 Sponsor Spotlight

 Many thanks to our Gold Sponsors, Edifice and First Tryon Advisors, for their support of NCAIS.

Edifice, LLCa North Carolina-based general contractor, is proud to help plan and build the structures that train our future generations.

Though we boast a diverse portfolio in all major construction markets, we have completed over six (6) million square feet of educational buildings serving kindergarten classrooms to college campuses. Since 1978, Edifice has built its reputation on a simple philosophy: to attend to the needs of our clients, express concern for our employees’ wellbeing, take care of our business partners, and give back to the community by helping those in need. Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Edifice is consistently ranked as one of North Carolina’s Top 100 privately owned companies by Grant Thornton, LLP. Along with past awards for our philanthropic involvement in the community, Edifice is also listed as a top contractor in publications including ENR Southeast, Business North Carolina, and the Charlotte Business Journal.
