Doug James, President and Owner
Oversees the company while specializing in the construction process from soliciting bids and selecting subcontractors to supervising all on-site work, with an eye towards creating, in three dimensions, the vision of both client and architect. The key elements in that process include: an open line of communication between all parties - client, architect, builder, suppliers and sub-contractors; the knowledge that the building process is constantly evolving and builders must keep current through continuing education and research; and a near constant review of processes and projects looking for ways to make improvements in quality, efficiency, sustainability and livability. Doug has been a licensed builder in South Carolina for more than 20 years, is an active member of the Charleston Home Builders Association (which named him Builder of the Year in 2012 and President in 2015) and has served on the Charleston County Construction Board of Adjustment & Appeals since 2001. He enjoys sharing his building and carpentry skills with Habitat for Humanity, Homeworks, and the Boy Scouts of America.
