Pat Ball, a third generation native Floridian, founded Ball Construction in 1974. He’s built a reputation, in 45 years of building, of doing quality work for such noted firms as Carl Abbott Architects and Planners, Guy Peterson Office for Architecture and Seibert Architects. Over the course of his professional career, Pat has cultivated close ties with key area institutions such as the Historical Society of Sarasota County and has also cultivated friendships and productive working relationships with the area’s best architects, engineers and subcontractors.
The guiding principle for Ball Construction is to build or remodel a unique custom home for the discerning client, while maintaining the highest commitment to skilled craftsmanship and attention to detail. In achieving this standard the company has been involved in new residential and commercial construction, remodeling with additions and historic preservation of premier locations in Sarasota and surrounding counties for forty years. A few of Pat’s most notable projects include the restoration of John Ringling’s Ca d’Zan mansion, the restoration of the Guptill House at Historic Spanish Point in Osprey, and, in the past year, the restoration of the 1949 Paul Rudolph/Ralph Twitchell-designed Revere Quality House on Siesta Key.
In 2007, Pat was awarded the AIA Florida Mellen C. Greeley Craftsman Award, which honors contractors who have displayed outstanding craftsmanship in architect-led projects.
