Healthcare ExperTISE

Our team has extensive experience successfully completing multi-phased interior renovations, additions, and ground-up healthcare projects. When working in an existing facility, we understand the importance of creating as little disruption as possible to your ongoing operations and take great measures to ensure that your patients and staff experience the highest levels of safety, cleanliness, and consideration in conjunction with our ability to deliver on time and under budget. We are well versed in successfully delivering many projects that fall under the jurisdiction of the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration’s Office of Plans & Construction (AHCA).

Commercial ExperTISE

On any project, we believe strongly in the value that is created when a partnership is fostered and put to the owner’s advantage at the onset of the project concept. We believe in getting involved in the early stages and making valuable contributions to decisions that will ultimately affect your building’s initial construction cost, speed to market, function, and maintenance needs.

Our Culture

Waltbillig & Hood understands and believes in the necessity of building our business by building meaningful relationships, making reliable commitments and providing clear communication.   We set out daily to foster a liberating balance of support and challenge in the life of everyone involved in every action and decision we make inside and outside of our four walls.


Humility, Innovation, Leadership and Trust are the eternal and immutable principles by which we serve to inspire and deliver extraordinarily successful project experiences.


To be humble is to serve the people around you and be for their highest possible good as much or more than your own.

True humility is to recognize your value and others value while looking up. Its to see there is far greater than our current selves into who we can become, who others can become, and how much more we can do and be.


An idea or action that creates or adds value.  Never stop striving to find, learn or implement a better way.


Leadership is communicating to another person their worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves and accomplish great things.


Trust is to be able to rely on the integrity of those we choose to surround ourselves with. You cannot do one without the other…at least not for very long.

  • I wish to thank you for the wonderful work you and your staff provided us at the Villa.

    The Villa is now fully open and being enjoyed by many families and their parents who are suffering with Dementia. This terrible disease is softened by the warm and sheltering environment that you created for us.

    This project was not easy as there were many people who had oversight and opinions. You worked through all the changes that we as owners threw at you in our attempt to make this project perfect. You worked through all the conditions and rules presented by a HUD financed project and emerged with a clean inspection and satisfied HUD inspector and Lender team. You worked through the Collier County building/fire inspection process which is the toughest in all the states we work in. You were able to get the TCO and CO in a very respectable time frame.

    You and your team worked with me as the Owner’s Representative in a very professional process. This was a pleasure to be a part of this team.

    Thanks again for your service.

  • It is with great honor and pleasure that I write this letter on behalf of Brian Hood, Michael Meadors, and Michael Gatley from the Waltbillig & Hood General Contractors team . As this was my first time building a commercial property, I was anxious about the process, which can be daunting. From the moment that Brian Hood and his team took on my project, I can say without any hesitation that I felt I was in the right hands. They were personally invested in my project and it showed throughout the process. Their goal was to deliver the high quality product that I expected, while guiding me through the process with my best interests at heart.

    There are many moving parts and challenges during any construction process, which have to be managed with skill and in an efficient manner. My particular project involved constructing a multi-tenant medical office building with outpatient surgical facility. My biggest concerns were staying within my budget, finishing on schedule, and building a top notch facility that I could be proud of for years to come. Brian and Mike embraced my goals and helped me realize them. They did so in a positive manner, were always receptive to any questions that I had, and they conducted business with poise and confidence.

    The team at Waltbillig & Hood will never take shortcuts or sacrifice the quality of construction. They take pride in their work, and especially in satisfying their client. I can say that unequivocally, I would choose them for any of my own future construction needs. There is no greater vote of confidence. I would be happy to discuss my experience with any individual who is considering these consummate professionals.
