Celebrating 20 Years!

20 Year Anniversary

Today marks 20 years that Thornton Construction has been building and renovating all over South Florida!

Established on this day in 1998, Thornton has grown from a two-man operation, to a fully operational company now established across Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties with four dedicated business sectors.

As a testament to our success, we have recently been recognized by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce as a finalist for the 2018 Good to Great Awards!  Furthermore, we are very excited to announce that we will be opening our new regional headquarter office next year!

Our successes can only be celebrated by also recognizing all who have participated in Thornton’s growth throughout the years. A huge thank you to all of our clients and trade partners for entrusting, and continuing to entrust, your invaluable projects to us! Thank you as well to our dedicated team members for helping shape Thornton into the great company that we have become over the last 20 years.

We look forward to continue expanding our impact throughout the local communities we serve. Thank you again for your continued partnership!

During the Florida Educational Facilities Planners’ Association, Inc. (FEFPA) 2018 Winter Conference held January 31st through February 2nd, Dr. Toni Bilbao Preparatory Academy was announced 2018 Architectural Showcase Winner, under the Middle Schools category.

Thornton Construction proudly completed the construction of this new two-story K-8 school together with Zyscovich Architects. Entries were evaluated based on the following criteria: Innovative Response to Educational Program; Aesthetics and Use of Materials; Flexibility for Community Use; Technology Provisions; Green Design; Relationship of Spaces and Expandability; and Site Development.

The new Dr. Toni Bilbao Preparatory Academy officially opened its doors for the 2017-2018 school year. Built on a green site, it features 37 classrooms, multiple offices, media center, music, arts, language, and discovery labs, and a dining/multi-purpose area. Two basketball/volleyball courts, two playfields, a PE shelter, and a total of 62-parking spaces were also part of the project scope. This school was funded under the county’s General Obligation Bond (GOB) program, and serves as a prototype for other Miami-Dade County Public School facilities.
