Charleston, S.C. -- Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a regional full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, construction services, and sustainability services, is underway on a 124-room TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Panama City Beach, Fla. The St. Joe Company and InterMountain Management, LLC, are development partners for the project.

The approximately 70,000-square foot, four-story hotel will be located on Panama City Beach Parkway adjacent to Frank Brown Park, a 200-acre outdoor recreation facility. The hotel will also provide convenient access to Pier Park, a premier shopping and entertainment destination.

Dave Raymond, director of construction for InterMountain Management, commented, “We’re proud to team up with Frampton Construction on another TownePlace Suites project. At every level of support, they continue to deliver on each new property as if it’s one of their own hotels.”

TownePlace Suites by Marriott is an extended stay hotel brand offering spacious suites that feature full-size kitchens, in-room workstations, and closets designed by The Container Store®. The hotel will also include amenities such as a fitness center, pool, and business center.

“We’re thrilled to continue our longstanding relationship with the InterMountain Management development team, and we’re excited to build a hotel in this amenity-rich area of Panama City Beach,” said Tom Black, executive vice president for Frampton Construction.

HC Architecture crafted the design for the hotel. Work on the project is expected to be complete in February 2020.

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.
