Frampton completes expansion of United Plate Glass facility

May 15, 2024

Frampton has finished work on the expansion of the United Plate Glass facility in Lincolnton, N.C. The addition includes 21,500 square-feet of dedicated manufacturing space, a 2,000 SF blower/electrical room, and 20 new parking spaces.

United Plate Glass is a fabricator and distributor of custom architectural glass products. The expanded space is constructed of concrete tilt wall panels with a 26-foot clear height. Three openings connect the new space with the existing facility. Construction took place while the existing facility remained operational, posing challenging site logistics on a tight schedule.

The construction of a 2,000-square-foot blower/electrical room and 21,500 square feet of open production area made way for a new glass tempering furnace, three industrial blowers, two washing tables, and three cutting tables, with the overall goal of improving production by at least 50%.

Joey Smith, Vice President at Frampton Construction, added, "We're proud of our team for their hard work and determination. Managing the tight site logistics with an active existing facility required exceptional coordination, especially ensuring continuous access for glass deliveries throughout each day."

Merriman-Schmitt Architects served as the architect on the project, WGPM as the structural engineer and Oak Engineering was the civil engineer.
