Ethos

We have the honor, ability, and responsibility to build a better world for our team, clients, industry, and community.

For over a century, the modern construction industry has been the backbone of American success. With foundations built of concrete and steel, legacies built on gypsum and sawdust, it goes without saying that this industry literally built the American dream.

But the industry is stuck. It’s being held back by outdated processes and is missing out on the opportunity to improve the construction experience for the next generation.

That’s why we’re here.

At Palmisano, our vision for a better world has made us the Southeast’s newest leader in construction. Our foundation is built on a proven heritage of quality, service and contribution.

And even though our roots go back nearly 70 years, we’re just getting started.

We know that to continue our legacy of hard work, partnership and philanthropy, we have to evolve. That’s why we created a new kind of construction company designed to foster the next generation of leaders. A place where talented renegades are empowered to share their best work with millions of people—and where bold new ideas and technologies are embraced and cultivated.

Banded together with a renegade mentality, we relentlessly drive real value through our transformative projects and a shared vision for smarter, healthier cities.

We aren’t just a construction company. We are entrepreneurs who are empowered to drive real change. We are creators who believe that place and space matters and that what we build together drives the growth of cities—not to mention the world’s next generation of great thinkers and doers that live there.

And we are deeply embedded in these communities. Our contribution and commitment come through well beyond the buildings and infrastructure we create. We want to be a force for social innovation. We want to help solve problems and transform lives. We want to make a real difference.

And that’s how, together—we will build a better world.

CORE vALUES

Our core values are the yardstick by which we measure ourselves. Whenever we are facing a tough choice, these values inform our decisions.

SAFETY ALWAYS

Protecting each other through efficient best practices is integrated into everything we do. Getting the job done is expected, but never more important than preserving the lives and health of fellow team members.

RENEGADE MENTALITY

Hard work, passion and excellence, built us up – working smarter moves us forward. From the technologies we use, to cross-team communication, to how we manage projects, we’re not just at the cutting edge – we’re creating new maps for our industry.

SWEEP FLOORS

None of us are above rolling up our sleeves to get things done. Pride in our work shows in even the smallest details. Because we do whatever it takes, we maintain our reputation every day.

BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

Our founders espoused what will always be true: the purpose and essence of life is building relationships. We’re a fun group to work with, and the world knows it.

ABSOLUTE INTEGRITY

We care about the people we collaborate with, and it shows in our actions. We are all personally vested in our work and always keep our promises.

THESE ARE THE PROMISES WE MAKE TO OUR CLIENTS AT THE START OF EACH PROJECT:

WORKING SMARTER TO BUILD BETTER

Our renegade mentality means that we will relentlessly pursue value.

PARTNERSHIP MENTALITY

We care deeply about relationships and each project. We don’t rest unless the client is happy.

HONOR OUR PROMISES

We will always deliver by doing whatever it takes to get the job done.
