally constructed in 1924, and the Enoree River train trestle which carried the first Southern Railway tracks from Charlotte to Greenville constructed in 1873. Both have strong ties to the history of this community and are still in use today.

The new 23,050-square-foot fire headquarters will contain administrative offices, a community meeting/training room, three drive-thru apparatus bays and 1 back-in bay, along with firefighter living and work areas. The new campus also includes a new 4,450-square-foot fleet maintenance building servicing apparatus for the entire department.

DP3 Architects is privileged to design facilities that serve local first responders and communities. We look forward to working with the team at Hogan Construction on the Taylors Fire & Rescue Headquarters through the remainder of the design process and through to construction.

The City of Rock Hill Announces McGirt Auditorium Renovations

Posted on September 14, 2023

On September 12, 2023, the City of Rock Hill held a ceremony to announce renovation plans for McGirt Auditorium at Emmett Scott Recreation Center.  Mayor John Gettys and City Councilmembers Derrick Lindsay and Perry Sutton spoke about the facility’s history, and its impact on the community. City officials and community members demolished a pre-made brick wall in front of the auditorium in honor of the renovations to come.

Prior to being a recreation center, the facility was the first public school for African Americans in Rock Hill.  In 1960, the Emmett Scott School opened McGirt Auditorium which was used for homecomings, pageants, student assemblies and performances.  The Emmett Scott School was closed when South Carolina schools were desegregated in 1970 and became a recreation center. The center and auditorium have been a place for neighborhood connection ever since. The renovated auditorium will provide a new, modern space for events and conferences, cultural performances, reunions, competitions, and more.

The renovation will consist of updating the existing lobby, restrooms, stage area, stage lights, the sound system, curtains, and dressing rooms. Additional work will include renovation of the existing courtyard with new exterior canopies and landscaping.

DP3 Architects is privileged to design facilities that serve local communities. We look forward to working with The City of Rock Hill on the McGirt Auditorium renovation through the remainder of the design process and throughout construction.

Reidville Area Fire Station Wins Design Award

Posted on May 15, 2023

DP3 Architects is pleased to announce that the Reidville Fire Station received the 2022 Building of the Year Award as part of Metallic Building Systems 2022 Design Build Awards. Every year, Metallic recognizes excellent projects that feature their state-of-the-art metal building frame systems.

The design team at DP3 Architects worked closely with the Reidville community and department to create a design that would reflect the rural landscape and complement similar buildings in the area. The side wings of the building are skinned in metal roof and wall panels to match the apparatus bay, giving a unified look to the building. The design team chose durable materials and colors to minimize maintenance costs for the department while ensuring maximum efficiency and comfort.

Special thanks to the Reidville Area Fire Department, Roebuck Building Company, DeVita & Associates, and SeamonWhiteside+ for their partnership in bringing this project to reality.

Interior Design Material Boards

Posted on February 27, 2023

Design projects rely heavily on visual tools that illustrate the project’s overall mood and tone. Material boards, or flat lays, are one of the tools designers at DP3 Architects use to hone their visual ideas and convey the look and feel of a space to our clients.

By definition, a material board is an assemblage of colors, textures, prints, materials, or other design elements that evoke the style of a project. These elements may contain samples of; furniture and upholstery fabrics, woods, tiles, metals, stones, and wall coverings that are gathered during the design process and conceptualization stage and serve as inspiration for what the project will look like. Material boards can not only speak to the visual elements of a project, but also the ambiance the designer wants to create. Selecting finishes for a project is more than just finding a color scheme – it’s about selecting materials that will improve the quality of the space and enhance the user’s experience.

Take a look at our curated Pinterest board to get inspiration for your next project.

Creating connections…building better hometowns

Cities and towns have multiple “lines of business” that may be as diverse as fire service and finance or personnel and parks. All intersect with one another and create connect points to the daily lives of the people who live and work in our hometowns. Hometown leaders have the responsibility to coordinate these services and cultivate these connections to make their cities and towns great places for residents, businesses and visitors.

The Annual Meeting also offers connect points for those who attend. It is the place where ideas, best practices, inspiring speakers and attendees come together to collaborate, learn from one another and be infused with new energy and enthusiasm for public service.
