In April of 2003, President Robert “Bobby” Alexander founded Pyramid Contracting, LLC. At its conception, the firm consisted of a handful of employees headquartered in Irmo, SC. Pyramid spent its first decade developing its principles and reputation as a dependable provider of professional construction services. Even as a young company, it remained profitable through the economic downturn in 2008 and by 2013 was garnering awards for impressive delivery of local municipal and institutional projects.
In 2015, Pyramid looked to capitalize upon its strong success and further expedite growth by enrolling in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Construction Program. Upon enrolling, Pyramid outfitted its government division of construction to engage and pursue federal military contracts with the purpose of establishing competitiveness in the private construction/development market. Just three years after enrolling in the 8(a) program Pyramid Contracting was being named ‘South Carolina’s 8(a) Construction Firm of the Year’ by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Today, the firm has grown to six locations and developed a professional workforce of seventy-plus employees, spread across three states (SC, NC, GA). Pyramid Contracting has earned a reputation for quality, safety, and integrity – providing general construction and construction management services in a wide range of industries and project sizes.
Regardless of the type of project, prior to mobilization, planning is done on many fronts. Pyramid, its subcontractors and vendors work in conjunction to develop schedules for project delivery. In depth review of plans and delivery of construction services are discussed.
Our Design/Build Team can take a project from concept to completion. Beginning with concepts, maturing through design development and proceeding to construction are time proven steps to bring projects to a successful start. These steps include budget to hard pricing and project schedules.
Through disciplined oversite, communications, and continual project/site supervision your project will be on the path to success. Routine jobsite meetings, as well as Quality Control Management meetings (QCM) with trades, help ensure successful project execution. Safety inspections and oversite ensure workers and visitors are in a safe environment and have the opportunity to go home safely. Daily reporting of activities assist in allowing each project to remain on schedule.
The construction phase is critical to all parties involved: Owner and Pyramid Team. Projects finished on time and safely with quality construction at fair market value are some of the basic goals for everyone involved.
Our project turnover or close-out discipline is critical to clients and Pyramid. We believe in QCM “pre-punch” activities rather than just wait until the walkthrough list. We choose to pre-punch our buildings and have very limited punch lists.
Project completion typically involves “as-built” documents, releases of liens, complete lists of suppliers and subcontractors, maintenance manuals, lists of all major components incorporated in the project and these documents provide guidance for the years to come. Warranties from subtrades and manufacturers are delivered.
Pyramid Contracting analyzes our projects at completion to help identify areas of improvement for future projects as well.
Each member of Pyramid brings a level of experience and expertise that is unique and ultimately results in a Team that is stronger as a whole. We’ve assembled a group of individuals that have extensive experience with Public, Private, Federal, and Municipal sector construction projects.
Our Team represents a combination of talented individuals and expert resources, diligently recruited for their ability to produce a highly-skilled, process-oriented faction, fully capable of providing the necessary experience to perform the requirements of any client or opportunity.

The result has been amazing, and our building was complimented by the State Board of Pharmacy upon its inspection. I look forward to a continued relationship with what I have found to be an extremely well managed and ethical group.

I appreciate Pyramid particularly bringing the job to completion on-time and under budget. The ideas brought to the table in the form of alternative value-engineering was invaluable.
