The Blake at Woodcreek Farms



The Blake at Woodcreek Farms is an 88,000 square foot, 100 unit assisted living facility in Elgin, S.C., just 20 miles northeast of Columbia, S.C. The Blake is a front-gate anchor for the master planned community of Woodcreek Farms. Construction began in October 2015 and was completed in December 2016.

The Blake at Woodcreek Farms was the first of two sister facilities under construction by Frampton Construction in South Carolina. The other was The Blake at Carnes Crossroads, in Summerville. Frampton Construction worked closely with Cardinal Ventures, the design team, and the subcontractors and vendors in a collaborative approach to deliver the best overall value.

The 42,000 square foot building footprint sits on a 3.5 acre site within 2,300 acre community known as Woodcreek Farms. The site features green open spaces and spring-fed lakes where residents can enjoy the best of both quiet country living and easy access to the city. The finished project contains 78 parking spaces. Onsite LED pole lights provide energy efficient solutions to light up the site at night, while energy efficient LED lighting throughout the facility will ultimately reduce energy consumption, as one example of a sustainable approach to the facility.

Upon completion of The Blake project, vice president of Cardinal Ventures, Edgar McKee, wrote, “Just as advertised, Frampton Construction’s management teams are extremely focused.  Their protocols underscore effective communication and accurate reporting as they work to accommodate special requests of the client too.”  He plans to continue working with Frampton Construction on more projects in the future. 

The building contains 17 rooftop units to condition the common areas, and each of the 100 units has its dedicated mini-split unit concealed above the ceiling for aesthetic appeal.  The wood framed structure with engineered trusses provides the shape of the building, while the brick veneer embellishes the building envelope.

The Blake is a collection of six communities in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and now South Carolina.  Frampton Construction has joined with Cardinal Ventures, the development company, to bring this spacious, elegant facility to the state.

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.
