If you asked Ray what he enjoys most about the construction business he would quickly reply, "The relationships with my clients and the development of the projects." To Ray, it's all about relationships - a philosophy he has held throughout his fourteen years as a builder and seven years as an engineer.
His building career began in college working as a finish carpenter while he pursed an engineering degree. A few years after receiving his engineering degree from the University of Louisiana; he accepted a position as project manager for one of the largest and most respected structural engineering firms in Naples.
Eventually, Ray followed his passion to be part of the entire building process. In addition to acquiring his General Contractors license, he utilized his background in finish carpentry and started a millwork and custom cabinet shop.
One of Acadian Builders most prestigious attributes is their millwork shop. They cater to their clientele by designing and creating custom trim and casing, cabinets, doors, staircases, built-ins, and furniture. Acadian Builder's experienced master craftsmen are able to produce virtually anything made from wood in their private millwork shop. They pride themselves on all woodwork products being well made, highly functional, and aesthetically exceptional.
The facility is utilized for Acadian Builders' projects and provides a level of quality and service that other custom home builders don't afford. Their millwork services are only available to their clientele and not offered to other builders or subcontractors.
This unique service comes as a major benefit to customers. While other builders would have to involve two or more vendors in the process, Acadian Builders is exclusively involved from start to finish. This often translates to the client as a cost and savings and a more refined product
Ray has always been active and involved in his community. He was a long time member and served office, as Secretary of the Naples Sunset Rotary Club. For ten years Ray was involved with the Collier Building Industry Association, and led as President in 2013
