“Good communication and working closely with the architect made this project a success.”

Emmitt Black

“Hands on management, the ability to meet the architect’s and the owner’s requests on time made this a really successful project. We are fortunate to have great clients and team members that makes us look good.”

Clinton M. Black II

“During my 30-year career in higher education, I’ve been involved in the planning and construction of dozens of campus facilities. The most pleasant and successful project I have dealt with was the construction of the George Batte Fine Arts Center on the Wingate University campus. It was an absolute joy to work with Clinton and Emmitt Black and their entire staff. I recommend them with great enthusiasm.”
