Wayne Berry


Wayne Berry is a licensed general contractor and has a mechanical engineering degree from the University of South Carolina.

Prior to launching Berry Builders, Wayne spent 22 years working at South Carolina Electric & Gas where he wrote many Construction Standards for Electrical Utility Facilities. Through this experience, he has become extremely well versed with both commercial and residential building codes. During his tenure at SCE&G, he also managed the procurement department where he developed a new skillset of developing cost cutting initiatives, and has been able to apply those skills to his personal business, which ultimately helps benefit his clients!

The only thing stronger than the dedication to his work is the cleverness he brings to each project and client. As we all realize, building something new (whether it’s a new home or a new commercial building) can be stressful. But using his wit and humorous charm, Wayne is able to make every phase of each project both educational and fun!
