The core team at Carolina Construction of Charleston has been together for many years and consists of LT plus three more experienced construction experts.


This solid team values honesty, hard work, and transparency. We also work with a number of subcontractors, when a bigger job calls for a larger crew.


Our years in Charleston have helped us to vet the local subcontractors and know who’s work will be of the best quality.  We manage all subcontractors for a handoff experience for our clients.

A Lowcountry Story

Carolina Construction of Charleston is owned and operated by LT Phillips, a longtime Lowcountry resident and Licensed General Contractor.  LT knew he liked construction from a young age and got started with on-the-job training shortly after highschool.  After building his hands-on knowledge for many years, he studied at Trident Technical College, where he completed the Construction Management Certificate in 2016.  Then he returned and earned a degree in Civil Engineering in 2020.  This has allowed him to pair 15 years of experience with knowledge of new techniques and standards in modern construction.
