Our Story

Carrell Group Mission

Bruce Carrell started the company for one reason, made clear in Carrell Group’s Mission Statement:

To provide a quality product, service and building experience for our clients, rewarding employment for our staff, and buildings of lasting value, by dealing fairly, honestly, and professionally with every aspect of our business, while earning a reasonable profit for what we do.

Great Results are to be expected

The Carrell Group (Parent of subsidiaries Carrell Homes and Carrell Commercial Construction) has been building and designing Custom Homes, Renovations and Commercial projects since 1987. Since Carrell Group’s founding in 1987, the company has built over 900 homes along the Carolina coast and beyond. If you add the homes that were designed by Carrell Group, it’s resume of homes built and/or designed in the Carolinas is well over 1500!

Founded by Bruce A. Carrell, a third generation builder with an educational background from Indiana University in Business Administration and upbringing in home design and construction, the company has been built around commitment to customer satisfaction and business integrity. In 1999, Sonya Carrell (Bruce’s wife) joined the team as Vice President. Sonya later ventured off to form another subsidiary of Carrell Group by founding the interior design company, Grand Designs (www.granddesignsmb.com). Today, Bruce and Sonya both oversee their individual companies, Carrell Group and Grand Designs, to ensure the ultimate “turnkey” package for their custom clients: they design the building with 3-D design/build capability (FREE to building clients!), construct the structure, and perfect the creations with the interior design finishing touches. Carrell Groups “start to finish” product, coupled with its longevity in the industry are rivaled by very few companies in the Carolinas. It is truly a design/building company with a long respected tradition.

Today, Carrell Group has met and often exceeded Bruce’s original expectations. Carrell Group is not just a residential contractor. Carrell Group is an unlimited General Contractor with unlimited 3-D design capabilities- Renovation, Residential, or Commercial. Carrell Group’s recent resume (2008 until now) includes: HURRICANE reinforced construction expert- 20 FORTIFIED (www.disastersafety.org) certified homes in 5 years, over 100 Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) Constructed Homes; MEGA HOME Construction Expert – 2 homes of 18,000 sf + and 1 home of 28,000 sf; 2008 and 2009 FIRST PLACE WINNER in high end residential Brunswick County Parade of Homes (Construction AND Interior Design); 3 Time/1st Place WINNER in ICF Builder Magazine’s Best Residential ICF Home in International competition held in Las Vegas, Nevada; Long list of recent SATISFIED CLIENTS; Mediterranean and Caribbean Design Expert- over 100 homes built in this style; Renovations Expert- 25 projects in 7 years in large scale renovations.; Remote Construction Services- homes built throughout the Carolinas from Myrtle Beach area to Florence, South Carolina to Raleigh, North Carolina; Energy Efficiency expert with building projects featuring geo thermal/Water Conservation/Spray Foam Insulation/High Seer Equipment Installs up to 20 Seer/Countless Rinnai Water Heater systems/ and Energy Star Certification.

Carrell Group’s “Commitment to Excellence” is the basis of our past success, and the foundation of our future. As we enter 2018 and our 31st year in business, we aim to be the premiere design/build custom homebuilder in the Carolinas. However, first and foremost, our goal is to make today’s clients happy, informed, and comfortable, living or working in their Carrell Group structure. “Our Reputation is Building…”
