Our Mission
Phillip W. Smith General Contractor, Inc. strives to provide our homeowners with a positive experience through our
support, understanding and knowledge of building a quality home. Working as a team, it is our job to exhibit integrity
and fairness to all parties involved in the process.

Phillip Smith started his construction business in Charleston, South Carolina in 1990 with his wife, Cathy. A licensed General Contractor, Phillip has built homes throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina, multiple locations in the Southeast and most recently expanded internationally with projects in Christophe Harbour, St. Kitts. Focusing on quality custom homes and remodeling projects, Phillip has earned a highly respected reputation during his years of building in the Charleston area.

Phillip W. Smith General Contractor, Inc. handles on average six projects per year, allowing Phillip to be directly involved from the start and provide personal service to all of our homeowners. With direct involvement, Phillip is able to lend his knowledge and experience early in the design phase to build a home that will hopefully exceed expectations. Currently, Phillip W. Smith GC, Inc. consists of a six person team, which includes one project manager, one superintendent, an estimator and an office manager; all of whom are committed to providing an enjoyable experience to all of our homeowners.
