Bob Hanson and Mike Kildow are the owners and operators of Belvedere Builders, headquartered in Brandon, Hillsborough County, Florida. The company is a full-service Construction company.
Bob Hanson first developed an interest in construction as a 9 year-old, building tree forts and toys. Professionally, he started as a framer throwing plywood and toting lumber. He soon moved on to become a project manager for a custom home builder until he was ready to go out on his own. He utilizes his years of experience, problem-solving skills, and passion for beautiful, functional construction to serve Belvedere’s customers today.
After majoring in economics and finance in college, Mike Kildow ended up joining his family in the home building business. He started out sweeping houses on construction sites and through this experience began to understand the ins and outs of building. He eventually went back for a civil engineering degree and became a project manager in commercial construction in Virginia. After moving to Florida, Mike began working for his family’s custom home business, and then he discovered his passion for the process of starting with an idea and making it come to life.
Bob and Mike eventually joined forces to establish Belvedere Builders, bringing over 40 years combined experience in the residential and commercial construction industry to Tampa area clients. They came up with the business name by looking through a list of architectural terms. Belvedere means a tower or turret that overlooks a beautiful view. They love helping clients to achieve that beautiful view through their custom design services..
When it comes to providing expert Construction services, nothing takes the place of experience. Bob began working in Construction 40 years ago and started Belvedere Builders in 2014.
One of Belvedere Builders’s goals is to provide their Hillsborough County clients with professional and affordable services. The result, one of the most successful Construction companies in the area!
