Sherman Construction:
The Early Days

Since 1949, Sherman Construction has been providing unparalleled construction services. Robert Sherman founded our company, Sherman Masonry, as a masonry contractor building relationships, working diligently, and consistently delivering on promises. For years, Sherman Masonry provided excellent quality and workmanship on key projects throughout the Upstate community. During the years of major interstate highway development in the US and the correlated growth of the oil industry highways, Sherman expanded its services into building gas stations along those newly built highways throughout the Southeast for clients like Gulf, Esso/Exxon and Texaco.

From that expansion, Sherman Construction Company was formally organized as a general contractor providing turn-key construction services in 1961. Sherman Construction has steadily grown over the last few decades and is currently a predominantly CM at-Risk contractor. Sherman Construction delivers high quality preconstruction and construction services through an efficient management structure that continues to provide clients with direct access to company leadership. In the end, our goal is simple: Deliver first-class construction services to ensure our clients will rave about Sherman Construction and a job well done.
