  • Brent Sembler, Vice Chairman of The Sembler Company

    Many General Contracting companies promise to deliver, but none have been able to deliver as consistently as Hawkins Construction.  Hawkins has always performed not just in the field, but also with total commitment to the owner from project conception through completion, while maintaining a bottom line focus.  Each department at Hawkins shares this commitment to the owner; and serves the client with integrity and honesty, utilizing sound construction techniques and completion dedication to their needs.

  • James L. Brown, Mayor, Longboat Key, Florida

    On behalf of the Town of Longboat Key I want to commend the Hawkins Construction team responsible for the successful completion of the Longboat Key Publix-Shoppes of Bay Isles project. They exhibited a professional, cooperative spirit throughout the project and addressed issues as soon as they were identified.  They met with Town staff on a regular basis to assure good coordination with utilities, permitting, and landscaping. In short, this was the best managed construction project I have seen in my 40-year career. Our thanks to Hawkins Construction for working pro-actively with our staff for long-anticipated delivery of the Longboat Key Publix-Shoppes of Bay Isles. I'm confident our residents and visitors will enjoy this beautiful, new center for decades to come.

  • Deborah A. Passerini, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries-Suncoast, Inc.

    While Hawkins consistently meets project deadlines and does so within budget, the company also has produced nothing but high quality construction and renovation results.  Attention to detail, resourcefulness and focus on client commitment set Hawkins apart from others in the industry.   It is with pleasure that I, on behalf of Goodwill-Suncoast, highly recommend Hawkins Construction, Inc. to meet your construction and renovation needs.

  • John Reece, General Manager of Ferman Chevrolet

    Leading up to the project we interviewed 5 General Contractors as the organization had three projects to juggle at once, ours being the largest and most complex.  We selected Hawkins for the Tarpon project. I will tell you that they have exceeded our expectations in every way. The logistics of keeping us in business while going through the project were mind boggling.  The Hawkins team stepped in and made it look easy. They went above and beyond the call of duty.  Our organization would certainly reengage the Hawkins team as future projects arise.  Choosing a GC is not a choice to be taken lightly, I couldn't imagine a finer partner than the Hawkins Team.
