Why South Florida?

Florida remains a coveted location for market expansion both in the U.S. and for its proximity to Central and South America. Moreover, the population continues to grow, which means more opportunity for residential and industrial builds. Consumer behavior is also shifting and driving demanding for greater access to consumer goods – and access to those goods more quickly and efficiently.

What to expect with your commercial construction project?

Your local team will help establish realistic and achievable timelines and budgets and ensure those deadlines are met as planned. Importantly, they will help navigate some of the more complex and nuanced aspects of building in South Florida, like securing building permits. With 98 municipalities in the collective Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, and each with their own set of rules and codes, nailing down approvals can get tricky.

When to contact a local contractor?

Time is of the essence. Truly. If you’re looking to build in South Florida and are not in the area – it’s imperative that you swiftly find the right team to manage your project. While there is a myriad of variables that go into choosing the right team – the most important ones should be experience and proximity to the project. Not to mention, honest communication.
