            . . . I am in the finance business and I interact with contractors quite often in my work. I can say, Gaffney Construction is one of the premier companies in our area to work with if integrity, professionalism, and relationships are important to you.

Gaffney Construction is also known for our tenant improvement and remodeling projects because of the excellent working relationships we establish with our clients and their employees. This results in minimal inconvenience for customers during business hours. 

Gaffney employees are noted for always maintaining a clean environment on the job, resulting in an excellent safety record for our company.

Gaffney Construction has demonstrated successful completion of all projects on time or ahead of schedule, and within or under budget.

As over 75% of our business is negotiated or by referral, emphasis on fulfilling client's needs for both aesthetically pleasing and quality construction has earned Gaffney Construction the reputation as a first class general contractor.

Our focus from the beginning has continued to be giving back to our community. We at Gaffney Construction feel great dedication to this, in knowing that it is in this community that our success has been made possible. Whereas all of our clients are important to us, we hold a special place for all of our non-profit clients. We value our experiences in working as a team with them, keeping costs down and delivering a final product, that we know will be well utilized and a great benefit to those who need it most. We look forward to doing business here for years to come, and are raising a new generation of Gaffneys with a love of giving back.

  • 2000 Small Business Executive of the year: Jim Gaffney  


Gaffney Construction commits to providing a safe and healthy environment for each of our employees, subcontractors, and for the general public. Our safety record stands to show our dedication to this very important part of the construction business.

Accidents lead to inefficient operation by increasing cost and decreasing production. Even more important, they interfere with the health and home life of our most valuable asset – our employees. The prevention of occupational injury is of such importance, it is given top priority at all times. 

At Gaffney Construction we abide by all OSHA and WISHA safety standards. We require all on our construction sites to abide by the same high standards we expect of our own employees.
