LEADERS IN QUALITY CONSTRUCTION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
DFI, a long-time builder in the east central Florida region with custom timber bridges nationwide, offers its customers a team of over seventy five full-time employees to ensure consistent performance and sensitive customer service. In many communities around the nation, general contractors tend to broker the services and oversee the projects. DFI uses a unique business model that puts it firmly in control of its operations. DFI has a pool of tradesmen who are employed by the company, allowing DFI to limit subcontracting and save on middleman markup. The company also owns, maintains and operates millions of dollars worth of construction equipment from cranes to welding units.
DFI's mission is to provide quality construction, technical and management services. We strive to implement a long-term relationship with our clients based on safety, quality, timely service and an anticipation of our clients' needs.

DFI is a licensed general contractor. Our organization is both insured and bondable. From pre-construction through completion, we are putting our knowledge, relationships, experience and extensive resources to work on a variety of construction projects across the country.
Take advantage of the cost- and time-saving benefits of our design-build services. With an in-house design firm, DFI provides a unique opportunity to maximize your savings and simplify the construction process. Our architecture and construction teams work in adjoining offices, so communication is streamlined and the teams work in tandem to bring you an integrated approach that is focused on the specific needs of your project.
Armed with information, authority, and a gift for communication, our expert Project Managers will deliver your project on-time and on-budget. Project management services help organizations achieve project goals and objectives within scope, time and budgetary constraints. They can also help optimize the allocation of resources and integrate the inputs that will drive the completion of the project's objectives.
Structural Steel Fabrication
We custom design and fabricate structural steel components for a variety of applications, including commercial and industrial uses across industries with strict and precise specifications. We take pride in our reputation for consistent superiority in quality and fit. DFI is experienced with American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) certification, the most recognized quality certification program in the industry that represents a total commitment to rigorous quality standards demanded by the marketplace, with an eye toward preventing errors rather than having to go back and later correct them.
We specialize in a complete package of infrastructure work. We own, maintain and operate the majority of light and heavy equipment needed during the construction process. Unlike most general contactors, we control all aspects of the building process, using our own manpower and equipment, ensuring timetables are met and costs are competitive. Ownership of the equipment is costly, but our philosophy is based on the relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction, and investment at this level ensures the best product for the customer.
Our extensive experience in concrete serves as the foundation for delivering durable, long-term solutions. We apply our commitment to quality design & materials on all of our projects. From retaining walls and bulkheads, to site-cast concrete and resort boardwalks, we have done it all. Our team has experience working on concrete construction projects of all sizes in varying climates, geographic locations and production situations. We understand the importance of customizing each solution to meet the needs of the project.
Architecture & Design
Every project presents a diverse set of challenges and opportunities. No matter the size or budget, our professional design team is dedicated to providing the service, value and leading edge that our clients expect. We specifically tailor our services to best serve the client, bringing the full range of our experience to the project – technical expertise, collaborative energy and design innovation.
Cost Estimating &
We provide comprehensive cost estimating services to help control costs from start to finish. Our cost information is always based on current market data that accurately represents the scope, complexity and quality anticipated for each individual project. We understand the bottom line, and that's why we value engineer throughout the project to determine the most economical means and methods for construction, without sacrificing quality and functionality.

We specialize in Department of Transportation (DOT) approved heavy highway and residential vehicular bridges, golf cart and light maintenance bridges, and pedestrian and walkway bridges. Our 300+ sustainable and resilient bridges can be found in golf courses, amusement parks and recreational parks, as well as on personal property, in more than 25 different states.

We have the know-how you need.
Adapt and Overcome.
“I wanted to take a few moments to let you know that we are very pleased with the construction of our bridges. The material was excellent, and the construction techniques were outstanding. Despite the horrible Michigan weather, the project was a success. Even though my construction background is limited, I have managed hundreds of people as a golf course superintendent, and I feel like I should tell you how hard your crew work for you. They were always professional and courteous, even when it was -12 degrees and they were going on 6 hours of sleep. They also never let the job or the conditions get the best of them. They built the bridges according to the engineered drawings and never wavered regardless of what was going on around them. They were always happy to be there and working hard. I would like to thank you and your staff for persevering though equipment breakdowns, theft and the weather to provide us with two very fine bridges.”
