Residential and Commercial Construction in Bluffton SC

Ashworth Construction Group combines a commitment for excellence with a talented team of professionals.

The Experience You Want. 

The Design-Build Process You Need.

The homebuilding process can be intimidating. Many people work their entire lives to afford their “dream home.”

At Ashworth Construction Group, we do not take this lightly. We strive to ensure that the finished project lives up the hopes and dreams of our clients.

Ashworth Construction Group was created with the idea that every client is unique and they should be treated as such. We believe that high quality residential and commercial construction requires a responsible team with the experience, talent and skill set to make projects a reality.

Our staff is a close-knit unit that efficiently runs commercial and residential building projects throughout greater Bluffton SC. Our clients can expect to remain completely informed from design to finish, and trust that their project is in the hands of experienced and knowledgeable construction professionals.

Ashworth Construction Group offers a personalized experience for homeowners and business owners in which our staff is heavily involved with each project. To ensure a standard of excellence, we are selective on which projects to take on. Clients have a direct line to the owners, who are hands-on and know every detail of ongoing projects. Individualized service is a priority no matter the size of the project.

Owners Craig Whitley and Edward Welch have nearly 30 years of combined experience in the construction and home building industry, enabling them to offer their clients valuable insights and direction throughout the process.

Commercial construction and custom home builds are large investments that require a keen eye to budget and efficiency. To complete a project with the desired results, Ashworth Construction Group strives for transparency, always giving precise estimates and accurate timelines that keep clients informed every step of the way.

That’s where our knowledge of the Lowcountry area’s building business is most valuable. We have the experience to make adjustments and navigate through unexpected challenges to achieve satisfaction for our clients.
