Timuquana Country Club
We have been working with Elkins since 2002, and I can honestly say that Elkins is simply the best contractor I have ever worked with. Our projects not only deal with everyday construction issues, but involve working with our clients. The average age of our residents is 80 years old, and on every project constructed by Elkins, they have treated each resident as if they were their own family member. This type of attitude separates Elkins from others.
Senior Vice President of Development
