Frampton Construction Co. has completed a major restoration of a Hilton Head, S.C., resort that was hard-hit by Hurricane Matthew in October.
Frampton, which has a Charlotte office at 711 Central Ave., provided planning and design support, preconstruction work, construction work and sustainability services to the Omni Oceanfront Resort, which was closed by the storm.
Tom Black, executive vice president of Frampton Construction, says the project had a four-month deadline that was beat by two months.
“From day one of mobilization an intense schedule created multiple challenges, so we added resources and worked around the clock when necessary to complete this in a very short amount of time,” Black says.
The resort reopened Jan. 1, two months ahead of the planned deadline.
The work included a complete rebuild of the sauna plus millwork there; drywall paint and carpet in the resort’s river meeting rooms; new ceilings, drywall, carpet and paint for the Sabal Ballroom, and an overhaul of the administrative offices.
Ladson, S.C.-based Frampton also added new light fixtures, HVAC, drywall and other work for the HH Prime Restaurant at the Omni Oceanfront.
The 323-room resort, the island’s largest, had undergone a $17 million renovation in 2013 when Matthew hit in October.
