Lexington-based Hill Construction Co. recently completed a project at Columbia International University (CIU) and also participated in groundbreaking on a new athletic facility in Northeast Columbia.

Hill Construction completed Launch! at the John R. Cook, Jr. Business and Entrepreneurship Center on CIU's campus. Launch! is a collaboration between CIU and area businesses and ministries. This design-build project was completed with Talmage Architects.

Launch! fosters hands-on educational opportunities that equip students to become business leaders. It will assist students with internships and resumes, host seminars and workshops, and encourage collaboration between students and organizations.

Hill Construction also joined Talmage Architects to break ground on Sonny's SportsPlex, an indoor courts facility offering league play, open gym, and personal training. Located in Northeast Columbia, the facility will offer youth around the state to participate in year-round competitive sports for basketball and volleyball.

The 16,000 square foot facility will feature two full sized courts. Sonny’s is expected to open in the spring of 2018.
