A team that included Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a regional full-service construction firm, Agracel, Inc., project developer, and McMillan Pazdan Smith, project architect, has completed a highly tactical renovation, including an addition, for global management consulting and technology firm Booz Allen Hamilton in Charleston.
The total project spanned 75,000 square feet and included a 34,500-square foot office addition, an 8,000-square foot connector, a 34,500-square foot renovation to the existing facility, and close to 450 parking spaces. The project became more complex when a non-construction related fire event occurred in an existing building at the project site in July 2016. This building was deemed a total loss, and Frampton Construction started on the rebuild as work continued on the expansion.
“We believe good design enriches lives and enhances communities. As a project that truly defines the word ‘collaboration’, this facility embodies good design. Not only does it reflect the sophistication of Booz Allen Hamilton as a company, but it was delivered ahead of schedule, all through the hard work of our team and Frampton Construction’s great leadership,” said Jill Rodgers, project architect with McMillan Pazdan Smith.
Frampton Construction, McMillan Pazdan Smith, and Agracel, Inc., partnered together to bring this renovation and addition to the Lowcountry. Work on the initial expansion began in February 2016 and was slated to be done in December. Frampton Construction completed that by mid-September, three months ahead of schedule. The fire restoration was completed on January 17, 2017.
Kyle Edney, southeast region development director for Agracel, Inc., commented, “We are pleased to add Booz Allen Hamilton to our growing list of clients in the Southeast and to complete another successful project with Frampton Construction. The Frampton team handled the job in a most professional manner and delivered the job on time, as usual!”
