Don Warren to Lead Omega Construction’s Newly Established Upstate (SC) Division 


Greenville, S.C. – October 5, 2022: Omega Construction, one of the Southeast’s leading general contracting firms, has tapped industry veteran Don Warren, FDBIA, to lead their newly established, full-service Upstate South Carolina operation. Warren joins Upstate-based John Fordree, Business Development, who joined Omega in April 2022.

“Omega Construction is opening a permanent Upstate Division in Greenville to serve our current and new customers in the manufacturing, industrial/distribution, and commercial markets – and we are excited to welcome Don to the Omega team. By the end of 2022, we expect to have three projects totaling more than $50 million under construction out of our new Upstate location,” said J. Barry Hennings, P.E., President & CEO of Omega Construction. 

Warren has a 30-year legacy of successful design-build project delivery throughout the Southeast. He is one of the five founders that launched the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) in 1993 – and the only one from the Carolinas. In 2002, Warren was the first in the Carolinas – and one of the first in the nation – to become certified as a Design-Build Professional by DBIA.  Sixteen years later, Warren was the only nominee from the Carolinas to be inducted into the Inaugural Class of DBIA Certified Fellows. He currently serves as a national DBIA Instructor.

Warren graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering – Construction option. He is a licensed General Contractor in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia. Warren is a past board member of the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and has been a member of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) National Roster of Neutrals since 2006.
