In 1947, three men established a privately-held, employee-owned construction firm in Greenville, SC with a focus on character and principle. Together, John D. Pellett, Jr., C. Heyward Morgan, and Nelson Tracy, had a vision for what they could build — their team, their partnerships, and their community.
Although the firm initially focused solely on public sector work, the latter half of the 20th Century brought opportunities to expand into institutional work, including significant projects for the community’s healthcare, higher education, and religious organizations.
From the 1980s on, our team has handled a wide range of work, from $100,000 tenant upfits to $60,000,000 multi-phase projects. We’ve done stick-framed apartments, conventional steel and masonry construction, and even cast-in-place multi-level office buildings.
Today, our opportunities in the 21st century are bright, and our legacy stands as the foundation on which we build our future – one project at a time – honoring our founders’ three-sided vision of commitment, integrity, and loyalty.
