Since 2006, Clear Water has been earning and keeping our clients trust, this has greatly fueled our success.

We compiled a team of the finest tradesmen in the Charleston, South Carolina area, and built long standing relationships with local suppliers and distributors. We have found that our success largely relies on surrounding ourselves with these local tradesmen and businesses.

Our goal is to:

  • Guide our clients through the construction process step by step to minimize stress, and establish a long-term relationship.

Our Experience

He quickly gained notoriety by building prominent vacation homes. One of his clients was the owner of a large commercial construction company and offered Mr. Connell a position, which he accepted in 1995. He then began building commercial retirement centers and gaining immeasurable commercial building experience for the next 10 years.

After building retirement centers in 6 states and 9 cities including, Savannah, Athens, Augusta, Charleston and Myrtle Beach. The draw and beauty of the low country was too great to continue traveling.

Settling in Mount Pleasant SC with his wife and family, Mr. Connell then returned to his roots. Clear Water Construction LLC began building single family quality custom homes for low country residents in South Carolina.

Mr. Connell is also a locally licensed and registered real estate agent, which allows him to help his clients acquire the perfect property on which to build their custom home.
