Company History

Frampton Construction, based in Charleston, S.C., is a regional full-service construction firm with financial strength and industry knowledge born of years of experience employing proven procedures.  In 1977, the company started as Limehouse and Frampton, and in 1993, Charles T. Frampton founded Frampton & Associates. In 2015, under the leadership of Chad Frampton, the company became Frampton Construction, offering planning and design support, preconstruction, construction, and sustainability services.

Though a mid-sized firm, Frampton adopts large firm processes with a small company mindset and a personable approach. They are focused on delivering quality service with hands-on involvement at every step of the conception, design, and building process.

The management team at Frampton Construction includes Chad Frampton, president, Tom Black, executive vice president and Keaton Green, director. Together, they provide executive leadership and personal oversight throughout the building process. Their collective goal is to deliver incomparable results on each and every project. The entire Frampton team works diligently to exceed expectations with a goal of building and growing formidable, lasting relationships with clients. 

Frampton Construction has had a local presence in the construction industry for decades, and the company’s experience is reflected in a myriad of projects completed across the United States. Over the years, Frampton has increasingly contracted outside of the Carolinas, becoming better known as a regional firm with a national footprint for its repeat clients. To handle client needs, Frampton opened an office in Charlotte, N.C., in 2013, and continues to grow and add new talent.  Although the company has progressively changed to adapt to the dynamic construction industry, the mission remains the same – to consistently provide high-quality construction services on every assignment.

Since its founding, the philosophy has always been that relationships are the pinnacle of good business. The core values that define Frampton Construction and serve as a model for the company and its valued team members to live by are client focus, veracity, quality, and community. These tenets represent who Frampton Construction is and ensure that they always remember they’re building quality relationships that go far beyond quality structures.

Over the decades, Frampton Construction has become known as a well-respected, trusted construction company with an experienced team educated and trained in proven construction procedures. The company brings added value to its clients by meeting and even exceeding schedule, budget parameters, and overall job expectations.

With offices in Charleston, S.C., and Charlotte, N.C., the company is positioned to manage projects throughout the Carolinas and beyond.
