Building Green Since 1987
Tom Haggard and Ray Zbikowski established Gateway Corporation of S.W. Florida, a general contracting company in 1987.
We build quality specialty homes that are diverse in type and style and provide a close relationship to each design and client.
From the onset, we never wanted to repeat the design of a home and as can be seen in our gallery of photos, that's been the case.
In business on the gulf coast of Florida for these many years, has allowed us to build different styles of projects and develop the "Gulf Coast Style" that brings back many of the "Old Florida Home" elements from the past and sometimes merge them with a contemporary element.
Most of our work is though word of mouth referrals from past clients, architect, and designers whose visions we have carefully crafted. Our strength is our relationship with our clients by being careful to always protect their interest and completing their dream homes.
Our clients not only come from Florida, but from all over the U.S. and different countries.
Our efficient record keeping, construction expertise, project management, and our familiarity with a complex construction permitting process associated with coastal construction, sets us apart.
We approach every new project with excitement and enthusiasm. This is an exciting time for both the contractor and the home owner, by making it a pleasant experience, and watching the progress of construction from the ground up to the finishing touches that make your home unique.
