GBI was founded by president and namesake, Joe Grainda, one of the region’s most experienced and peer-respected homebuilders in the Carolinas.
Joe’s career in construction spans thirty years starting in the field as a young carpenter and cabinet-maker. His talents culminated in being promoted to the executive branch of one of the nation’s largest public homebuilding corporations. For two decades, he presided over the operations management of 350 employees and the construction of 7,000 homes nationwide.
Joe’s corporate leadership capabilities have led him to attract highly qualified executives and managers to his boutique construction business. He initially focused on custom homebuilding on waterfront properties in the Lake Norman community, where he settled with his family.
Over the last five years, the GBI team’s steadfast proficiency in construction management has spread into commercial building, multi-home development, build-outs, renovations, for sale makeovers and fire restoration.
