The Blake at Carnes Crossroads



The Blake at Carnes Crossroads is an 84,000-square foot, 100 unit assisted living facility in Summerville, S.C., just 20 miles northwest of Charleston, S.C. The Blake is a premier anchor for the new Carnes Crossroads master planned community. Construction began on March 31, 2016, and was completed in July of   2017. This is the third Blake project for Frampton Construction. Its sister facilities are The Blake at Woodcreek Farms in Elgin, S.C., and The Blake at Edgewater in Indian Land, S.C.

The 42,000-square foot building footprint sits on a 3.7-acre site within the Carnes Crossroads community developed by Daniel Island Company, which also offers top medical offices, shops, restaurants, a school, parks and a church. 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 ultimately reduces energy consumption, as one example of a sustainable approach to the facility.  The 3000-amp electrical service has a backup generator capable of providing power to life-safety systems and key emergency lighting.  

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. 

To bring this facility to the state, Frampton Construction once again joined with Cardinal Ventures, a senior living developer based in Ridgeland, Mississippi.
