in News by

The renovation of a space for the Beaufort Digital Corridor’s BASEcamp, is underway.

The approximately 5,000-thousand-square foot facility at 500 Carteret St. is located in downtown Beaufort a few blocks from Bay Street.

The renovation project is beginning just over 30 days since the unveiling of the Beaufort Digital Corridor by the city of Beaufort and is expected to be ready for occupancy in November.

“BASEcamp will soon become Beaufort’s premier business incubator and co-working office designed to meet the transitional professional office space needs of tech and tech-related entrepreneurs seeking adaptable, affordable office and conference facilities of the highest quality, while gaining access to the network of entrepreneurs and professionals in both Beaufort and Charleston,” according to a press release.

BASEcamp will also support Beaufort’s local creative arts community through the “BASEcamp Gallery.”

“The development of BASEcamp represents a tangible and primary step forward as part of the Beaufort Digital Corridor’s comprehensive long-term economic strategy in support of tech-focused entrepreneurs,” said Stephen Murray, Beaufort Redevelopment Commission member and city councilman.

“Our goal with the development of BASEcamp is to create a modern, highly flexible, welcoming (and oh, by the way, dog-friendly) workplace that allows entrepreneurs to focus on achieving their business goals while also being conducive to collaboration,” said Ernest Andrade, project manager and Charleston Digital Corridor director.

The Beaufort Digital Corridor is a community-sourced business initiative to attract, nurture and promote the city’s knowledge economy through an array of programs, products and events while leveraging the city’s renowned livability.
