Charleston Office

Charleston. Chucktown. The Holy City.

A historic city of many names, but we call it home.

Over two decades of serving clients in this picturesque city, and we’re hooked like the Red Drum swimming its shores. The relationships we have formed run deep, spanning from the Lowcountry to the Midlands, the PeeDee to the Upstate. They’re as thick as pluff mud and built on the assertion that promises made are promises kept. Our iconic black and gold signage has proudly stood next to 23,000,000+ SF of projects across this great state, an indelible reminder of our commitment to deliver no less than the gold standard in construction.

From globally award-winning industrial facilities to five-star resorts, healthcare facilities to corporate offices, we are “SC Proud” – proud to live here, proud to serve here, and proud to build here.






Purposeful Growth

What’s the latest great part of being in this wonderful city? Moving to some impressive new digs!

Our recent relocation to the Gateway office in Mount Pleasant affords our team ample space and opportunity to serve our clients, trade partners, and our community. We’re only ten minutes away from our previous home, but with large conference spaces and open collaboration areas to cutting-edge AV and technology infrastructure, we’re able to work more efficiently and effectively to provide value to our clients throughout the state.

Catalysts for
Positive Change

What makes Choate Charleston different? We believe in going beyond the project – paying it forward and giving back to our local community through our time and our talents.

From rebuilding a Bald Eagle flight enclosure for The Center for Birds of Prey to preparing American Red Cross disaster relief packages, we’re going above corporate responsibility and encouraging maximum individual impact. Through coordinated group events, individual non-profit involvement, and a 501(c)3 donation matching program, we’re paying it forward to the communities that have given us so much. The community we call home.

Work Hard, Play Hard

We’re passionate about our work, but all work and no play is simply not the Charleston way.

Our FUN Committee keeps things lively with monthly events designed to promote internal camaraderie between office staff and onsite teams. Oyster roasts, office olympics, harbor sailing cruises, chili cookoffs, and parking lot barbeques – all good times with great people. Come meet the members of our team, but don’t be afraid partake in some friendly competition with a round of ping-pong while you’re here!

Join our Employee Ownership Team!

We’re constantly in “go” mode. Joining a company with this kind of momentum and culture provides no shortage of opportunity.
