We take the headache out of construction planning.

We’re here to fix the construction process and make things better for everyone involved.

If you have ever done a construction project, you have probably encountered some of the common frustrations: waiting months (or even years) for construction plans, hearing  “that won’t work” — but without any explanation as to why, ending up with results that are not only NOT quite what you wanted, but also left you feeling like you were cheated along the way.

It does not have to be that way!

Phase One is revolutionizing the construction industry in and around Columbia SC by putting people and process before profits, and getting things done — in scope, on time, and on budget.

We talk with you, not at you. And we present you with all of the information you need to choose what you want and who you work with.

Start with a construction consultation. 

Making Construction better.

Phase One is a unique collaboration of contractors, architects, engineers, designers, and project managers all under one roof, with one mission — to make the planning and construction process straightforward, fast, and easy for everyone involved — in both commercial and residential construction.

Do things right — the first time

  1. Understand the project. Before you build, buy, or demo, get a feasibility analysis and viability study to determine the construction realities of your project. 
  2. Understand the price. Once we understand the project, we can give you a realistic expectation of what it will cost and help you set a budget before you start talking with contractors.
  3. Then get the plans. Contractors hate the back and forth between architecture, engineering, and schematic design. Let us help you get finished plans before you engage with the final builder. 
  4. THEN build the project. Once scope, cost, and plans are developed, it’s time to assemble your dream team and make it happen.
If you get this order right, you’ll be in your new space faster, and with less headache. Guaranteed.


We know the ins-and-outs of construction, and we know what it takes to get a project off the ground.
