Blue Horizon Construction


Navigating the Unique Challenges of Coastal Construction

Coastal construction in southwest Florida comes with a set of challenges demanding both thorough expertise and adaptability. Our region’s unique environmental factors require meticulous planning and specialized techniques to ensure structures are beautiful, durable and harmonious with local surroundings. When undertaking any new custom home or remodel project, Blue Horizon Construction brings over 40 years of local expertise and a proven construction process including adequate permitting, environmental considerations, detailed timelines and more.

Flood risk is one of the most significant facets of pre-construction planning, especially with the area’s susceptibility to hurricanes and an overall flat terrain. Rising sea levels and storm surges necessitate incorporating advanced drainage systems and elevated foundations. The Blue Horizon team always accounts for thorough site assessments to identify flood zones and plan accordingly, safeguarding properties from water damage.

Hurricane resilience is another crucial aspect of Blue Horizon’s initial planning phase. The threat of hurricanes demands the use of robust building materials and techniques such as impact-resistant windows, reinforced roofs and hurricane straps. Adhering to stringent building codes and regulations is vital to create homes capable of withstanding powerful storms. Having felt the effects of a powerful storm and confronted the complexity of rebuilding and restoring, our experience provides homeowners with peace of mind.

Outside of storms, Southwest Florida is also known for its various protected species, such as burrowing owls and gopher tortoises. Blue Horizon collaborates closely with environmental experts to conduct wildlife surveys and implement mitigation measures. On occasion, these efforts impact construction timelines and methods.

Navigating the regulatory landscape is another facet of our coastal construction process. Stringent environmental and building regulations protect delicate coastal ecosystems. At Blue Horizon, regulatory compliance is non-negotiable, and securing necessary permits and approvals ensures construction projects meet all legal requirements while minimizing environmental impact.

From planning and pre-construction through to completion, Blue Horizon Construction places great emphasis on ensuring the region’s special characteristics are protected and embraced. It is this approach that results in beautiful luxury homes for our clients, as well as continued protection for the area’s most precious species.
