Adams Outdoor



In August of 2019, Frampton Construction completed work on a 19,000-square foot building in Charlotte, N.C., for Adams Outdoor Advertising, the largest privately held outdoor advertising firm in the nation. The project is situated on a highly visible 6+ acre site along I-85.

The building, which houses the company’s flagship Charlotte operation, consists of a 9,044-square foot shop and a 10,098-square foot office. The drive-through shop features a mezzanine, several offices, and restrooms, and is large enough to hold twelve trucks. The office features a conference room, reception area, several sales and meeting rooms, break rooms, and restrooms.

The design team, led by Nicholas Galizia of McMillan Pazdan Smith Architecture, created a “refined industrial” design that celebrates the building’s exposed steel structure and concrete floors.  The form of the building takes its cues from the natural topography of the site, solar orientation, and the mission of the building itself – to advertise.  The vertical fins along the north elevation are designed to provide shade from the setting sun, while the walls that meet at the northeast corner of the building serve as space for graphics.

In addition to McMillan, Pazdan, Smith Architecture, Frampton Construction partnered with Bohler Engineering, PLLC, Britt, Peters, and Associates, Inc., and McVeigh & Mangum Engineering, Inc., on this project. Over the course of eight months, the project team and owner worked closely together from a conceptual level through permitting to produce a buildable design consistent with the original intent while sticking to a strict budget and completion timeline. 

Jeannine Dodson, general manager of Adams Outdoor Advertising, said, “Our new building is a dream come true. After being in the planning and execution stages for more than two years, my staff and I are delighted with the space, the setting, and the efficiencies. Though it’s brand new, we already feel at home here. My thanks to all of the planners, construction workers, and finishers who made this all possible for us.”
