Frampton Construction underway on T-Mobile Call Center


Frampton Construction Company, LLC, a regional full-service construction firm providing planning and design support, preconstruction, construction services, and sustainability services throughout the Carolinas, has been selected to transform an existing K-Mart facility in North Charleston into a modernized T-Mobile Call Center.

The project includes both an exterior shell conversion and interior tenant upfit for which McMillan Pazdan Smith and JPC Architecture will be the respective architects. T-Mobile’s call center will account for 127,000 square feet of the 170,000 square-foot building, with 41,000 square feet of leasable space remaining.

George Dewey, IV, president and CEO of Aston Properties, remarked, “The opportunity to bring T-Mobile’s largest customer care center in the U.S. to North Charleston and to partner with such a well-qualified, local contractor to assist us in doing the work, is a win-win for the community.”

The T-Mobile Call Center, which will house 1,200 employees, will feature a fitness center, a theater room, several boardrooms, a kitchen, and an outdoor patio and basketball court. Frampton Construction will also mill and pave the entire parking lot, update the landscape, and add new sidewalks around the building. Other exterior renovations include cutting 50 new windows into the existing concrete wall, constructing two new storefront entrances, and adding a new membrane roof.

“We are excited to hit the ground running on this project and look forward to working together with Aston Properties and the project architects to transform this facility into a state-of-the-art call center for T-Mobile,” said Chad Frampton, CEO of Frampton Construction

Construction on this project began in May of 2017 and is expected to be complete by December this year.
