“Our experience with BUILD was outstanding. Jay, Jake, and the entire team were professional, hardworking, and extremely helpful. It was a true partnership in every sense. There were no lapses in communication and a go to person, usually Jake, was always on site to answer our many and sometimes annoying questions.

I have managed over 10 office buildouts for Hahn Loeser and few, if any, were as smooth as our Naples buildout. Jay was in the loop on everything, which was very comforting to us.

I 100% recommend BUILD for renovation. You will not be disappointed.”

Commercial Renovations

“We have had the pleasure of working with Jay Howard & BUILD on dozens of projects for the past 9 years. We have repeatedly chosen to hire Jay and BUILD because they understand how to work with us and there is no project too challenging for them.

Most recent, BUILD successfully completed an $11+ million dollar, 60,000+ sf renovation and expansion for us at the heart of our corporate headquarters. With Jay Howard’s leadership, BUILD accomplished all of the goals we established for this multi-phased project. Our needs dictated the schedule be run 20 hours per day 6-7 days per week for over one year and BUILD delivered. Each phase of the project was delivered ahead of schedule and to the highest quality level.

We can, without hesitation, endorse and refer Jay Howard as an outstanding General Contractor.”

“Rob Zella was fabulous! In all my years of remodeling and building homes I have never experienced someone as polite, professional, and willing to please with everything I ask. He is so pleasant and kind in every way. I have cards of his to pass out to people in our building. I would have never recommended any of our previous contractors. Rob Zella and BUILD will be highly recommended by my husband, Ed, and myself.”
