Frampton Construction starts work on second Portside Distribution Center facility
Charleston, S.C. — Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, is underway on the construction of a 204,004-square-foot industrial building in Summerville, South Carolina. The Class-A speculative facility, developed by Randolph Development, is the second of two heavy industrial buildings that comprise the Portside Distribution Center.
Strategically located beside I-26 in the Charleston Distribution Corridor, the new building is suitable for a variety of end-users, including logistics companies, aerospace and automotive suppliers, defense contractors, light manufacturers, and last-mile distributors.
With a clear height of 32 feet, the rear-load facility will be constructed of concrete tilt-up panels. Upon completion, the building will feature 33 dock doors and four drive-in doors, with 143 parking spaces and 52 trailer storage spaces. Colliers International is handling the leasing of the property.
Keaton Green, vice president of Frampton Construction, commented, “Our team is excited to be back building a second facility at Portside Distribution Center. This pair of facilities offers the flexibility and connectivity that industrial end-users are looking for today, and we’re happy to play a role in filling that need.”
