Pyramid Contracting Breaks Ground on New OC Tech Campus in Holly Hill

HOLLY HILL, SC – Pyramid Contracting, in collaboration with Orangeburg County, initiated the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Orangeburg-Calhoun Tech Campus in Holly Hill on May 13.

Dr. Walton Tobin, the president of OC Tech, highlights the significance of the new campus, emphasizing its role in expanding educational opportunities for residents in rural Orangeburg.

“Our commitment is to serve the residents of Orangeburg and Calhoun County and the fact that this site is somewhere around 35 minutes away from Orangeburg our main campus,” said Dr. Tobin. “It creates access for students who live in this area who otherwise may not get to our main campus.”

Tobin says the facility is needed for the growth in the southern part of the county.

“We’re really just excited to expand our footprint in this part of Orangeburg County with the development that’s happening in the Low Country,” said Dr. Tobin. “I think it positions the college and this community to thrive.”

The renovation is expected to cost $2.2 million dollars, turning the second floor of the old Holly Hill Middle School into the new 13,000 square foot satellite campus.

“We are honored to partner once again with Orangeburg County to realize the vision of the new OC Tech Campus in Holly Hill”, said Terry Prince, VP of General Construction at Pyramid Contracting’s Charleston office.

OC Tech’s satellite campus in Holly Hill is expected to welcome students in Fall of 2025.
