A Lasting Legacy

Carroll Daniel Construction was founded in Gainesville, Georgia in 1946 by Carroll Ephraim Daniel.

A native of Northern Virginia, Carroll settled in Gainesville, Georgia after his service with the U.S. Army during WWII. Starting the business from a small office in downtown Gainesville, Carroll built his company on a foundation of integrity and a commitment to quality craftsmanship. The reputation he developed allowed the business to quickly expand with a new headquarters, a growing staff of professionals and craftsmen, and projects throughout the Southeastern United States.

A Lasting Legacy

Through the 1950s and 1960s, the company worked on many notable projects across a diverse range of project types.

We built the observatory atop Georgia’s highest peak, Brasstown Bald Mountain, partnered with a growing base of industrial clients including Coca-Cola Bottling, Johnson & Johnson and Georgia Power, and built the original Lanier Technical College campus in Oakwood, Georgia. Continued geographic growth allowed Carroll Daniel to open a second office near Orlando, Florida, where we built civic centers, office buildings and sports arenas, and even poured concrete for the NASA launch pads at Cape Canaveral. When our founder passed away in 1969, his son, Carroll “Ed” Daniel received early discharge from the U.S. Navy, and returned home at 23 years of age to take the reins of the family business.

A Lasting Legacy

Carroll Daniel’s contract volume doubles and the firm employs 100 people.

Through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, Ed expanded on his father’s legacy, building manufacturing facilities, schools, churches and medical facilities throughout Georgia and the surrounding states. In 1989, Carroll Daniel Construction won the inaugural Build Georgia Award for work on the Chateau Elan Winery and Resort In Braselton, Georgia. Ed passed away in 2003, and was recognized posthumously with the Georgia Associated General Contractors’ highest honor, the SIR Award for Skill, Integrity and Responsibility. Ed Daniel was known throughout the construction industry as a leader who practiced these values in everything he pursued.
