Halfacre Construction Company is the area's oldest, most established, and locally owned and operated private commercial construction company. Centered on foundational strengths of family values and superior professionalism, the commercial and industrial construction firm delivers projects on time, within budget, with the utmost integrity and with the expertise and financial strength needed for success. The firm is run by president and CEO Jack Cox, a long-standing member of the Sarasota community, and partners Reed Giasson and Tom Rees, who have been with Halfacre for over 20 years, respectively.
When Jack Cox took the helm in 1999, he brought the same shared vision of community stewardship, bond of a common trade and fine workmanship as his father, John, who led the firm before him.
With four decades of experience under its belt and projects that can be found in an eight-county area in Florida, Halfacre Construction Company has created millions of square feet of successful projects, including notable projects like the huge administration and manufacturing building now known as PGT Industries in Nokomis. In 1997, Halfacre built the first commercial building in the now thriving Lakewood Ranch when the 85,000 square-foot Teleflex Inc. was erected. The company has also built over 1,000,000 square feet in Port Manatee, the fastest growing port in Florida reaching markets across the globe.
Halfacre Construction also offers its expertise as a green building provider with the resources available to build viable, effective alternatives to reduce energy consumption and preserve natural resources. The firm’s staff includes U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) certified professionals who have demonstrated proficiency in green building practices and who possess a thorough grasp of the LEED Green Building Rating System.
With a legacy of community behind them and Florida’s future before them, the Halfacre Construction family continues to stand strong as a premier builder in southwest Florida for many years to come.
