Our Company

Our specialty: No surprises

Headquartered in Tampa for more than 25 years, Ed Taylor Construction has built or renovated thousands of commercial structures for top companies in west-central Florida and around the country accounting for well over $750 million worth of construction. We take pride in the way we build partnerships, manage the construction process, and maximize client dollars for clients of all sizes.

Previously known as Ed Taylor Construction South, the company was founded as the Florida branch of then-Atlanta-based Ed Taylor Construction. With the Atlanta branch no longer operational, Tampa’s Ed Taylor Construction dropped the “South” from the name.

Using a robust in-house computer network, we have the historical and market information we need to deliver accurate price quotes on projects. We use our team members’ deep experience, combined with the excellent work of our longstanding network of subcontractors, to deliver a high-quality facility or renovation.

Key differentiators

  • Deep experience; team members average 10-plus years at Ed Taylor.

Our Mission
