Elms Medical Office Building



Frampton Construction Company, LLC, completed a two story medical office building for The Elms in North Charleston, S.C. in March of 2014. The project began when Coastal Vascular and Vein Center saw the need for a new practice in North Charleston and reached out to Chad Frampton. Chad then connected with Summit Healthcare, a development client in North Carolina interested in developing a medical office building in the Charleston area. Working closely with Derek Robbins, director of preconstruction, the Frampton team located an available site, spoke with committed tenants, and performed a diligent site analysis for the proposed structure and extensive space planning with the tenants.

This combination of a developer with an opportunity and a tenant in need led by Frampton gave rise to a new medical office building featuring an array of contemporary building elements and materials for both the exterior and interior arrivals.

“This building is a showcase for Summit Healthcare, both in terms of the process, and in terms of the end result. It is concrete evidence that personal relationships make for good business,” stated Tommy Catone of Summit Healthcare. “We look forward to the chance to partner with the Frampton team again in the future.” 

After completion of the core and shell of the building, Frampton Construction began the medical up-fit on the second floor for Coastal Vascular and Vein Center, the second vascular surgical facility for the Frampton team. The space contains a major procedure room, two minor procedure rooms, a clean room, four prep/recovery rooms, and six exam rooms. Remaining office space consists of restrooms, nurse stations, a reception/waiting area, and physician, nurse, and manager offices.

“The North Charleston practice has been a great expansion for us. We are thankful to Chad Frampton for introducing us to this great opportunity,” said Dr. Edward C. Morrison, M.D.

What Customers are saying

Frampton was originally interviewed for our Corporate Office in Columbia and although not selected, the Frampton team not only impressed me but also the owners of the company so much so that we decided after that interview that Frampton should be included on our very short list of contractors to handle our projects throughout our service area in the Sunbelt.  Like all of our contractors we started out with a couple small renovations projects and progressed to much larger turnkey/design build service centers. Frampton has been a pleasure to work with. Their attention to detail and continuous improvement for quality and cost control to the owner is very much appreciated. The Southeastern team looks forward to many more successful projects with the Frampton team.
