What Sets Us Apart


Chris-Tel Construction was founded in 1989 and is based in Fort Myers, Florida with over 90 years of family history behind it. We are committed to establishing and engaging in long term relationships built upon the principles of integrity, dedication, quality craftsmanship and unwavering work ethic. Our firm has a continuous commitment to the local community and has successfully procured solid relationships with the local market and municipalities over the past twenty-nine years.

Financial Strength

Our firm has the financial strength and capability to procure and manage any type of construction project. Due to our long history of business acumen and smart decisions, Chris-Tel Construction has obtained a bonding capacity of $100 Million for a single project and $300 Million aggregate. This, coupled with our conscious efforts to continue to have a MOD Factor lower than the average (0.79), we are a stable and financially sound firm that has gained the respect and prosperity in our industry.

Diversified Team

We have segmented our firm into three distinct groups (Commercial Construction, Site/Civil and Special Projects) in order to provide our clients with a team that has the all encompassing capacity to manage every aspect of a project. Our Project Managers, Superintendents and staff offer specific knowledge based on the scope at hand and the professional experience to provide a lessons learned and best means and methods approach.

Unmatched Pre-construction

With over 80 years of combined experience, our estimating and pre-construction team is the most talented and experienced in the area who, by default, perform numerous valued-added solutions to each project, large or small. We can lower the client budget by up to 40% during the value engineering and pre-construction phase. Using the latest technology coupled with the long-standing relationships we have built with the local subcontractor market, we procure accurate, fair pricing and historic cost analysis for every client.

Working Relationship with Municipal Officials

Having been in the area for over 90 years, the team at Chris-Tel Construction has fostered a solid working relationship with local County and City officials. This is paramount when navigating permitting, design and certifications during construction as well as tax incentives provided to our clients from the County and City.

Sub-Contractor Relationships

The strong and long-standing relationships we have developed with the local subcontractor and vendor community in Southwest Florida continues to be a key element on every project. The ability to provide our clients with fair and exact pricing for labor and materials maintains our status as an ethical and respected leader in the industry.

Zero Corporate

Chris-Tel Construction has doubled in size since 2015 with regards to our staff and portfolio. This growth however has not changed our culture nor our relationships with our clients. We are local, available and involved from the top down on every project and have the staff at the ready no matter the need of the client.
