New South Construction's ownership understands that the employees are their most valuable asset.
Best Places to Work Survey

The real culture of any firm is how employees are treated and how decisions are made each day. We strive to meet the needs of our clients, our community and our own New South family.

Since our first project 27 years ago, New South has believed that service to our customers would provide and establish a path for our company's future. From day one our foundation has been based on taking care of our clients and it has paid off handsomely as the majority of our projects today consist of repeat business and referrals, proving we have undoubtedly succeeded in our early mission. As we embark on our 27th year, we recognize that these guiding principles have laid the groundwork for our reputation of distinction, which we have worked so very hard to earn in our industry. Our philosophy has resulted in our continuous growth, repeat business and ongoing success. Despite our growth, we remain client driven rather than revenue driven.
