Croom Construction :: Smart Moves 40th Anniversary

“When building a home, there is never one person who could possibly be adept at doing it all. By virtue of our size and structure, when you hire Croom Construction Company you get the most specialized professionals.” – D AV I D C R O O M

40 YEARS. TWO GENERATIONS. ONE TALENTED TEAM. It was a smart move the day we opened our doors in Vero Beach 40 years ago. From the first day, Croom Construction Company has had one goal in mind: to consistently be the best at building and remodeling custom homes. We achieved that goal early on and, thanks to our talented team, we continue to build upon that success every day. Founded by David Croom on March 1, 1978 Croom Construction built many of the first homes in the private communities of Windsor, John’s Island, and Orchid. That same year we built and sold the first home in John’s Island ever to exceed $200,000. At that time, the cost per square foot was $45! During the 1980’s, we continued building approximately 10 speculative homes per year for John’s Island as well as multiple custom homes. We’ve now built and remodeled more than 1,000 homes throughout our seaside community. David’s son, Charles,

joined the family business in 2005 after gaining more than 10 years of experience at Brasfield & Gorrie, a nationally ranked commercial construction company. Charles quickly followed the mantra of always doing what’s right by your client. We’re grateful for our beautiful community and the people who chose to make it their home. Few places can boast such philanthropic individuals, talented professionals and cultural arts – all of which make it a wonderful place to live. We’re proud to have been a part of the thoughtful development of Vero Beach. To our clients, friends, design partners, employees and family: thank you for 40 fabulous years! We’re primed and ready for many more years of building in the community that we call home.
