Who We Are
Achieving More Together
Time Tested and Future Focused
Van Winkle Construction is a fourth-generation enterprise dedicated to teamwork, communication, and personal service founded in 1931. Ed Van Winkle Sr established the company during the depths of America’s Great Depression with the belief that building a successful project and building successful relationships were one and the same. That foundation remains steadfast. Van Winkle Construction’s continued commitment to others through good work upholds our century-long reputation as one of the Southeast’s most trusted and respected construction companies.
We hold seven state licenses: Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Florida.

Achieving More Together
We act on our faith. Van Winkle holds Christian values and was formally dedicated to Christ in 2001. We are called to serve our communities and build His Kingdom – sometimes in a literal way – and bring people together.
We are mission oriented. We are united in improving our communities and supporting one another through professional and personal passions. On the project and in service, we keep our eye on the prize.
We want to work with you. How can we achieve more together if we are not together? We want to form a relationship with you, and not just in business. We want to know you and support your goals. When we work as one, we reach greater heights with every project we complete and relationship we build.
We do not wait for things to happen. We make them happen. Rather than focus on what our culture embodies, ours emphasizes how we achieve more together.

Protecting What is Most Important
People are Van Winkle’s greatest asset. We take staff safety as seriously as the safety of our own family members. In 2003, Van Winkle Construction became a registered Drug-Free workplace, and our exceptional Safety standards grew with the company’s success through innovation, training, and proactive intervention. We regularly refine our approach to ensure the safety of our project sites and team members.
Our dedication to achieving no recordable injuries supports a safe, productive working environment. Our Corporate Safety Program establishes safe working methods and instills a strong safety consciousness among employees, Subcontractors, and material suppliers. Our exceptional onsite safety record proves our success.
Following God’s Mission
As a General Contractor, we are responsible for the construction of buildings, but as disciples called by God, we are responsible for building and supporting our community through charitable acts and donations. Good works in the spirit of charity mean more than taking an active role in God’s mission; acts of service offer the chance for us to lead, share, learn, and collaborate alongside others towards the common goal of building a better world.
Our #VanWinklehelps program organizes and executes outreach projects for our local communities and beyond. Our most well-known event, the annual Shoot for Literacy, benefits the Matthew E. Russell Foundation in their mission to promote literacy – and inspire positive change – in South Africa’s impoverished communities.
