The Omni Grove Park Inn - Seely Pavilion and Event Lawn



Omni Hotels and Resorts selected Frampton Construction to deliver the 10,000 square foot Seely Pavilion and Event Lawn at The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C. 

The Seely Pavilion and Event Lawn sits at the southern base of the historic Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C., a premiere vacation resort built in 1913 that is located along the Blue Ridge Mountains. The newly constructed pavilion and event lawn provides this high-profile resort with a prime venue for for business and social events. The facility features a heavy Douglas fir timber structure with indigenous dry-stack stone columns and full-height glass curtainwalls, boasting panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and overlooking the Donald Ross designed golf course.

For this project, Frampton Construction partnered with Omni Hotels and Resorts, Atlanta, and Beck Architecture, from Austin, TX. 

A challenging aspect of this project wass relocating an existing 12” waterline that crossed the site of the pavilion building pad. The waterline relocation required close coordination with other parties to minimize impact to the public. Gary Froeba, area managing director at Omni Hotels and Resorts, commented, “Throughout the construction of our Seely Pavilion, Frampton communicated with us with clarity and frequency. We received weekly updates with imagery and estimated completion dates of each level of the project and the team worked diligently to stay on time and within budget. Frampton was also open and receptive to changes when challenges arose during the project and worked safely and efficiently to complete the Seely Pavilion to our satisfaction.”

The project was completed in November 2017.
