In July of 1976, a building legacy was born. He didn’t know it at the time, but George Cook’s small construction company would go on to build well over 500 projects along the rivers, oceans, and golf courses of Charleston, South Carolina. After 15 years of single-handily of managing Cook Construction, George knew his desire to continue to produce high quality homes could not continue as a job for one. In 1991, he would introduce his first partner, Rick Bonner. Rick brought years of procurement and construction experience to the table and was just what was needed to grow the company.
Cook Construction soon became Cook Bonner Construction and continued to build high-end homes throughout the Lowcountry. George and Rick surrounded themselves with teams members who respected and produce luxury homes. Building in one of the fastest growing areas in the United States proved to provide continuous opportunity for growth. In 2013, David Ebeling, who had been with Cook Bonner for several years was added to the team of partners. In 2020, David would become the managing partner, allowing George and Rick to both step back and enjoy the fruits of their career.
With the Lowcountry still trending as one of the hottest areas in the US to live and with George and Rick ready to relax and enjoy the salt water and fresh area, David invited Tray McCune to join the company in the Spring of 2020. Today, the building legacy continues as a staple in the Charleston construction industry. In July of 2021, Cook Bonner Ebeling will celebrate forty-six years in continuous business, and that’s something we are quite proud of.
