Garbutt Named 2019 Preservation Honoree

Garbutt Construction Company founder and CEO, Charlie Garbutt, recently attended The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation’s 35th Annual Preservation Gala, held at the Biltmore Hotel in Atlanta, where he was one of four 2019 Preservation Gala Honorees to be recognized for their extraordinary preservation efforts and achievements.

A passionate preservationist, Charlie Garbutt identified saving historic properties as one of his company’s top priorities, making Garbutt Construction one of the state’s top and most sought-after contractors for rehabilitation and restoration work. Having received more than nineteen Georgia Trust Preservation Awards, Garbutt Construction is notable for completing many staple preservation projects across the state. Among these recognitions includes two, coveted Marguerite Williams Awards for the restoration of Hardman Farm in Sautee, Georgia, and The Old Governor’s Mansion restoration in Milledgeville, Georgia.

The Georgia Trust held its first ‘Preservation Ball’ in 1984 and have continued to host this highly anticipated event annually ever since. Proceeds from the Gala go directly to the Georgia Trust’s mission to reuse, reinvest, and revitalize Georgia’s historic places.
