The Rainwater Building Receives South Carolina Historic Preservation Honor Award


MHA client, BCN Holdings, Inc., is the recipient of a 2016 South Carolina Honor Award for their rehabilitation of the Rainwater Building in Downtown Florence. Built in 1921, the Rainwater Building now serves as offices for locally based Med-Enroll Corporation and Employ Reward Solutions. This award acknowledges the exemplary historic preservation of the building that included returning the primary storefront on the first floor to the historic 1930s scheme.

This rehabilitation is indicative of the revitalization the city of Florence is currently undergoing. With its location across West Evans Street from the recently renovated Florence Hotel, it contributes to the corridor of progress along this historic downtown streetscape. In addition, it is estimated that Med-Enroll will contribute upwards of 150 employment opportunities in Downtown Florence.

We are proud to have been part of the team on this important Main Street rehabilitation project. Congratulations!
