Meet Steve Daniel, General Contractor



Steve Daniel is a native of Winter Haven, FL and an alumni of the University of Florida.  After graduating from the University of Florida, Steve managed a mortgage company in Gainesville, FL.  After several years, the seeds of prior construction work began to germinate and Steve realized that the construction industry was where he saw his future.  Upon returning to his hometown, Steve was blessed with an opportunity to learn many different aspects of the construction business from a master craftsman, well respected builder and friend.

In the fall of 1995, Steve formed SRD Construction, which is headquartered in Winter Haven and also operates in Lakeland and the rest of Polk County. Steve’s vision has always been deliberate and focused on the goal of not just building quality but going to the next step of building excellence. Steve and his team of professionals at SRD Construction are committed to partner with every client in a relationship that is based on uncompromising integrity, exceptional craftsmanship and effective communication.

Steve is a member of the Polk County Builders Association, the National Home Builders Association, the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce, and the Florida Green Building Coalition.  SRD Construction is a multiple past winner of the Polk County Builders Association Parade of Homes Home of the Year Award and the Energy Star Builder Award.  Steve is an active member of Redeemer Presbyterian Church and is married to Kathy Daniel. Steve and Kathy have three children.

 Our Philosophy

Our core values are representative of our business philosophy and are a very real part of what defines SRD Construction.

Integrity: Ours is a 100% commitment to integrity.  Financial integrity, verbal integrity, and moral integrity are pillars that build trust.  Every project meets exacting standards. From the smallest project to the most complicated engineering design, your job is a financial investment.  As stewards of your investment and trust, we demand the best and will not compromise. We “walk the talk” and are known in our community as a company of integrity and trust.

Communication: During the planning stages, during the construction phase and even after you have placed the welcome mat at the front door, SRD Construction knows that good communication is paramount to a successful project and a long-lasting relationship.  Good communication will help identify and resolve potential issues, minimize costly change orders, ease anxieties, and keep the project moving smoothly. At SRD Construction, we listen closely.  This is one thing that sets us apart from other builders.

Relationships: Communicating openly and honestly throughout the building process “cements” successful relationships with our clients. We value our relationships and are committed to delivering a finished product that will exceed your expectations and stand the test of time. Because we partner with you during every phase of the project, we anticipate your needs and respond to your changes.

Construction Excellence: The combination of fine materials, unsurpassed craftsmanship, great attention to detail, and a keen eye for design have given us a reputation of construction excellence. Our passion for excellence is part of who we are and is evident in the work that we do.
