Charleston, S.C. – Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a regional full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has finished work on a 136,500-square-foot industrial building at the Charleston Trade Center, located in Summerville, S.C. The Keith Corporation, a privately held, full-service developer and owner of industrial, warehouse, and other commercial properties, developed the project.
Situated on 12.9 acres, the building has a 32-foot clearance inside with 18 dock doors and two drive-in doors with ramps for forklifts. The facility, built on a speculative basis and currently in shell condition, has one signed tenant with additional floor plans ranging from 21,000-square- feet to 115,500-square-feet. JLL’s Lee Allen is handling the leasing of the space.
Alan Lewis, industrial development partner for The Keith Corporation, commented, “We’re excited to deliver our second building with Frampton Construction in the Charleston Trade Center and eager to complete our third, the neighboring Curtiss-Wright facility, later this fall.”
The facility’s location right off Interstate 26 in one of the area’s premier Class A industrial campuses offers unrivaled port proximity and a business-friendly environment. The building joins three other industrial facilities on the campus.
Selby Austin, assistant project manager at Frampton Construction, said, “The success of this project can be attributed to a great team – our design and development partners, a dedicated group of subcontractors, and Berkeley County officials. We’re excited for the opportunity it presents for industrial tenants looking to call Summerville home.”
McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture completed the design for the building, while Alliance Engineers and WGPM, Inc., served as civil and structural engineers. Work on the site began in October of 2018 and concluded in July 2019.
