Giving You An Unfair Advantage
“The ‘Bobbitt Gives Back’ program was created to reflect on Bobbitt’s rich history and recognize the incredible support the community has given to us over the decades,” said company president Jim Bell. “Thanks to our clients, friends and neighbors, our company has not only prospered in great economic times but overcome the challenges of multiple recessions. We want to express our gratitude by giving back to local organizations that benefit people right here.”

Bobbitt’s employee owners selected charities that will be the program’s focus for the duration of 2016. The charities were chosen based on either their impact in the community or an employee’s personal experience. The nonprofits fall into the following categories: children, elderly, environmental, food insecurity, homelessness, "help up" charities, medical, mental health awareness, animal welfare, and veterans.

In 1946, G.E. Bobbitt founded the Raleigh-based construction firm and became one of the first “Butler Builders” for Butler Manufacturing Company. Long before design build became an industry-wide buzzword, G.E. Bobbitt & Associates was coordinating and managing all the services associated with successful building projects – from site selection to civil engineering, architectural design to navigating the municipal planning and approval process, all the way through to the end-product construction – all under the same roof, from the same source.

Today, Bobbitt continues to lead the industry, using the latest architectural, engineering and construction technologies. The company remains among the country’s premiere Butler Builders and strives to deliver maximum customer value. This foundation for excellence has resulted in decades of satisfied customers who receive an unrivaled experience when building their dream. In fact, nearly 75 percent of Bobbitt customers are repeat or direct-referral.

Bobbitt has won numerous construction safety awards and is a three-time winner of Triangle Business Journal’s Fast 50 Award, which recognizes the area’s fastest-growing companies. Other accolades include EDGE Awards for Best Design Build Project and for Environmental Stewardship, as well as a Sir Walter Raleigh Award for Community Appearance, presented for outstanding contributions to the character, environment and appearance of the City of Raleigh.

Beyond awards and local recognition, Bobbitt has also been featured nationally in Fortune, Commercial Real Estate Today, and Metal Construction News, among others.
