New leadership team in place to take company forward to a new era
Charleston, S.C. – The company that started as Limehouse & Frampton in 1977 and became Frampton & Associates in 1993, will now become Frampton Construction to mark a new generation and new chapter in its history. According to the company, the name better reflects their passion and vision for the future as they expand offerings to more industries across the region. With offices here and in Charlotte, they provide planning and design support, preconstruction, construction services and sustainability services throughout the Carolinas.
The new management team will be led by Chad Frampton, the son of founder, Charles Frampton. As president and CEO, Frampton leads the firm in overall planning and company direction. Starting in 2007, he served on the management team for the former Frampton & Associates. Prior to that, Frampton was project manager.

Frampton takes great honor in the opportunity to lead Frampton Construction as a second generation construction firm. He earned a degree in business administration from Newberry College, in Newberry, South Carolina. Frampton resides in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

Black holds a B.S. degree from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. A native of Nashville, Tenn., Black resides on James Island.
Keaton J. Green, who serves as director, first started with the company in 2002. He left to pursue a college degree and to further his construction training.

Green is responsible for growth of the Charlotte operations, as well as for the company’s project management systems, innovation and team development.
