of its projects. "Safety on-site is our No. 1 priority and is maintained
by a staff of highly trained, qualified and competent employees
under the supervision of our safety managers," Jackson says.
Founded in 1983 in Palmetto, Fla., Prince performs all the critical elements of civil construction and transportation projects. Jackson has
been with the company for a decade. After having been out in the
field for most of his career, he now works as the contracts administrator in the company's headquarters.
Bid/build and design/build roadway projects are the company's
specialties, as its crews can perform the clearing, earthmoving,
drainage, utility, road base, bridge and concrete work. In 2014, Prince
was acquired by Dragados Construction USA, a subsidiary of ACS
Group, one of the largest civil construction companies in the world.
"In the heavy civil world, estimating is critical," Jackson says.
"Florida is getting more into design/build projects and working with
engineers and designers as opposed to the low-bid approach. Our
estimating department is constantly working on putting the best
possible bids together. That is why we've been doing more of the
design/build kind of work over the last six years. We've won and
completed a number of design/build projects. That is an area where
we have been seeing a lot of progress, and our estimating team is
doing a great job in that area."
Moving forward, Prince will continue to seek projects and growth
in Florida, as well as seek new opportunities to venture outside of
the state. "We learned [from the I-75 project] that we can take on
new and not widely used - at least in Florida - design concepts and
successfully plan, implement and complete the work within our
established goals and deliver a successful project to FDOT and the
citizens of Florida," Jackson says.
