Avatar Construction INC, a full-service construction company headquartered in Tampa, is celebrating its 37th anniversary.
President, Jay Patel, founded the company in 1982, offering general contracting for residential customers and shortly after added construction management and design-build solutions for custom houses, health care, institutional and commercial clients.
“The previous 37 years have seen continuous growth for Avatar Construction INC in Tampa, and our operations staff are on target for another fantastic season,” Patel said in a statement.
“We’re continuing to construct a huge team to support our expansion in the region and look forward to shaping the Tampa landscape for decades to come.”
The company has a corporate office in Tampa and is experiencing rapid expansion across Florida. Over the past 37 years, Avatar has completed projects worth hundreds of millions of dollars for a vast number of developers, builders, owners and general contractors.
Current projects include constructing a 40,000-sq. ft., four-story home in Surya Estates – a 60-million-dollar project and the largest home in South Florida.
The business employs more than 100 professional contractors and construction employees and Jay Patel is a state-certified professional engineer, special inspector (License #2038), home inspector, general contractor and roofing contractor.
He’s also been designated as an Accredited Neutral Evaluator for all 65 counties in Florida for the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process for sinkhole claims with the State of Florida, Department of Financial Services.
