BDCSI to Partner in FATVillage Project

Big Dog Construction Services is excited to partner with Kaufman Lynn Construction and The Related Group to build an apartment complex in downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village.  Called the Gallery at FATVillage, the 12-story project was designed to have 150 affordable apartments, 41 market-rate apartments and 4,000 square feet of retail space.

Read more about the project in the Dec. 2-8, 2016 edition of the South Florida Business Journal.

Southwest Ranches Loft Completed

What do you do with “wasted” soaring ceiling space when you want more usable square footage in your home? You create a loft as Big Dog Construction Services did in this Southwest Ranches home. The new loft provided the family with a second floor office/family room. Additionally, the narrow staircase was widened and completely replaced including a new railing.  As an added bonus, the new lower kitchen ceiling now can hold a pot rack.

Check out the before and after photos.



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 overhead. 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

Kirkland House-Palm Beach

This prestigious Worth Avenue address, home to 20 of the highest-end condos on the island, features multi-million dollar residences with views of downtown Palm Beach as well as the ocean. The building is undergoing a major concrete restoration project this summer. Big Dog Construction Services was hired to oversee the construction while many of the owners are away.


Ft. Lauderdale Airport Renovation & Expansion

Next time you are flying in or out of Ft. Lauderdale airport, be on the lookout for the Big Dog Construction Services team. Scattered around the new construction areas you will find a dozen of our carpenters and laborers assisting the Hunt/Moss team in a variety of capacities, including filling in scope work and escorting other subcontractors in restricted areas. We are pleased to have been selected as a CBE/SBE partner on this exciting project.

Parkland Water Damage Restoration

After more than a year of fighting with the insurance company, work is finally under way to repair damage due to flooding in this Parkland home. When complete, the home should be better than it was before!

Southwest Ranches Loft

One of our favorite clients recently purchased a new home in Southwest Ranches. Rather than enjoying the spacious double-high ceiling height in the kitchen, they decided that the space would be better utilized by having a loft on the second floor.

Our project included protecting the existing areas of the home, moving a wall in the laundry room to widen the stairs, adding the loft and then finishing the space with engineered wood flooring.

Stay tuned to check on the progress.
