As a Certified General Contractor, Michael has been involved in construction since 1970, starting at the bottom and quickly moving to be a Lead Carpenter, then Superintendent. He has been involved with a variety of projects, including upscale custom homes, fast-paced residential, restaurants, churches, multi-story condominiums, and commercial.
In 1984, Mike obtained his Certified General Contractor's License for the State of Florida, following attendance at both community college and Allstate Construction College. His construction-related courses also included interior design, project management, and blueprint reading.
Mike worked in Dade County following Hurricane Andrew where, as an approved Special Inspector, he certified all types of structural and roofing installations. He also did structural damage assessment reporting for all types of buildings.
In the late 1980s, Mike was president of his own company, Shell Contractors of the Palm Beaches. Some highlights of that endeavor were building a multi-purpose building for the Advent Lutheran Church, an office/warehouse for Sun Flooring and several large custom homes that were delivered turnkey to the owners.
Mike's attention to detail was recognized and he was hired by Lennar Homes where he spent three years as a Superintendent in the Boca Isles Communities. He also completed approximately 300 homes at the Sanctuary, Enclave and Reserve. Mike's job description included scheduling all trades from lot preparation to homeowner move-in, approval of all payments to subcontractors, a rigid quality control program for all trades, dealing directly with the homeowners at walkthroughs and resolving any items until sign-off and move-in, as well as scheduling all inspections. He was responsible for maintaining documentation for each house and was Lead Superintendent over three assistants.
Mike's diversified construction and project field experience makes him a welcome addition to Zimmer Construction Consultants and is consistent with our goal to provide our clients with high quality technical services.
