Omni Oceanfront Resort



For this project, Frampton Construction contracted with valued client Atlantic Resort Managers, Inc., a leading manager for one of the nation’s largest luxury resorts, to fully restore the common areas, ballroom, meeting rooms, restaurant, spa and offices at the Omni Oceanfront Resort in Hilton Head, S.C., which were damaged by Hurricane Matthew. The restoration effort was done in an aggressive two month timeline, meeting all expectations and allowing the resort to reopen in record time.

Restoration efforts included new drywall, paint and carpet for the resort’s River Meeting Rooms; new detailed soffit/tray ceilings, drywall, carpet, and paint for the Sabal Ballroom; new lighting fixtures, HVAC, drywall, and paint for the HH Prime Restaurant; a complete sauna re-build and new millwork, drywall and paint for the Ocean Spa, and a complete overhaul of the resort’s administrative offices for daily operations.


From day one of mobilization, an intense schedule created multiple challenges to the restoration efforts. Hurricane Matthew made landfall in the Hilton Head community on October 8, 2016, and had an immediate impact on the functionality of the resort. In the days following, the Town of Hilton Head performed after-storm assessments and deemed the property unable to operate until restoration efforts were completed and the property was certified for occupancy. The Omni Oceanfront Resort set a goal of re-opening for rooms and most common areas on January 1, 2017, and that goal was met.

What began as a four-month project was completed in two months to meet the Omni Oceanfront Resort’s goal of opening by the first of the year. To keep the project on such a tight schedule, Frampton Construction self-performed all finish carpentry, along with added manpower for demolition, framing, drywall, painting, scaffolding, HVAC, floor coverings and electrical work, working around the clock to complete this project in such a short amount of time. With intense coordination efforts between the Frampton Construction team, the subcontractors, the Omni Oceanfront Resort team, and the insurance adjusters, the Omni Oceanfront Resort was able to receive its first guests of 2017 on the first day of the New Year.

Located in the Palmetto Dunes Community, the Omni Oceanfront Resort in Hilton Head offers numerous amenities, including championship golf, tennis, and beachfront activities. The restoration efforts by Frampton Construction allowed the resort to resume operations swiftly after Hurricane Matthew to provide guests with the ultimate experience. Omni Resorts, a leading national/international hospitality company established in multiple U.S. states and Mexico, strives to present a distinctive collection of luxury resorts for all of their clients.

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.
