Family values built in.
Willoughby Construction is a family business built on family values. Family values are built into everything we do. This is our ethos.
Craig Willoughby’s dream was to have a respected family construction business. He paid the dues over a long and extensive career to see his dream come true. Joining Craig, sons Bryan and Jason Willoughby are the next generation to distinguish the family name.
"The Willoughby name must set an expectation of excellence. From the time we were boys, that's what our father expected of us. Now, as men and as his partners, that's what we demand of our team and ourselves."
Craig Willoughby, Chairman, Licensed General Contractor and General Manager, founded Willoughby Construction in 2008. A veteran leadership team member for one of South Florida’s largest and most prolific commercial construction and development firms, Willoughby launched this company with only two goals: work side by side with his sons and deliver elite luxury construction projects. His practice is unadorned but in so many ways, revolutionary. “Do the work. Spend the time engrossed in every detail, from the most obvious to the smallest, as you would if it were your own home.”
Craig Willoughby has over 40 years experience. He knows every job on a construction project, having worked as a superintendent and progressing to become a builder and developer in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Prior to founding Willoughby Construction, he completed commercial and residential projects totaling in excess of 5,500,000 square feet, with a project value over $300 million. Craig Willoughby counts his personal integrity and stellar reputation as two of his greatest achievements. In the same breath he mentions “family success and being a husband and father.” Craig Willoughby holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Miami University. He is OSHA Certified and a Licensed Florida General Contractor.
