While most of the firm’s commercial, industrial, and institutional building projects have been in west and central Florida, in recent years projects have been completed across most of the Southeastern United States giving the company the opportunity to open a division office in Greenville, SC.  After having their main office in Tampa for many years, the company moved into new headquarters located in Plant City July of 2007. Canco projects include the construction of new buildings of all types and sizes, the renovation and expansion of existing facilities, and site development projects.

Over 23 Years of Quality

While Canco’s reputation as quality building contractors has grown since its founding in 1986, the firm has also built a well-respected foundation financially. Canco’s volume of completed work has grown steadily with annual revenues in recent years of nearly $30 million. Canco’s reputation allows the company to enjoy long-standing relationships with the area’s better subcontractors and vendors, with those listed below being among the more than 100 doing business with Canco each year.

A majority of Canco projects are completed on a Design-Build basis with the team approach (the Owner, the Contractor and the independent design firms) working to best meet the needs of the Owner. Under the Design-Build form of contracting the Contractor lends his expertise through the design phase knowing the quality and budgetary demands of the Owner. Once the project is designed and the cost estimating is completed, a contract under the typical fixed sum form which is used by most contractors can be executed or a Guaranteed Maximum Price/Shared Savings form that is used on most Canco projects is executed.

Under the GMP/Shared Savings form of agreement the project proceeds on a not to exceed price basis with the owner credited with the majority of the savings which may be realized through the construction phase of the project. Most of the projects shown within this web site were completed under the GMP/Shared Savings form of contract agreement.
