Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency



Frampton Construction recently completed a 23,000 square foot single story renovation for Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency (CARE) located in Charlotte, N.C. in August 2015. During the initial phases, RED Partners, a local full service commercial development firm, and Frampton Construction teamed up to provide a proposed analysis of new and renovation construction, including associated cost and schedule impacts.  After careful review, the owners elected to renovate an existing structure in the uptown Charlotte area.      

Due to owner stipulations and non-disclosed information, the project was given a code name to be used until owners took occupancy of the building in June of 2015.  Frampton Construction worked directly with the owners to provide preconstruction and onsite project management for a turn-key package and design-build approach.  The design team included McMillian Pazdan Smith, Epic Engineering, and MDV Civil Engineering.  The construction scope included a Phase One 15,000 square foot full interior renovation and exterior modifications. Phase Two consisted of bringing the space to code and provided an area for future expansion.  The only item not demolished during construction was the building structure. All interior components, including plumbing, fire protection, and mechanical and electrical systems, were removed, re-designed, and installed.  Although the schedule was tight, Frampton Construction, along with the help of the owners, subcontractors, and vendors, achieved project substantial completion in five months. 

The completed facility comes equipment with state of the art MRI, CT, and X-ray equipment.  In addition, the owner elected to install epoxy flooring throughout the building to provide a clean and sterile environment. Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency has a fully functional pharmacy and ICU area with five operating rooms and associated medical gas including nitrogen, oxygen, and waste gas.

Since opening, Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency, or CARE, has been marketed as the premier veterinarian clinic in the area specializing in pet surgical care, including internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, surgery, and oncology.
