ersonalized attention, high-quality work and client relationships built on trust have fortified HITT Contracting for over two decades in the Charleston market.
Over the past 20 years, HITT has left a lasting footprint on the community with notable projects such as:
- Fort Sumter Tour Boat Facility
- Kress Building Historic Renovation
- Memminger Elementary on Beaufain Street
- Addlestone Library at the College of Charleston
- Sprinter Van Facility Conversion and Expansion for Daimler
- Numerous projects for The Boeing Co.
HITT Contracting also has worked on countless projects at local government installations in support of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Department of State, Coast Guard, Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, SPAWAR and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
“After 20 years, HITT has become woven into the fabric of Charleston through its commitment to our community and the great facilities and workspaces we build for great companies,” said Carson Knizevski, Senior Vice President.
Established in 1937 in Virginia, the company first came to Charleston after winning a Navy contract. “Russell Hitt, the former president and current chairman, had the foresight to see Charleston as an emerging area,” Knizevski said.
HITT recently completed work on the Charleston International Airport Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program, the American College of the Building Arts historic renovation, and freight handling upgrades for the S.C. State Ports Authority.
Expert project teams at HITT offer a range of experience in various types of construction, including industrial and manufacturing, government, corporate interiors, historic renovation, health care, hospitality, higher education and technology or mission-critical work.
With Charleston’s commercial construction industry booming, HITT is staying busy and solidifying its role as a key player able to take on a wide range of projects, such as the $8.5 million Volvo Training Center, a 48,000-square-foot, two-story employee training facility.
You can also see HITT’s work in the new $9.5 million Daniel Island Square project, a 44,000-square-foot, four-story office building with a brewery and live entertainment venue on the ground floor.
Keeping pace with Charleston’s growth, HITT has no plans to slow down. Looking ahead, Knizevski said he anticipates “continued expansion and growth through the relationships we’ve made over the past 20 years and the development of new ones as Charleston continues to grow.”
