Beverly-Grant is dedicated to providing and maintaining a safe and secure worksite. Throughout our company history, we have consistently outperformed the industry standards and maintained excellent OSHA inspections. We view safety as a line responsibility to which all employees are held accountable. While our job superintendent is responsible for enforcing best practices on the site, our project managers also routinely inspect. We provide weekly “tool box talk” sessions for our subcontractors and demand a clean and orderly jobsite. Many of our employees have their OSHA 10 and 30 hour certificates and several staff members have achieved OSHA Trainer/MESH certifications.


Beverly-Grant is currently licensed in four states: North Carolina (#18030), South Carolina (#G11603), Tennessee (#20372), and Florida (#CGC1523670).

They managed the complex construction phases involving historic preservation, total renovation of an existing structure, demolition, and new construction. The construction management team and site supervisors were ever-present and vigilant in working with the museum team and in monitoring each aspect of the undertaking. The project was completed on budget."

"We are pleased that we chose Beverly-Grant to build this warehouse. They are very professional and pay attention to details. The best way to judge their work is to see our warehouse."

"Our new campus for South College on Sweeten Creek Road in Asheville was the fifth project Beverly-Grant has completed for us as General Contractor. The 42,000 sf “Class A” office facility was completed on schedule in fall 2011. Beverly-Grant’s team worked under challenging schedule requirements, and was instrumental in delivering our facility on time and within budget. Our company continues to chose Beverly-Grant for their experienced professionals, commitment to excellence, and their integrity."
Brad Freeman, Sullivan & Chase, Inc.

"When it came time for us to plan an office expansion, we used our original construction company for the design work and then went out to bid to find a local contractor to manage the project. We ended up choosing Beverly-Grant primarily due to the reputation I learned about when checking with local references and for the professional and competent way they handled things during the bidding process. This proved to be the right decision. They worked very closely with our team to clarify and modify architectural drawings and did a great job of managing the schedule to keep things on track. Throughout this process and afterwards, they demonstrated a real commitment to our satisfaction. We really got the feeling that they would not stop working until we were completely satisfied with the finished product. On our next project, we will forgo the bidding process and use Beverly-Grant from the beginning."
Jeff Mooney, Altec Industries

"It is hard to believe that we have been in our new space for five years already. Beverly-Grant was with us every step of the way and is very much a part of why CFWNC's home is so beautiful."
Elizabeth Brazas, Community Foundation of Western North Carolina
