It is our unparalleled service and value—along with our ability to deliver exceptional, consistent results—that keeps our clients coming back.

The Caldwell difference is made possible by our talented, qualified team and network of trusted construction partners. We are selective in choosing our subcontractors and only work with those who share our commitment and approach to meeting clients’ needs. We treat each project like we are the owners and keep that in mind throughout the process.

“Caldwell Constructors is an absolutely wonderful company! They worked with us on a large reconstruction project that we held with great passion. They communicated professionally and frequently keeping us up to date on every aspect of our project. I highly recommend Caldwell Constructors! They are great Christian people who know their profession very well!”

Community Service

We’re passionate about giving back to our community. That’s why when we learned about a family whose home was extensively damaged by a fire that was not covered by insurance, we jumped in to help. Our team pulled together resources from contributing subcontractors and suppliers to help rebuild the house “Habitat style”.

We were privileged to be able to spend two weeks removing the damaged structure. Once the demo was completed, the entire Caldwell team had an “all hands on deck” work weekend. We installed all of the donated roof trusses and got the house “dried-in” by the end of the weekend. The homeowner and family enjoyed helping out too!

Case Studies

Kevin Whitaker

Caldwell Constructors was able to build a new Cadillac showroom at Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet Cadillac on Laurens Rd in Greenville. The architectural drawings showed the new building sitting on the location of an active detention basin. However, Caldwell had the idea to build the showroom on an elevated concrete slab to enclose the pond inside a basement structure instead of filling in the pond and moving the detention basin to an underground system below the parking lot used for sales.

This idea lead to a design-build approach where Caldwell Constructors selected a structural and civil design team to help finalize the design of the structure. This creative solution allowed Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet to save over $100,000 in construction cost and also allowed the dealership to retain the 100+ car inventory that would have been displaced by an underground system.

BMW Assembly Line Conversion

Caldwell Constructors was brought in to help build 3,000 linear feet of wide conveying system trenches and related equipment foundations required for the assembly line conversion in the active manufacturing facility. Caldwell served as the concrete contractor in a joint venture with Foundations Unlimited and was instrumental in the successful completion of the project. Caldwell’s leadership with scheduling the 24 hours a day/7 days a week work week lead to an early completion of a project scheduled during the holidays.

Tower Place

Caldwell was selected as the design-builder to make significant structural repairs to a partially completed 5-story mixed-use building in downtown Clemson. The previous contractor over-billed the owner by more than $100,000 and did not even come close to completing the building. Even worse, the structure was not built to code and was not safe for occupancy.

Caldwell Constructors hired a structural engineer to help with a solution to the inadequate structure. A 5-story exterior concrete and masonry shear wall was added to stabilize the structure, and steel plates and angles were installed and welded together throughout portions of the building to create a stronger floor system. The result was a structurally sound building that was extremely safe for occupancy.
