Who We Are

A Better Way of Building

As a full-service general contractor, Caldwell Constructors applies our personal values to our professional promise: a better way of building. With decades of experience under our belts and a team committed to exceptional service and outcomes, we believe a better way of building comes down to quality, purposeful projects that shape and support our community, strong relationships built on respect and trust, and a professional process that ensures both.


Built on Relationships from the Very Beginning

In 2005, Gary Caldwell founded Caldwell Constructors, Inc. After 29 years of extensive experience in the construction industry, spanning commercial, institutional, ecumenical, and industrial markets, along with his expertise in managing estimates and operations, Gary trusted he had the foundation to begin a new company within the vibrant community of Greenville, South Carolina.

In those early days, the firm relied heavily on relationships and gained a substantial client base through strong recommendations from key community members. The company strategy focused on gradual and intentional growth, emphasizing the selection of projects that could be managed effectively. The results? Consistent, exceptional outcomes for clients. Then as now, the support of subcontractors, vendors, and above all our employees, has been pivotal to our success. We are tremendously grateful for their commitment to Caldwell Constructors’ mission of providing exceptional service and value to our clients.


How We Deliver Projects Makes
All the Difference

At Caldwell Constructors, getting the job done is only the first step. While we’re committed to delivering as promised – on time and on budget – our detailed planning process and clear differentiators are what set us apart from the competition.
