We love what we do.

Buchanan Construction Services is a leading commercial building service provider in South Carolina as defined by our dedication to quality and integrity and our commitment to accelerating the success of our clients. We have a passion for building and for being the best we can be. We take pride in our final product as well as the process through which it was accomplished.

Our belief that the owner, designer and builder work as a team has contributed to our success and longevity as demonstrated by our client relationships and repeat business. Relationships with our partners – architects, engineers, subcontractors and vendors – are deeply rooted in respect. We treat them fairly, and we work jointly to create successful projects for our owners.

We realize that our clients’ work environment presents the chance for them to communicate the story of their business, culture and identity to the world. By listening to their needs, we can help create their vision. The care and thought that goes into this environment can have a remarkable impact on not just customer satisfaction, but also on worker productivity.

Since our beginning in 2004, we’ve seen vast changes in the construction industry, but one thing has remained constant – our quality. We have a steadfast commitment to our client and and respect their valuable resources.

Our Mission

To develop and maintain a sound and prosperous business; BCS assumes its responsibilities toward the communities and environments in which we operate and toward our employees, business partners and society in general.

To be an honest and ethical commercial builder of choice while providing the client with high quality construction through superior service; to add value for clients through innovation, foresight, integrity and aggressive performance; and to serve with character and purpose that brings honor to God.

In an industry driven by bottom lines, we will stay driven by building long-term relationships. We will focus on understanding the needs of our clients and making sure we excel in fulfilling these needs while providing quality and value in all we do.

What we do

Buchanan Construction Services provides general contracting, design-build and consulting services for commercial new construction and renovation projects, primarily in medical, office, retail and warehouse facilities.

Regardless of the project delivery method, Buchanan Construction Services believes early collaboration will provide the best value for every project. We know that every project and every client is unique. That’s why we tailor our services to meet your specific needs and the needs of your project, from design and permitting all the way through completion. We work with you to define and meet your schedule and financial objectives. Our signature is our customer service. That’s why we work so hard to see to it that you’re satisfied with our work.

General Contracting

Contracting directly with owners, BCS pulls the pieces of the construction puzzle together. Our knowledgeable and committed staff work to provide a professional, quality product to reach our clients goals and desired results. From ground-up new construction to renovations and interior upfits, BCS can meet your commercial construction needs by being proactive contributors throughout the building process.

Renovations and Up-fits

Renovating and/or up-fitting an existing building can be an arduous undertaking. We work with and stay in constant contact with the project owner to make sure the work is completed with as few disruptions as possible.


With our design-build delivery system, Buchanan Construction Services handles your entire construction project, streamlining the demanding construction process. With a design-build contract, the design and construction aspects are carried out by a single entity. This system is used to minimize the project risk for an owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases.  We bring together collaborative professionals to complete the project on time and within budget.

Construction Management

We can use our years of experience to guide and advise owners as a construction manager. We can assist in the overall planning, design and cost of your project.

Pre-construction Services

Ground-breaking is often perceived as the start of a project, but in reality, pre-construction planning starts long before the bulldozers show up. Buchanan Construction Services offers experienced leadership and advice on budget, scheduling and construction services so that a comprehensive plan is in place before building starts.

Consulting Services

Maybe you need someone to look over a site or existing building to help evaluate issues or concerns. Let us tailor a service to meet your needs.
