As a modern-day master builder, Bobbitt Design Build is more than just a commercial general contractor. We’re the single entity that is contractually responsible for delivering on all aspects of your project’s architectural design, engineering and construction. Rather than working with separate entities, the building owner gets our unified design-construct team working together on his or her behalf.
Bobbitt Design Build was founded in 1946 by G.E. Bobbitt and today has dual headquarters in Raleigh, NC, and Columbia, SC. As the Carolinas’ largest and most experienced general contractor and architect specializing in commercial and industrial design-build, our company has delivered nearly 4,000 commercial buildings throughout the Southeast.
Having celebrated our 70th anniversary in 2016, Bobbitt Design Build has earned a reputation of excellence dating back to the post-War building boom of the 1940s. G.E. Bobbitt started the Raleigh-based construction company in 1946, and Bobbitt became one of the initial franchise distributors for Butler Manufacturing Company.
In the 1980s, the Bobbitt organization created an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) for employees to share in the company’s success. Bobbitt became 100 percent employee-owned in 2000. Around the same time, the company expanded by adding a South Carolina division, which continues to be a source for major growth.
Today Bobbitt continues as an industry leader, using the latest design and construction technologies to provide the highest-quality buildings at maximum value, and we remain among the country’s premiere Butler Builders.
