Our Story

Read More

Construction Professionals, Inc. (CPI) was founded in 1989 by H. Grae Rambo, IV. Our focus from the beginning has been to provide general contracting services to private development professionals.  We have developed a client list which includes the premier developers in the Charleston area and the state of South Carolina.

In 1996 we began construction on our first hotel project. Since that time, we have built over 30 hotels. On most projects our services include working with the development and design teams to insure our clients receive the very most value for their dollar spent. In fact, given our experience and expertise in hotel development and construction, the greatest value for our services is provided in the pre-construction stage. We evaluate methods and systems, taking into consideration current market conditions, to insure the very best and most efficient product for our clients.

Once construction begins, CPI fields an experienced team of project managers, supervisors and craftsmen to build finished products of which we and our clients can be proud.

Our greatest accomplishment and testimony to our success is the fact that historically over 85% of the projects we build are for repeat clients. Those repeat clients know that not only will CPI perform above expectations during development and construction, we will also stand with them to identify and correct any issue that may arise while the building is in service. In other words, we will always answer the phone, and we always stand behind our work.

Our goal has been and is to be the premier hotel contractor in the Charleston area whose clients are the premier hotel developers in Charleston. We have achieved that goal and plan on remaining at the top for years – even for generations to come.

CPI is set apart in the achievement of that goal by more than our experience and expertise. We are unique among today’s general contractors in that we self-perform much of our work. CPI has in house plumbing, electrical, and concrete crews. We do not sub out masonry, framing, or drywall to large lump sum sub-contractors. We buy virtually all the material for those phases of the work and hire labor only installers who function under our direct supervision. As such, we have greater control over the cost, scheduling and finish product. We’d rather do fewer projects and control more pieces of the work done than build many buildings by subbing out the vast majority of the work. We feel our results have proven our methodology to be effective and cost efficient.

It’s somewhat cliché, but most of all, we feel our clients want to work with us because they know they can trust us. This is construction and things don’t always go according to plan. But our clients are always sure that we are working in their best interest. And that assurance has established and maintained many valuable relationships over the years.
