Our dedicated safety team stays at the forefront of emerging trends and best practices on job sites. These leaders take safety beyond just a checklist. They motivate and train our teams and trade partners to identify risks at the onset, practice accountability, and be a part of finding safety solutions.

Quality Control & Assurance
We prioritize quality at every stage of the build. We know that successful post-construction begins with a robust, seamless Quality Control Program that starts with the design phase and a detailed approach to subcontracting. At each phase of the project, we lean on the expertise of our dedicated quality control managers who lead inspections, pre-work mobilization meetings, pre-work checklists, monitoring of work, seamless turnover, and proactive maintenance and warranty.
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.
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.
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.
In 2003, presidential leadership passes to current President and CEO, Brian Daniel. During the last 20 years, Carroll Daniel Construction has seen the most significant period of growth in company history.
We have become a nationally recognized leader in the construction industry, earning countless State and National Project Awards, and consistently ranking among the nation’s Top 400 contractors by Engineering News Record Magazine. Our focus on our people and commitment to creating the best working environment have been recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, selecting Carroll Daniel for their list of Best Places to Work. During this era, we focused on workforce development, launching The Carroll Daniel Academy, a comprehensive employee training program, and our Apprenticeship Program for Field Engineers.
We are committed to strategically growing our business, diversifying our portfolio, and investing in our team members, guaranteeing Carroll Daniel Construction a successful future.
Since we broke ground on our first project nearly 80 years ago, Carroll Daniel Construction Company has experienced continuous growth and change, yet we remain anchored by the core values we were founded on – Relationships, Integrity, Stewardship and Excellence. Our brand is built on the Carroll Daniel Way; this is the vision we pursue, the culture we embrace, and the process we apply in everything we do. And as we move toward the future, we look forward to building new opportunities – for our people, for our clients, and for the many communities we serve.
