Phil Goodwin is driven by a wholehearted passion for finely architected homes. Bridging the gap between architect and builder, he understands that expressing the architect’s vision of a masterfully orchestrated home depends on every single detail of construction. He is a master of details, and he believes that crafting a truly elegant and timeless home demands an extraordinary level of care in all things revealed, as well as all things hidden. He is a hands-on builder and is intimately involved with each and every one of the limited number of projects his company crafts each year.
His close relationship with the architectural community evokes the concept of the Master Builder, an important role that has all but vanished. He understands and respects the principles of classical architectural design and works harmoniously with architects during the construction process. He is an active member of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, and he serves on the board of the North Carolina Chapter. He frequently travels to study sites of architectural significance which have included the major cities and rural areas of England, France, Spain, and Canada.
He understands the importance of education and frequently takes advantage of continuing education opportunities. He is an active member of the Homebuilder’s Association of Charlotte, and he has earned an Accredited Builder Certification through the North Carolina Builder’s Institute. He holds B.S and M.S. degrees in Physics and Nuclear Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and he also holds a North Carolina Professional Engineering license.
Supportive of historic preservation and rehabilitation efforts, Phil is a member of Preservation North Carolina and the Charlotte Museum of History, both non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting homes, buildings, and landscapes important to the heritage of North Carolina.
Committed to green building principles, Phil has earned the Certified Green Professional Designation sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders. He understands the science of construction and embraces new technology that is rapidly changing the construction industry to greatly improve energy efficiency, indoor air quality, water efficiency, and environmental impact.
