A lot of the work we do at Halfacre Construction Company is incredibly rewarding. Whether it’s creating custom buildings for small business owners, governmental agencies or large warehousing projects, what sets our firm apart is our dedicated team. They are devoted to creating the ultimate customer experience while building quality projects on time and on budget. There are particular projects, however, that our team would tell you are the most fulfilling to work on. Those are the projects we execute for public and private schools. With close to $100 million in school projects under our belts – encompassing 921 separate jobs spanning eight school districts from Hillsborough County to Miami-Dade and most places in between – we’ve learned a thing or two about this scope of work.
