FaverGray Celebrates 16 Years of Service

FaverGray, a national general contractor headquartered in Jacksonville, is proudly celebrating 16 years of business this year. Since FaverGray’s inception, our specialized team has demonstrated the value of construction management using innovation and passion and has drastically positioned the multi-family, student, and senior living divisions to thrive.

Then to Now

Built on a foundation of integrity, trust, and commitment, FaverGray was founded by James Gray and Keith Faver in 2005. These two general contracting professionals began their journey with the goal to not only build a legacy as the leading general contractor in its core markets, but to optimally serve their clients and build better than ever before. Part of that was the concept of being flexible, and implementing modern processes and technologies as they shift through time. However, it also meant adapting to meet contracting demands without losing sight of the brand values itself.

“One thing that hasn’t changed over the last 16 years is our company values. Every project, meeting, and decision we have ever made is driven by transparency, success, responsiveness, partnership, innovation, and a supportive culture.” – Keith Faver, President.

Fast forward to today, FaverGray has completed over 100 projects on-time and within budget across 15 states for all three of their specialized divisions: multi-family, student, and senior living. FaverGray has been recognized as an Accredited Quality Contractor and reached Diamond Level Safety Rankings with The Associated Builders and Contractors. Some of the more recent accolades include leading a 320-unit luxury multi-family development in Panama City Beach and constructing a 225,951 square foot, 126-unit, 486-bed student housing community near the University of South Carolina. FaverGray’s unparalleled allegiance to serving their clients and becoming a cornerstone benchmark within general contracting has earned them a spot on the Jacksonville Business Journal’s Top General Contractor List for the last several years.

Giving Back

Though FaverGray takes pride in the construction aspect of building communities, they never once neglected their community involvement devotions. Giving back, making lasting impressions, and improving others’ lives even beyond their services is a significant value for them. For example, in October of 2020, FaverGray was named Jacksonville Business Journal’s Most Philanthropic Company for their continuous community dedications. From their annual Artscpade with Patrons of the Hearts to the Hope Town Rising Bahamas Relief, they donate their talent, time, and treasures with the underlying strive to make a real, positive difference.

Thank You

“Our commitment to our customers and our ever-evolving craft has been demonstrated by our steady growth. Above all else, our underlying success is really about our strong team of people. Today, our team is the key to our successful future, and I am eternally grateful for their contributions.” – James Gray, CEO.

Overall, James and Keith thank every single one of their team members, the people who support them, and take pride in having a robust team that comes together to build a brighter future that everyone can benefit from. In the end, nothing makes FaverGray happier than being able to raise the general contractor bar with their devoted team, bettering their community as a whole, and are excited to leverage their efforts to make the next 16 years even better than the last.

Cheers to 16 years, and cheers to many more!
