McCrory Construction, South Carolina’s oldest general contractor, announces the promotion of Nichole Kopenhaver to Project Manager. She has more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry, the past eight with McCrory.

She is based in the Columbia office.
“Nichole has clearly demonstrated the leadership traits necessary to be an outstanding project manager – excellent communication skills, the ability to foster a teamwork environment, and the problem-solving skills required to see a project through,” said McCrory President Allen Bridgers. “Her passion for the construction industry and jobsite safety is evident as she strives to deliver project results that consistently exceed owner expectations.”
Kopenhaver served as National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Columbia Chapter #113 President for 2019-2020 and was the chapter’s Career Awareness Committee Chair for more than three years.
