A Space to Live United

October 17, 2017

South Carolina's Midlands community has a new asset.

1818 Blanding Street, the new home of the United Way of the Midlands, has been transformed into a thriving workspace to focus on social issues, provide meeting spaces, and support a dedicated staff.

When the McWaters team first starting working on this project in 2014, they were excited to engage with the community in more than one way. The project was an opportunity to strengthen ties with their architectural and design partners, 1x1 Design and LCK, and to help create something that would bring value to the Midlands. 

Working with McWaters on this project has been great," Anna Fender Senior Interior Designer at 1x1 Design said. "The thought and attention to detail they bring to the table has made it easy to seamlessly integrate them into our team.""

The three companies worked together to turn a space made up of three separate buildings into one cohesive and functional space for the United Way. The result is a space that's modern, yet timeless and meets the needs of all the different departments and outside groups that will be using the space. 

"Our employees are excited about the new space," said Joey Wallace, VP of Marketing and Communications at the United Way of the Midlands. "It's really helped to give each department exactly what they need to be effective."
