I did not wake up one morning thinking, “I want to run a construction company one day!” It happened organically.

All that shaped how I work today.

I always had a summer job with my dad, sweeping floors and working as a laborer on job sites. His ethics, hard work, honesty, and commitment to ensuring that clients are always completely satisfied—all that shaped how I work today.

After my first year of college, Dad started to build a home for himself in Harbor Isles. I decided to work as a laborer on that project, on the job from the day the bulldozer cleared the land until the day the lights were turned on. That night before Dad moved in, I slept in the home and thought, “This has been the most rewarding experience!”

When a family friend planned to build a home very close to my dad’s place, Dad suggested to the friend, “Josh could build your home. I will keep an eye on things when I get home every night.” So, I supervised the construction from start to finish. I have to give credit to the owner for not insisting on an older, more experienced supervisor—but he got someone who worked hard! Dad observed, “It was a multi-million dollar project! A big accomplishment for a 22‑year‑old.”

This has been the most rewarding experience!

I worked on other jobs as they came up. Another superintendent took me under his wing for a few years and taught me a lot about construction. To learn core trades like drywalling, framing, roofing, and carpentry, I worked closely with several key subcontractors, absorbing the fundamentals of each discipline.

Then we took on a 30,000-square-foot intracoastal-front home in Admirals Cove that took three and a half years to build, with a budget close to $30 million. Dad hired a superintendent who had just finished a large project in Palm Beach, and I worked with him. Dad said to me, “This is going to be your Doctorate in Construction.” And he was right. That project introduced us to a new level of designers, vendors, and subcontractors. The level of detail and quality of materials were outstanding. It is one of the most spectacular homes we have ever built, and the owners are super happy with it.

Simultaneously, we had four other projects under way—a large home in West Jupiter, and three homes in Palm Beach. As a result of the logistical requirements of those projects, we developed a different project management system, and I became more of a manager than a field superintendent, visiting each job site regularly. Even as a manager, though, my hands-on attitude remains. Everyone who works on the project knows I won’t—and don’t—ask them to do anything I’m not willing to do myself.
This is going to be your Doctorate in Construction.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family. I like to play the guitar and sing.

I have a great appreciation for what my father and uncle created and have, essentially, handed to Kevin and me. It’s now on us to preserve and strengthen that legacy for the next generation.
