Why Halfacre

When choosing a commercial builder, there’s a lot more to it than “sticks and bricks,” as industry insiders like to say. There are many competent builders who can provide decent construction services at a competitive price—but again, that’s only the sticks and bricks. And everyone knows that every building is only as strong as its foundation. You could say the same for every builder.

And that’s where Halfacre Construction towers over the competition—in these core areas that stand as a strong foundation beneath Halfacre Construction: our integrity, expertise, financial stability, community and longevity.


At Halfacre Construction, our reputation for honesty and follow-through is well known throughout the community. While the days of handshake agreements might be past, the team at Halfacre works with those same old-fashioned values that said a person’s word meant something. Just like his father before him, owner Jack Cox carries that integrity both inside and outside the business, such as through his role as a member of a local bank’s board of directors and many other civic commitments. Our community knows by experience that it can trust Jack Cox and Halfacre Construction.


One measure of Halfacre Construction’s expertise is the very landscape of southwest Florida, literally peppered with construction projects built by Halfacre. Owner Jack Cox was raised in the business, learning the trades first hand in the hot Florida sun. Our staff consists of some of the best in the industry—many who have worked together at Halfacre for years. Our internal processes and systems are tried and tested. Our collaborative, integrated relationships with architects and owners mean we maximize every construction dollar spent. Our roster of highly qualified, licensed subcontractors have been hand-picked because of their quality, reliability and integrity. In terms of construction standards, we not only play by the rules—Jack Cox helps enforce the rules as an appointed member of the Probable Cause area of the Construction Industry Licensing Board for the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.


halfacre-bondingWith almost 40 years and nearly three generations of a successful commercial construction business behind us, we’re confident that we’ll still be here tomorrow. In spite of the changing climate of the construction industry, our business remains steady and strong. Whether you’re a repeat customer or a prospective one, you can rest assured that Halfacre Construction has the financial resources to continue building southwest Florida and beyond.


Halfacre Construction is a good neighbor. We live here; we give here; we love it here. Jack Cox and Halfacre Construction are tightly woven into the fabric that makes up southwest Florida. Halfacre donates time and money to children’s and educational charities to improve the quality of life in our area. Customers that choose Halfacre Construction can trust that we will go the extra mile to make a positive impact on our community.


Good businesses last a long time for good reasons: many satisfied customers. Since 1970, Halfacre Construction has been building southwest Florida’s commercial and industrial markets. Nearly a third of our clients are repeat business and some clients have been with us for nearly two decades. We’re not too big that we can’t deliver personalized, customized service; and we’re not too small to handle industry-sized jobs. Our nearly 40-year history with area subcontractors means we know who to call and how to get it done well. Our history and longevity is just one more foundation behind our commitment to excellence as a builder of choice.
