Build a Foundation


A message from William Gaston and Jay Howard, Principals and Founders of BUILD, LLC

After graduating from the University of Florida’s M.E. Rinker, Sr. School of Building Construction, followed up by years of invaluable experience in the field, we had reached a significant point in our lives when our appetites for risk intersected with our collective construction and business experience. We had a vision. With the help of a booming economy, we knew it was time to start BUILD.

BUILD ‘broke ground’ in 2006. Since that time, BUILD has successfully completed over nine figures worth of projects throughout Florida and Louisiana – all without litigation of any kind. As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we reflect on BUILD’s strength and we are extremely proud of how BUILD has grown into a highly esteemed and top ranked Florida company.

Our gratefulness for all of the top level talent who has chosen to work at BUILD goes unmatched. Thanks to this industry leading team, our respected repeat clients with exceptional vision, and the many topnotch design teams we partner with, BUILD has been awarded multiple Sand Dollar, Summit, and Aurora awards.

BUILD’s commitment to total quality management from pre-construction all the way through warranty administration has paved the way for us to be where we are today. We are looking forward to many more decades of success and continued friendships.

William Gaston and Jay Howard
