Sarasota Commercial Construction
Enjoy the Experience.

Value, quality, budget and timeliness are fundamental to the success of your business. At Nautilus, we understand the value of creating fluid systems in order to achieve a predictable, positive outcome with each project.

Our decades of luxury home building have taught us how to manage the most complex projects by breaking them down into practical, short-term goals set to a defined timeline. This experience with luxury homes also enhances our commercial projects by exercising our design eye and concierge level of service.

When you choose Nautilus Homes, you work with a partner who is invested in bringing your vision to life. We believe in maximizing the client experience by giving accurate expectations and staying accountable for every aspect along the way. This efficient, systematic approach is designed to give you peace of mind, to anticipate any construction challenges that may arise, and to reduce your downtime, so you can do what you do best – run your business.

What to Expect.
Commercial Construction Timeline

The following is a basic outline of how your commercial project will flow – from conception to completion and beyond:

Initial Meeting (1 day)
We are introduced to your project,
vision and expectations, and
learn more about your goals
by using our in-depth questionnaire.

Meeting Follow Up (5 days)
We review and record our understandings
into a consolidated set of meeting notes by
space/scope, and create a rough budget
estimate range.

Design (30-40 days)
If the rough estimate is accepted, we begin
design services with a licensed architect and
licensed interior designer (if applicable).
We review the meeting notes with the team
and meet on-site with you and the team to
go over idea images and discuss details.
We work hand in hand with the team to keep
an ongoing eye on cost and value.

Pricing/Permitting (25 Days)
Once the plans are ready for permit, we submit
them and start the final pricing. During the pricing
process we work to discover cost-saving alternatives
to present at our pricing presentation meeting with
the team. Once we have finalized the selections and
reviewed the pricing, we draw up a primary contract
and provide a daily schedule to completion.

Construction
With pricing and selections are completed,
it is our time to shine. Sit back and enjoy the
progress. We keep you posted via our online
portal, where you can view schedule updates,
see weekly photo reports and let us know of
anything you would like to change.

Pre-drywall Walk
We always take the time to walk through the project
with you before we start drywall, so we can capture
any last-minute alterations before we close up the
walls. As construction progresses, we continue our
monthly jobsite walks to ensure everything is running
smoothly and to our standards.

Close Out
After we do our preliminary cleaning, we do a punch
walk with you to determine anything that we may have
missed. We leave one week in our schedule to address
any punch items in order to make sure that we have
plenty of time to complete the project before you
move in.

Turnover
Once our punch list is completed and we have passed
our final inspections, we provide our final billing,
including a reconciliation of any allowance accounts.
We also provide any pertinent as-built drawings, and
a list of all of the sub-contractors that performed on
your project with their contact information, warranty
documentation and a thumb drive of during-
construction photos in an as-built tote.

Warranty
We are always here for our clients. We are a
second-generation Sarasota contractor who
understands that our reputation is always on
the line. Our clients are our best salespeople.

About a year ago, my husband and I decided that we would start shopping around for commercial real estate for our business. We went back and forth between buying something already completed versus designeding something from scratch and truly making it our own. Reluctantly, I agree to the latter knowing that it would come with a lot of more work and stress. We started the process of interviewing contractors for our business and instantly knew that we were going to go with Ryan Perrone of Nautilus Homes. We could tell that his vision aligned with ours. He was honest, ethical, and completely respected our opinions while providing his own professional insight and direction.

Ryan did a magnificent job of aligning us with an architect that followed our lead. There are no words to describe Ryan’s attention to detail. He will not settle for medicore and expects nothing but excellence from his subcontractors. I joke that his eyes are like a laster level and a measuring tape! If an electrical outlet is 0.25 inch off center, rest assured, he is having it moved.

Ryan’s cool, calm and laid-back personality is very comforting when going through an extensive build out. However, I also knew he had our back every step of the wa and would not tolerate any short cuts or missed deadlines.

In regards to the final product, I could not be prouder of our new office space. It is absolutely perfect. Ryan listened and facilitated making our vision into a gorgeous reality.  I highly recommend Ryan Perrone of Nautilus Homes to any business owner looking to build their dream office space. You will be wowed and amazed by his talent. Thank you Nautilus Homes!
