Building Our History
In 1963, registered professional engineer and entrepreneur B.D. Rodgers was 39 years old when he left a healthcare architectural firm to strike out on his own and start a construction company with one truck, a superintendent and $5,000 borrowed from his life insurance policy. Basing his career on a foundation of integrity and enduring quality, Rodgers will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2013 and is one of the nation’s most respected general contractors.
While Rodgers takes pride in its company’s exemplary reputation, Rodgers attributes the firm’s continuing success to the company’s leadership and the firm's success in recruiting and retaining a talented and experienced team. Over the years, Rodgers has received many accolades, including multiple Pinnacle Awards from the Carolinas AGC and the Pinnacle Achievement Award for General Contractor of the Year.
As President & CEO Pat Rodgers explains, “We build buildings, but most of all we build relationships.” Rodgers has been successful by building on a foundation of integrity and services to its clients, its employees, and the community, and will continue to build the best for the Southeast for generations to come.
