Choate Construction Company was established in 1989 which was a basement start-up. It began during a recession when construction projects were sparse and the employee roster small. Choate excels in both base and interior construction with office locations in Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Nashville, Raleigh, and Savannah.

Choate is one of the companies leading the industry in financially viable and functional construction solutions. Based on investing in tools to promote advances in safety, virtual construction, sustainable construction, preconstruction, and risk mitigation, Choate is still at the forefront of industry standards.

Nowadays, Choate Construction employs more than 450 full-time professionals and is 100% employee-owned. But like in the past, Choate maintains a flat management style and the opportunity for professional growth from day one.

Choate considers their reputation as the number one asset. That’s why it is one of the largest general contractors in the Southeast. Their current success has been founded upon the strength of their client relationships and our employees.
