Our Story

BHG Design & Build got it's start on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Hayley worked as a manager at a large plant nursery/ landscape company and Barret worked as a project manager for a large construction firm. With both of their work skills and strong work ethics they decided to strike out on their own after a couple years.

This is where the company officially became BHG Design & Build in Charlotte, NC. We are still proud to be serving Hawaii through the design portion of the company, creating 3D designs for high end multiple dwelling properties and custom built homes.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to providing our clients with high-quality construction, on-time completion, within budget, and excellent customer service.
