In 1989 while working full time he started working toward his second degree from the University of North Florida. In 1992 he graduated with a degree in Construction Management. “It was during this time that I learned the true meaning of organization and planning. During the early 90’s not everyone had a cell phone. Making sure that everything was going according to schedule on the jobs while going class was a lot of work.” Mike passed his State Building Contractor’s exam in December of 1994.
Mike was promoted to Vice President of the Company in 1990. In 1997 Mike became a partner with his father Vernon in the family business. In 2002 Mike was blessed to become the third generation to own the business. Mike has served as the President of the Company since then.
Mike has enjoyed working with the same clients that trusted his Grandfather and Father with their construction projects. Mike has also worked hard to expand the business and the clients that we serve. That growth is based on the same principles of quality workmanship, hard work, and trust. “I was very lucky to have learned from Grandfather and more importantly my Father about doing things the right way.”
