Founded in 2000 by Stuart Simon and Dan Watson, Simon & Watson Construction, Inc. has become one of the most highly respected General Contractors in the Carolinas and was recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2007 as one of America's Top 500 Companies.

Simon & Watson Construction, Inc. was founded on the principles of honesty, integrity, competitive pricing, completion of work on time and simply living up to one's word.  Stuart and Dan saw that these underlying principles were the exception in the industry.  Their commitment to honoring these principles with every client and project is evident in the fact that over 80% of their business is with repeat clients.  As a matter of fact, their clients have become their major contributors in securing and developing new relationships by recommending them to their associates.


Working together since 1988, and with over 60 years combined experience in the construction industry, Stuart and Dan saw the opportunity to form a company which would yield success based on the positive reputations they have established in the industry. While Stuart and Dan's backgrounds come from large companies with large projects, they do not hesitate to accommodate any client on any size project.  All clients receive the same dedicated commitment to service, value and quality that they deserve.


About Simon & Watson Construction, Inc.


The company's philosophy is to build long term relationships with owners, developers and architects that will bring repeat business and obtain strong referrals by providing competitive pricing, working within owner's budgets, completion of projects on-time, providing quality workmanship, standing behind their word and most importantly, valuing their clients.


Simon & Watson Construction, Inc. gives you experienced leadership; officers of the firm manage a client's project.  This insures that day-to-day decisions are made quickly to expedite project schedules in addition to leading our team by example.


Simon & Watson Construction, Inc. sets itself apart from its competition in many ways.  In today's world, most contractors are simply brokers who subcontract out all of the trades work.  Simon & Watson self-performs a majority of their work, including but not limited to:

  • Foundation excavation and backfill

  • Tying and placing rebar and mesh

  • Forming and pouring concrete foundations

  • Prepping slabs for pours

  • Installing metal and wood stud framing

  • Installing drywall and finishing

  • Installing all carpentry items such as: blocking, doors, frames, hardware and toilet accessories

  • Installing acoustical ceilings


Self-performing these trades keep us competitive but not having to mark-up a subcontractor's number, gives us the ability to control the schedule and to get the work done in a timely manner.
