Charleston, S.C. — Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has mobilized to begin construction of Tradepark East industrial campus in North Charleston, S.C. Tradepark East is a planned 850,000-square-foot, Class A industrial park being developed by Trinity Capital Advisors.
Initial construction involves 66 acres of sitework as well as construction of the park’s first building, a 342,160-square-foot speculative facility. Constructed of concrete tilt walls and a structural steel frame, the cross-docked facility will have a 36-foot clear height, with 66 dock doors and four drive-in doors. The site will contain 98 trailer parking spaces and 232 employee parking spaces. Planning is underway for the construction of three additional buildings on the campus ranging from 145,600 to 174,720-square-feet.
Massie Flippin, partner at Trinity Capital, commented, “We value our partnership with Frampton. Their quality workmanship and talented staff have been integral to our success, and we look forward to working together on this exciting project.”
Situated on Weber Boulevard in North Charleston’s rapidly growing Palmetto Commerce Park, Tradepark East provides convenient port and interstate access. Palmetto Commerce Park is home to notable companies including Boeing, Mercedez-Benz Vans, and FedEx, among others.
