Savannah Office

Uniquely Savannah

Inspired by the past with a vision for the future, Choate is proud to call Savannah "home” since 2000. Our humble roots are firmly planted within this most enchanting city, and our talented, local team has grown from an office of only a few into the Coastal Empire’s largest and most dependable builder.

By coupling the resources of a larger firm with the knowledge and relationships only a local presence provides, Choate Savannah offers a unique value to our clients. A value built on the principles of honesty, stewardship, and relationships. We are uniquely Savannah.

These resources also enable Choate to provide the highest level of safety training, ensuring standout safety practices on every jobsite. Because of this and the dedication of our project teams and safety managers to safety, Choate was recently named the Nation's Safest Construction Company by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).






Eyes on the Past,
Present, and Future

A dynamic mix of diverse industry expansion has been the catalyst for significant growth and increased interest in one of the nation’s largest port areas. This development, coupled with commitment and enthusiasm to preserving our precious natural and cultural treasures, remains a forefront priority across Savannah and the Lowcountry. With diversity across all market sectors, our project teams are able to become experts in their field, enabling us to better serve our clients.

It’s What’s on the
Inside that Counts

In 2017, Choate Savannah added an Interiors Division to our roster. The benefit? A separate, autonomous construction group with a team dedicated solely to interior construction, adaptive reuse, and historical renovation.

Give us the difficult projects!

We are proud of our service to some of Savannah’s most cherished monuments, including: The Jepson Museum, Lady & Sons, Moon River Brewing Company, The Armstrong-Kessler Mansion, and Historic Savannah Foundation winners: Oatland Island Wildlife Center and One West Victory.

Proud to Live Here,
Proud to Serve Here

Honoring our roots as the “Hostess City of the South,” we are deeply invested in the growth and development of the Savannah community.

Whether volunteering to pack boxes at Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia, donating classroom supplies to Savannah Speech and Hearing, or providing free training to local workers on Silica Safety, we love to serve our city.

Building Excitement for Construction in Future Generations

Our Savannah team enjoys every opportunity to get out and meet the next generation of builders and design professionals.

Partnering with SCAD professors, our jobsites have played host to design classes in various stages of their education, giving students a first-hand look at active construction. Georgia Southern University’s Construction Management program has also given us the opportunity to interact on a daily basis with their student body. Our Savannah Division has opened the doors to both summer and semester-long internships for current students at GSU. This has resulted in numerous full-time hires over the years that have benefitted Choate in nearly each department.

Work Smart. Play Hard.

Living on the coast, it’s hard not to get caught up in the salt life.

Partnering with the Savannah Area Chamber for their Spring Business Connection Oyster Roast provides unique networking opportunities for the entire community, while our annual subcontractor and supplier appreciation oyster roast allows us to personally thank the many men and women who keep our jobsites running smoothly.
