The Florida Construction Industry Loses a Giant

The Florida construction industry lost a major pioneer this past Tuesday with the unfortunate passing of James Pirtle, Sr., founder of one of our most respected general contracting firms, Pirtle Construction.  As referenced in the Sun-Sentinel article, Pirtle Construction built several hundred Florida projects under his watch, including some of the most important and iconic buildings around.  The company will continue under the qualified direction of Mike Geary, who has been running affairs there for several years, so no doubt the company remains in good hands.  Nevertheless, I am saddened by the loss and send fond wishes to the good folks at Pirtle during this difficult time.
