The Challenges and Joys of Thinking Outside the Box

Sometimes when you think “outside the box,” a world of possibilities opens up before your eyes. Lyle D. Gardner, founder of Evergreen Construction Company, is that kind of thinker. Optimistic and determined, he opened for business in 1978 with a vision that immediately set him apart from other developers and builders. He believed that intelligent, attractive design could co-exist with affordable housing and set out to prove his point.

Forty-four successful rental communities later, consider his point well proven. Averaging at least one new community every year, Evergreen Construction Company has a steady track record of designing, building, and managing quality communities in towns and cities across North Carolina.

The Secret of a Successful Community

Even though our name is Evergreen Construction Company, we are part of the entire process of developing new communities – from the moment an idea takes shape in an architectural drawing to the day you move in. Our dedicated staff is always available to make sure you’re settled in and happy in your new home.
