Safety

Beverly-Grant is dedicated to providing and maintaining a safe and secure worksite. Throughout our company history, we have consistently outperformed the industry standards and maintained excellent OSHA inspections. We view safety as a line responsibility to which all employees are held accountable. While our job superintendent is responsible for enforcing best practices on the site, our project managers also routinely inspect. We provide weekly “tool box talk” sessions for our subcontractors and demand a clean and orderly jobsite. Many of our employees have their OSHA 10 and 30 hour certificates and several staff members have achieved OSHA Trainer/MESH certifications.

"Beverly-Grant did an amazing job with the construction of my dental office. Allen Peele was my Project Manager; he was extremely professional and helpful in making the process easy and smooth. Unbelievably, they finished my office not on time, but early! Thanks, Beverly-Grant and Allen Peele, for building me the office of my dreams."
Dr. Jenny Jackson, Asheville Pediatric Dentistry


"The recent renovation of an existing manufacturing facility along with the additions of both an office and a warehouse structure for Linter North America (Balcrank) has been successfully accomplished through the experience and dedication of the Beverly-Grant team. Allen Peele, Dan Taylor and the rest of the Beverly-Grant team have provided Balcrank with excellent service and product by ensuring that we received quality workmanship while meeting a tight schedule and while working through some challenges. Communication not only with Balcrank, but with the sub-contractors, architect and other professionals has been outstanding and is one of the key reasons that this project has been successful. Beverly-Grant committed to providing a quality product and that is what they have delivered. Balcrank will definitely look to Beverly-Grant for any future projects."

"On behalf of the membership and staff at Biltmore Forest Country Club, a sincere thank you for the incredible job of completing the capital building project at the club on budget and on time. From the time that this project was conceived, everyone at Beverly-Grant has had a proactive vision in every part of the project. Your team has been a true advocate for our needs and with our budget. You demonstrated an ability to listen to our wishes and made it a reality. The onsite management of Steve Suttles gave our team a confidence level that everything would always work out. Your team and sub-contractors were exceptional and delivered an extremely high level of finish throughout this project. Every phase of the project was handled in a professional manner, by proven professionals, in a timely manner. In my 30 plus years in clubs, I have never had a better building project experience!"
Calvin L. Bolling, CCM/COO/GM, Biltmore Forest Country Club


"We are pleased that we chose Beverly-Grant to build this warehouse. They are very professional and pay attention to details. The best way to judge their work is to see our warehouse."
Joe Fancher, General Manager, Brunner & Lay


"Our new campus for South College on Sweeten Creek Road in Asheville was the fifth project Beverly-Grant has completed for us as General Contractor. The 42,000 sf “Class A” office facility was completed on schedule in fall 2011. Beverly-Grant’s team worked under challenging schedule requirements, and was instrumental in delivering our facility on time and within budget. Our company continues to chose Beverly-Grant for their experienced professionals, commitment to excellence, and their integrity."
Brad Freeman, Sullivan & Chase, Inc.


"When it came time for us to plan an office expansion, we used our original construction company for the design work and then went out to bid to find a local contractor to manage the project. We ended up choosing Beverly-Grant primarily due to the reputation I learned about when checking with local references and for the professional and competent way they handled things during the bidding process. This proved to be the right decision. They worked very closely with our team to clarify and modify architectural drawings and did a great job of managing the schedule to keep things on track. Throughout this process and afterwards, they demonstrated a real commitment to our satisfaction. We really got the feeling that they would not stop working until we were completely satisfied with the finished product. On our next project, we will forgo the bidding process and use Beverly Grant from the beginning."
Jeff Mooney, Altec Industries


"Beverly-Grant is a real find. I place them in the upper ranks of any GC we have worked with."
