What we do.

Carolina Construction of Charleston specializes in large scale commercial upfit and renovation.  The team has local experience with sourcing materials, partnering with contractors, and pulling permits.  Our team is skilled in plumbing, electrical, HVAC, dry wall, metal framing, metal work, and concrete.


You might have an older historical building that could become office or retail space through compartmentation.  This might mean you need to increase HVAC, plumbing, or electrical capabilities.


Perhaps you have an old retail space that you would like to investigate turning into apartments.  These property transitions may mean moving walls, creating lounge areas, adding plumbing, or altering HVAC specifications.


The space might need security doors and gates put in place.  Or you might need soundproofing and insulation improvements made. Give us a call and LT will walk your space and help you make the most out of your property!

Frequently Asked Question

How much is this going to cost?

Factors involved include materials, the current state of the space, and fire code concerns. The initial meeting and quote are free. 

What size are your projects?

Carolina construction handles projects of all shapes and sizes. We recently completed a facility of 150,000 Sq ft. There’s no job to small or to big.

Can you make updates to a sports complex?

Yes.  Such a job would likely involve concrete and metal framing work.  Those are some of our specialties.  We are happy to visit and help.

Can you work in a partially occupied space?

We can work in a partially occupied space! Modern climate and dust control plus health and safety improvements mean that we can work closer to your workforce than ever before! If you need to keep the space active, invite us down for an assessment and we will let you know if your space is a candidate. You can renovate without a lengthy shutdown and loss of business!
