Quality and Integrity Since 1956

DIVISION 13 AND TURNKEY CONSTRUCTION SERVICES FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT IN GEORGIA AND BEYOND

Since 1956, Rainwater Construction has provided the Atlanta metro area with best-in-class commercial construction and division 13 PEMB erector services. Founded in Atlanta, with service capabilities that extend throughout the southern states, our company culture seamlessly blends old-fashioned Southern hospitality with a dedication to transparency, honesty and integrity in all our relationships.

We take our role as a commercial building contractor very seriously. We understand that the decision to embark on a new construction project is one that can make or break a business. That is why we are committed to treating each and every project as if we are building it for ourselves.

PRICING & BUDGET

Our pricing and budget management are designed to deliver value above all else.

CONSTRUCTION METHODS

Our construction methods deliver longevity and efficiency that exceed expectations.

MATERIALS & SUBCONTRACTORS

We source materials and subcontractors with a focus on quality.

THE KEYS TO SUCCESS

Cecil Rainwater founded the Rainwater Construction Company in 1956 with the notion that the key to success was doing a good job at a fair price. Throughout the ensuing decades, he employed his children, wife, and brother, along with a team of dedicated employees, many of whom have spent fifty years or more with the company and are still with us today.

For more than sixty years, this family-owned business has pushed through recessions and economic downturns, managed leadership transitions, and evolved with the advancements in building methodology to complete more than 2,700 projects totaling more than 50,000,000 square feet. Our team has enjoyed the good times and survived the lean times together, and these experiences have given us the experience and know-how we rely on today to deliver a best-in-class product to a customer base that has come to expect nothing less.

Much has changed over the years, but Cecil’s original notion remains a constant. Today, our offices may look a bit different and there may be some new faces around the job site, but we are just as dedicated to delivering quality work at a fair price as Cecil was back in 1956.
