About Scott Michael Accardo
30 years of design and construction experience.
Scott Accardo, Island Design Build Corp. CEO and President, was founded in 1989. It began strictly as a design firm but I quickly realized that there was a great need for qualified contractors who acted in a professional manner and performed quality work. My father was a builder and since I had been on a construction site as long as I can remember, I decided to start building the projects I was designing.
Throughout my college years, I won every award and competition I entered. I graduated number one in my class and upon graduation immediately began working for a local Architect. After 3 1/2 years with this firm, I resigned my position as head project designer and production manager and started my own company, Island Design Build Corp.
After several years of building, I realized that the next issue to overcome was quality control and scheduling issues with the subcontractors. Therefore, I decided to hire my own employees and have since built a talented staff. Many employees have been with me over 15 years, guaranteeing the same quality finish on each and every job. We employ our own framers, trimmers, painters, masons, and machine operators.
