Over 35 years in construction has produced countless accolades for Dave, and now for Big Dog Construction Services. Below is a sampling.

Wow, Rhonda, what a productive and great day here today! Thank you! Everyone was on time, thorough, and efficient. Wonderful teamwork! Tom was excellent as was Korban and the plumbers. Ricardo, bless him, magically cleaned up our daughter’s bathtub. What a difference a few days make! Only problem is that our parrot, Rosie, is now in love with Tom and is still whistling for him. Even though a lot if it was hard for our autistic daughter, everyone was taking care to accommodate her special needs. That is heartwarming and appreciated very much by us., Maureen and Javier Reyes, Coral Springs

New loft built by Big Dog Construction Services — the workpersonship is spot on. They use top quality subs. Who clean up every day. We lived in our house and cooked every morning and night while they added a ceiling to my kitchen with the floor in the loft over ahead. They removed our stairs and put in new safer ones too. Also relocated the pantry and A/C. Thanks Dave, Rhonda, Joe and crew!, Lori Parrish, Southwest Ranches

We’ve been working with Dave and Rhonda from Big Dog Construction Services for most of the Southwest Airlines project at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport. They provide semi-skilled and skilled workers for various general trades work including clean-up, escort for unbadged workers and support for work back charged to other subcontractors.  They performed admirably, despite the inevitable last minute emergencies and “curve balls” thrown at them. Rhonda has been especially organized providing the manpower and documentation necessary to keep things moving.  We look forward to working with the Big Dog team again soon!, Jack Newgent,  Cost Control Manager, AECOM/Hunt

I worked with Dave Rosenof and Big Dog Construction Services during the renovation and concrete restoration project at Kirkland House – 100 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach.  While Dave was originally hired by a third party to help oversee the contractors doing the work, we worked extremely well together ensuring the quality and efficiency of the work while working around some of the highest level of finishes around.  Dave offered great suggestions regarding costing, contract issues and constructability.  I look forward to the prospect of working together soon., Elaine Gunnoe, Manager, Kirkland House

We look forward to working with Big Dog Construction Services as our CBE/SBE partner on the new FAT Village Affordable House Project in Fort Lauderdale.  We are confident that Kaufman Lynn’s experience in this market combined with Dave’s skills and know will ensure a successful project for all the stakeholders!, Ryan Reiter, Director of Government Relations, Kaufman Lynn Construction

When I finally decided to renovate my kitchen, I was very fortunate to contract with a general contractor with the unlikely name of Big Dog.  Big Dog made the entire five-week renovation process painless.  Their professional staff defied all the perceived norms—they arrived on time, met all the deadlines, used highly skilled sub-contractors, left the building site clean at the end of the day, and ultimately created a final product that exceeded my expectations.  Thanks to the team at Big Dog I now have a beautiful 21st century kitchen.

I would recommend Big Dog Construction Services to anyone who wants quality work done by highly skilled professionals who deal with the micro and macro issues of construction.  

An essential member of the construction team was the project manager on my job, Rhonda Rosenof.  She is knowledgeable, accessible, available for consultation 24x7 and is the ultimate professional.,  Shelly Spivack, Hollywood

I have had the pleasure to work with Big Dog Construction twice so far, and each time they have proven to be both knowledgeable and professional to the highest degree. David and Rhonda do not only make themselves available to address any questions or concerns, but also take the time to address them thoughtfully and thoroughly. Their work is spectacular due in no small part to a detail oriented team. I will be recommending Big Dog Construction in the future., John Williams, Owner's Representative

I came across Big Dog Construction Services after seeing their quality work at the Marina Offices on Williams Island, Aventura.

I met David a few days later and realized immediately what a knowledgeable and experienced professional he was, and that he was going to be a great fit for a new project I was going to start two months later. By the end of our meeting, I realized that the GC that was hired for my current project with the same client had already caused many serious setbacks that impacted the permits, timeline and ultimately my reputation!

David and Rhonda visited the site of the current project the very next day, on a late Friday night. They came prepared with a scope of work and schedules that they had drafted in less than 24 hours. I was so impressed by their professionalism that I had resorted to a move every designer tries to avoid—I terminated the contract with the GC on the current project a month before its scheduled completion. In one day, I fired one GC and hired BDCSI for what would ultimately be two projects.

After week one, I knew I found the right company and that I was going to be in good hands. It wasn’t just their quality of work, attention to details, experience and problem solving, but especially the concern and care for the site at any moment of the day. My reputation with that client was saved because of the Big Dog team.

David often guides me through situations where I need assistance in finding solutions, always staying calm and patient. He makes himself available regardless of weekends or holidays, and he is first to respond in a emergency situation.

Nine months after we met, and just weeks from completing the second project with Big Dog, I can’t say enough how grateful I am for everything Big Dog has done for my clients, my projects and myself. I couldn’t have delivered the beautiful and perfectly crafted work that I wanted for my clients if it hadn’t been for the quality of work Big Dog stands for every single time.

I am excited at all that we have achieved together and for my client, and looking forward to working with the Big Dog Family on many projects to come., Bianca Boie, Bianca Boie Interiors

Big Dog is a big deal - the real deal! They exceeded my expectations in identifying and repairing a complicated ceiling leak without a hint of any work having been done. The job required two stories of scaffolding, removing my eight layer Art Deco chandelier and putting it all back together flawlessly.  Dave and the Big Dog crew did a wonderful job for me!  Everyone involved was professional, neat and a pleasure to have in my home. What a great company - old fashioned work ethic with reliable pros! Thanks for a job well done. I'm a fan. I highly recommend them for projects big or small., Sandy Baker, Ft. Lauderdale

      I have known David Rosenof professionally and personally since January 1998 when I represented SMS as the Assistant General Manager of what is now the BB&T Center. David served as Project Manager for the general contractor. For the last nine months of construction and the following two years of operation we were in frequent contact about the operator’s perspectives and needs. David was genuinely interested in understanding those operational needs and where possible making sure they were satisfied.

      When I was sent to Houston as the Director of Operations for what is now NRA Stadium, Convention Center, Arena and Astrodome, David always answered my calls for expert advice and assistance on construction and renovation projects.

      After being appointed Director of Operations of the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center I continued to rely on David for that same expert advice and assistance for over 10 years because I knew I could rely on his extensive construction knowledge involving large projects, project planning and management experience, understanding of arena and convention center operational considerations and unquestioned personal and professional integrity.

      I am pleased to recommend David Rosenof and Big Dog Construction Services for any project that requires the skills and qualities described above.  Jerry Braud, Former Director of Operations, Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center

We have now had Big Dog Construction Services out to do a third project at our home and we were just as impressed with their work as we were on the previous jobs.  Everyone on their team has been professional, knowledgeable, and courteous and the quality of their work has been excellent.  We would not hesitate to recommend Dave and Rhonda to any of our friends or clients., Michael Agnoli, Partner and Director of Design, Robert Swedroe, Architects & Planners, AIA, PA

We couldn’t be happier with our new Dockmaster’s Office at the Williams Island Marina!  Dave and Big Dog Construction Services have been a pleasure to deal with.  Through the various changes and inevitable issues in any construction project, Dave always kept his “eye on the prize” and delivered an exceptional product.  I highly recommend Dave and his team., Scott Huizenga, Owner, Williams Island Marina

Big Dog Construction Services is the perfect company to work with.  They scheduled the estimate within days of my first call, had the contract out to me shortly after and were very nice about my counter proposals and revisions.  The crew arrived on time the day they were scheduled and worked efficiently during the entire project.  They were very good at picking up all the scraps, nails, etc. and my home never looked as if it were in the midst of construction.  One small spot was overlooked after I had signed off for the completion of the project and the crew was back out the day after I called about it to take care of it--now that's truly service! I will be calling on their services again! Natalie Bigio, Lighthouse Point

What sets David apart from (and above) other contractors I have used is that he is not only skilled, but also unfailingly professional and personable.

I enthusiastically recommend Big Dog Construction Services and look forward to working with them again in the future., Evan Nierman, Founder, Red Banyan Group
