Or are you looking to build a home? We have the architectural know-how and the desires to make your dream home a reality! Sit down with Chris and decide who’s room goes where, how many tables to have at your outdoor hotel pool bar, or which direction your office window will face to see that beautiful Florida Keys view. This is your construction, we’re here to help as much or as little you need.

Building Permits for Key West Construction or Waterfront Development in the Keys

Building within the different zones of the Keys requires deft navigation through red tape and permitting offices.  Our experience with the Key West building department and the latest hurricane, fire, flood and building codes means fewer headaches and delays in the building process while we’re here, and a safe, secure home or business when we’re gone.

Green Construction & Eco-Friendly Homes

On our construction projects, we take green construction practices seriously. We love and greatly value the beautiful environment that makes up the Florida Keys—this is our home—and we do everything we can to protect it when we work.

Beyond the way we build, we strive for what we build to be environmentally friendly. We do our best to minimize both your carbon footprint and your energy bills.  This is mostly through ensuring effective and efficient building practices combined with intelligent planning and engineering, and the use of energy saving devices and fixtures.

Commercial Construction

Did we mention how well-rounded our team is?

We have the equipment, know-how and man power for a job of any size. Consider us for your commercial development needs. From hospitality to retail, restaurants to museums, Fogarty Builders of the Keys can build it all!



We highly recommend Fogarty Builders for any home construction projects. We had four bathrooms redone and found the work to be very high quality. Chris is honest, dependable and sure to make the job is done right.
