“Columbia has been a great location for Garner Johnson to expand and grow in the Midlands,” said Joe Garner, one of the firm’s principals. “A major portion of my personal construction experience stems from the Columbia area working on the renovation of the South Carolina Statehouse in the late 1990s and the construction of the Matthew J. Perry Federal Courthouse.”

Garner Johnson also has offices in Greenville and Charleston, and plans to expand to Charlotte, N.C. within the next three years. Garner Johnson has done insurance restoration work for thousands of homes and business including Arby’s, Anna’s Linens, Aldi’s, Fleet Feet, Jason’s Deli, Taco Bell and many more. The firm also had performed upfits for Westgate Mall, HTI, the State of South Carolina, The USC Foundation, California Dreaming and Chophouse 47, said Jeff Johnson, the firm’s other principal.
