About Us

Groundwork.   Earthwork.   Teamwork.

O.L. Thompson Construction Co., Inc.

For over 65 years, O.L. Thompson Construction Co., Inc. has served as one of the tri-county area’s premier sitework construction firms. Our main emphasis is in the area of site development, material handling, and transportation; our current scope of work includes demolition, clearing, grubbing, excavation, storm drainage, sanitary sewer, potable water, concrete, curbing, asphalt paving, and material recycling & processing. We have the capabilities to perform a turnkey operation in the area of site development.

A major attribute of our company is the ability to move large volumes of earth in short periods of time. This is accomplished by operating one of the largest mining operations in the Charleston area, having a large fleet of off-road trucks and support equipment, and having affiliated companies to offer in-house support. Thompson Trucking Co., Inc. is one of the largest bulk material transport companies in the area and utilizes up to 100 haulers on a daily basis. Wando Redimix, a redi-mix concrete supplier, is an additional affiliate that allows us to encompass a larger portion of a construction project with either on- or off-site batching.

O.L. Thompson Construction Co., Inc. is proud of our dedicated people, and we strive to provide a safety-conscious and growth-oriented environment. Strong leadership is the key to accomplishing this goal. Our project managers assist in estimating and bidding as well as managing projects, and highly skilled general superintendents and foremen oversee the projects. We feel our management style gives the supervisory personnel a complete understanding of the project and therefore allows them to perform quickly and cost effectively, while strengthening our safety culture and workforce simultaneously.

Fast Track is a way of life for us. Our management team has the ability to get your project completed safely, on time, and on budget. Each project becomes a partnership with the owner and/or site developer and other contractors to ensure a quality finished product.

Our typical jobs involve construction of private development projects, public and government projects, and commercial development. Previous project costs range from a few thousand dollars to in excess of 60 million dollars. We hold a South Carolina Unlimited Contractor license.

Our signature projects are some of the most recognizable landmarks in the Lowcountry, including The Ravenel Bridge Project, Nucor Steel, Daniel Island Development, North Charleston Coliseum, Boeing, Bushy Park Industrial Park, Mt Holly Commerce Park, NNPTC, State Ports Authority, Westavco, Family circle Tennis Stadium, plus hundreds of other residential, multifamily, commercial, and industrial projects.

O.L. Thompson Construction Co., Inc. would be an asset to your project because of our location, experience, capability, and ability to perform. Additionally, we are financially stable and have the bonding capability to perform any site development you may need.
