Charleston, S.C. — Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has finished work on a 63-door service center for Old Dominion Freight Line (ODFL) in Columbia, South Carolina. Built to a new design standard, the Columbia service center serves as a prototype for all future ODFL service center builds.
Situated on 20 acres, the new facility includes 28,000-square feet of dock space to accommodate up to 63 trucks and a 5,681-square foot office. The building envelope was formed by concrete panels using the tilt-up construction method.
The office portion of the service center features a driver check-in area, conference/training room, and staff office area. Some of the updated design elements include polished concrete floors, an open ceiling concept, and added depth to the front façade of the building.
Keaton Green, vice president of Frampton Construction, commented, “Our goal with this project was to deliver our client’s new vision and set a high bar for the construction of all future ODFL service centers. Our team was up to the challenge, and they produced an outcome we’re all proud of.”
Hoyt + Berenyi provided civil engineering services for the project, while David Mollenkopf Architect provided architectural design. Construction finished in December 2021, and the facility is now fully operational.
