Video: CH2M Hill donates thousands of historic architectural drawings to Spartanburg County Library

Thursday, August 29

Company designed and built Montgomery Building, many other local landmarks

 

If you've ever seen the Montgomery Building or the Evans Building (now the downtown campus of Spartanburg Community College), you've seen the work of Lockwood Greene. The architectural and engineering firm, which was bought by CH2M Hill in 2003, worked extensively in the local textile industry, and had offices in the Montgomery Building until 1966. 

 

Now a large part of the local history of Lockwood Greene will be housed at the Spartanburg County Library Headquarters downtown. CH2M Hill is donating thousands of architectural drawings, photographs, and other historically significant documents to the library, preserving the legacy of the company behind so many of our city's landmarks.

 

See below for video with Mike McKelvy, President of CH2M Hill's Government, Environment, and Infrastructure Division and photos of the collection.
