“Just want to say thanks to BUILD Carolina for all your help getting the store open and up and running. I know you had to shift some things around to make it work and I really appreciate it.

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. ”

My builder was amazing,” says Ann. “The project manager just got me. He really understood my vision and always found ways to improve upon my ideas and bring them to life.”  “This home offers so many different experiences,” states homeowner and ESPN celebrity Colin Cowherd. “We’ve created a place where we can entertain and let loose with our friends, as well as spend quality time with our family.”

“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.

BUILD recently 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 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.”

“We weren’t actually planning on you completing the home in as quick of a time frame as you did. We were caught a little off guard with our furniture delivery. ”

“I want to thank you for doing such a great job on the build out of my restaurant. The best reason to work with BUILD LLC is the fairness and ethical standards that the principal partners bring to the project. Being inexperienced in this aspect of restaurants, I was skeptical of making mistakes that would cost me time and money during construction. I correctly assessed early on in the bid process that your company would take a personal interest in the project to assure that quality, timely work was performed and even more important to me I knew I had someone on my side.

Fair and conscientious are great adjectives to describe your company.”

“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’ve never recommended any of our previous contractors. Rob Zella and BUILD will be highly recommended by my husband Ed and myself.

“We really enjoyed working with you and your office. You made things run real smooth. We hope to build our own building someday and will for sure give you a call and recommend you to others in town.”

“Thank you very much for everything. You made the build out process a pleasure. I will definitely recommend BUILD to everyone I know.

“I just wanted to thank you and all of your staff and “subs’ for the great work in building out my office, which I enjoy greatly.  It’s a pleasure to know that true professionals still exist.

I can describe the job that BUILD completed for us in one word – MIRACULOUS!  I must tell you that I am very impressed at your team’s ability to deliver on time. Our project initially required a 14-week schedule. In fact, other contractors told us that it couldn’t happen…but your team stepped up to the plate; you even value engineered as requested, and made it happen in only 9, so we could keep the same move-in date!

You have set yourself apart from the others and I am grateful that we chose you. I now know why BUILD has found success – as you are indeed “stacked with winners”.”

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to express the extreme appreciation and satisfaction from our members, board of directors and the management team of Kelly Greens Golf & Country Club for the tremendous accomplishment of remodeling our clubhouse by BUILD LLC.

It seems like we have been building projects here steadily for the past 5 years and there is a few more that I would like to do before retiring. I am certain that when the next project arrives, BUILD LLC will be around to help us.”

“It has most certainly been my pleasure working with you during the construction of our office. From the onset of the construction process, you have demonstrated superb professionalism and commitment to detail as well as extending exemplary customer service skills. I truly appreciated the efforts to meet the certificate of occupancy deadline that I provided to you; as you know, the entire office move was dependent upon achieving the CO. After we occupied the office space, your team did everything possible to ensure our satisfaction with the build-out.

As I have conveyed to you both, the physicians, staff and patients are extremely pleased with the new office of Anchor Pulmonary/Critical Care/Sleep Medicine. I thank you for the excellence with which you approached our project. It is most definitely reflected in the final product.”

Deborah Auclair, Division Manager
Anchor Health Centers


“We absolutely love our new office and everything is coming together nicely. There is so much to attend to every day and our superintendent is always willing to listen to our concerns or questions. He has worked many long days and nights; Saturday and Sundays helping us reach our goal and we are really excited about the completion of our new office.”

“I have heard in the past, nightmares about how the construction industry works and I am happy to say that from the minute we had our first meeting with Jay Howard and Bill Gaston, I have been very pleased with the quality of service your company provides. Your staff has consistently made extra efforts to assist me in completing our projects on time.”

“We expanded and remodeled our restaurant, we doubled the existing space and added a casual lounge. I believe that our project could not have been as successfully completed without having BUILD LLC as our General Contractor.

I have found Mr. William Gaston to be a very professional and competent individual. His greatest strengths, in my opinion, are his values and ethics. He is also very organized and efficient. His approach to problem solving is unusual in today’s market. He goes to extraordinary effort to ensure client satisfaction. He focuses on fixing the problem and not the blame. But perhaps the thing about him that I admire most is: He does what he says he will do when he says he will do it.

I have no reservation about recommending BUILD LLC.”
