Frampton Construction underway on Greenville’s Upstate Trade Center
Charleston, S.C. — Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, and construction services, has started work on a new, 907,444-square-foot speculative industrial development in Greenville, South Carolina. The project, comprised of two Class-A industrial facilities, is being developed by The Keith Corporation, a full-service developer and owner of industrial, warehouse, and other commercial properties.
Building one will measure 640,667-square-feet with a cross-dock layout and a 36-foot clear height. Building two will measure 266,777-square-feet with a rear-loading layout and a 32-foot clear height. Constructed of concrete tilt walls and structural steel framing, the facilities will be equipped with ESFR (Early Suppression Fast Response) sprinklers, energy-efficient LED lighting, and 60mil TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) membrane roofs.
Alan Lewis, industrial development partner for The Keith Corporation, commented, “Upstate Trade Center represents the first industrial venture in the Greenville-Spartanburg market for The Keith Corporation, and we’re excited to partner with Frampton Construction on this speculative project.”
The project’s location, adjacent to US-25 and the Donaldson Center Airport (GYH), is within four miles of I-85 and presents direct access to critical Southeastern metropolitan areas such as Greenville, Spartanburg, Charlotte, and Atlanta.
Keaton Green, vice president at Frampton Construction, added, “Our team is thrilled to be starting construction on this pair of facilities in the heart of the Upstate. We’ve established a strong track-record of delivering a quality industrial product with The Keith Corporation, and we’re proud to bring that expertise to the Greenville-Spartanburg market.”
