Client Testimonials

We have worked with Ferrara Buist as a general contractor over the past decade. We have completed several projects ranging from commercial offices, to medical, and restaurants from the ground up. Notably, Ferrara Buist built a 16,000 foot, ground- up, best-in-class, daycare in Tega Cay, SC. We have recently hired them to be our building partner on a multi-building development that will consist of 4 buildings ranging from 4,500 sq. to 16,000 sq. They are responsive, creative and delivered on price, quality, and most importantly the schedule. Please accept this letter of recommendation for Ferrara Buist on behalf of LCRE Partners.
