In 1997, D&S Builders, LLC, was started and has steadily grown to become one of the area’s premier hospitality contractors. The company motto was and is, “The road to success is always under construction". Alex & Mary Davis, along with the belated Howard Sexton, founded D&S Builders with the idea that completing projects in a timely manner while building lasting relationships with the owners would be the foundation to a successful business; and this business model has served them well over the last two and a half decades.
“We look at a job and see if it makes sense and fits within the dynamics of our company and works with our schedule and load. There’s a whole checklist we go through to make sure that the work makes sense for us. We do add to the client base, but we’re not going to be that contractor who takes on more than we can do.”
" I have been involved in the development of this hotel since its conception and have been on the job site since the beginning of construction. No matter the problem, I was impressed at the pinpoint execution and delivery of the solution each and every time. The final product exceeds my initial expectations, and we now have a product that is guaranteed to lead every category of its market segment. Everyone is raving about the new Courtyard by Marriott - Gatlinburg Downtown. D&S Builders have outdone themselves. "
