2022 Sand Dollar Award

NAPLES, Fla. – Surety Construction was recently awarded the 2022 CBIA Sand Dollar Award in the Builder/Remodeler category for the Ridge Lake residential project located in Naples, Florida. This single-family, private residence won in the following seven categories: Best Landscape Design ($9,000,001 – $11,000,000), Best Pool Design ($9,000,001 – $11,000,000), Best Kitchen Design ($9,000,001 – $11,000,000), Best Outdoor Living Area ($9,000,001 – $11,000,000), Best Master Suite ($9,000,001 – $11,000,000), Best Specialty Feature ($50,001-$70,000), and Best Specialty Feature (under $25,000).
The team at Surety Construction takes great pride in remodeling this residential home into a modern, eco-conscious and sustainable living environment.  During the process we had our share of challenges, as the rest of the world, with material shortages, labor shortages, and inflation skyrocketing in the middle of projects. The timeframe of the project took longer than anticipated, however, the finished product was worth the extra effort and slight inconvenience. Each space was well thought out and are revealed in the stunning photographs below.
