My company has been in the development business for over 50 years. We have developed sixty-seven shopping centers and retail projects around the southeast. During that period we have used a number of different construction companies to build our projects.
Billy Lawrence of Lawrence General Contracting, Inc. was introduced to me approximately four years ago and we used his company to construct Phase I of our project at St. Simons Island. It became very obvious from the start that he was a very hands on, organized, and dependable. We subsequently used him to build Phase II of that same project and was also finished on time and on budget. We have entered into an additional contract for Phase III of this same project.
I would summarize working with Lawrence General Contracting as dependable, very hands on and has never hesitated to come back and make changes or replacements as needed. He has always been ver accessible and been a pleasure to work with.
I would not hesitate to recommend him for any commercial construction projects.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend Billy Lawrence as a general contractor. As senior partner in a seven doctor OB-GYN group, I worked closely with him 4 years ago when he was the project manager of our new $4 million office on 4th Street in Brunswick.
For the past year, my wife and I have again been working with him as his company is building our new home and horse barn in Camden County. This is a project totaling well over 1 million dollars.
He has brought both projects in on schedule and under budget. I have gotten nothing but positive feedback from his Subs. I would recommend Lawrence General Contracting Inc. without reservation, and would not hesitate to use him again.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please feel free to call me.

We built a new 6000 square foot general aviation terminal building with a large porte-cochere that we share with the new Hilton Home 2 Suites located adjacent to us, and Lawrence General Contracting, Billy Lawrence, was our general contractor on the job.
If anyone was to ask me what my experience was with Billy and his company, I would have to sum it up in one sentence, "If I have another project that is in need of a general contractor, Billy and his company will be the first ones called."
This company was always available, working to get the best results, timely, upfront, professional, and provided subcontractors at prices that were very competitive in this marketplace. I have (as any job will) had a few wrinkles to get ironed out after moving in, and Billy has seen to each one quickly and graciously.
Billy worked well with my architect, Larry Bryson, and attended any and every meeting that we requested him to attend. He gave his time generously. Also, I enjoyed and appreciated working with the subcontractors he had on the job who were friendly, moral and responsive.
I certainly recommend Lawrence General Contacting. This was the first time we had worked together, and I hope it won't be the last.

Victory Storage Company
Approximately 2 1/2 years ago I selected Mr. Billy Lawrence to build a 4 story climate controlled self storage building on a very small site on St. Simons Island. Over the past 33 years I have built 25 or so self storage buildings and always acted as my own contractor. In this case, I knew what I wanted and I knew how to build it. What I did not feel comfortable doing was building a 4 story building (9000 sf footprint) on a 15,000 sf lot with hardly any extra room to work with.
I turned to Lawrence General Contracting who had expertise to build it. They came in on budget, on time and as importantly, they kept job site distraction and disruption to a minimum. I'm very pleased and would recommend him highly.

My professional association with Mr. Lawrence began during the late 80's. From approximately 1988 until 2017 my contact with Mr. Lawrence was and is with respect to his capacity as Project Manager, representing the General Contractor's with whom he had been employed.

Additionally, we are working together on several new projects located in the Brunswick and Golden Isles.
In all areas of construction, from bidding process through the close out of construction and owner occupancy, I have always experienced Mr. Lawrence to be of superior character and professionalism. The quality control and sub-contractor relationships employed by Mr. Lawrence have been excellent and that of mutual respect.

Wiregrass Studio, INC.
Billy Lawrence and I have worked together on a number of projects over the past 14 years, including a high-end residential project, an art studio rehabilitation of a historic downtown warehouse, and new commercial shopping complex. During the time Mr. Lawrence proved to be not only a hard-working and competent general contractor but loyal to the interest of our client. He was dedicated to the success of each project from day one and always mindful of quality and budget.
Mr. Lawrence runs a smooth operation. On the rare occasion he had to come to the table with a problem, he always had one or two solutions to present at the same time.
On a more professional level Mr. Lawrence has an ease of character that makes him a pleasure to work with. Although I know him mainly through work, I consider Billy a friend. He treats everyone with respect and in doing so fostered good relationships with clients, subcontractors and architects. Based on my experience with him, I can unreservedly recommend Mr. Lawrence as general contractor for your project.

I write this letter with enormous gratitude to Billy Lawrence for his commitment to the construction of Seaside Ophthalmology in Seaside Surgical Center. I have worked with Lawrence General Contracting in the past, but the most recent realization of the only Ophthalmology Clinic, Ambulatory Surgery Center & Optical Dispensary all Under One Roof was quite an undertaking for any company. Billy not only demonstrated excellent organization skills from a building standpoint, but he tirelessly devoted himself to successfully meeting the myriad local, state, and federal surveys and regulations placed upon a business such as mine.
Billy was available for questions and progress reviews at any hour, any day of the week. His dedication to my project was obvious, and the morale of his subcontractors and their crews was always uplifting. Most importantly, we were not only able to move in before the projected date, but we came in under budget!
I highly recommend Lawrence General Contracting for any residential or commercial project, whether it be new construction or renovation. Billy Lawrence's integrity and competency put him in an elite class of local businessmen.

Harrison Design Associates
Mr. Lawrence recently completed the construction of a 7,700 square foot medical clinic and outpatient surgical center for which Harrison Design Associates acted as the architect of record. Mr. Lawrence work closely with the owner and design team throughout the design phase of this project. His input and expertise were helpful in creating a design that could be built within the required schedule and budget.
During the construction phase, mr. Lawrence required little guidance from Harrison Design Associates. His expertise and work ethic not only satisfied our expectations for quality and design, but most importantly satisfy the needs of the client. He approached the construction schedule and budget in a very thorough and professional manner, and completed the project in a timely fashion. It is apparent that he has a comprehensive understanding of construction, from coordination of architectural and engineering design, through permitting and execution. The result is a building, of superb quality a building everyone involved with can be proud of.
I would highly recommend that you consider Mr. Lawrence for your upcoming construction project. Contact me if you have any questions.

Golden Isle Plastic Surgery Center
I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Billy Lawrence for a job well done! He served as general contractor for new office facility, Island Health, on Saint Simons Island. As we approached the building phase that Island Health Project, I was often warned about General Contractors and told that I would have to be ready for lengthy delays and major cost overruns.
As we approach the bid phase, Mr. Lawrence came highly recommended by Dr. Carlton and several others. He has expertise in a wide variety of building projects both residential and commercial. The bidding process required that the contractors be bonded, and Mr. Lawrence when the extra efforts to get bonded so that he could participate. When the bids returned, Mr. Lawrence was the winner based on a combination of time and budget.
During the building process, Mr. Lawrence was always available for consultation and made efforts to keep us updated on progress. He has a forthright demeanor and has the respect of his contractors. He established and maintained a firm construction schedule. Any delays we experience for either weather-related or result of my indecision about interior details. He was always patient with my questions and took initiative in finding and suggesting Innovative products with the building finishes.
I wish you well and your building project. You will be blessed have Mr. Lawrence as your contractor. I am always excited to show off our new office, so please call if you have any questions and we can give you a tour as well.
