Intern – Owen Johnson

When you think of Naples, Florida, pristine beaches, upscale shopping, and breathtaking sunsets might come to mind. But there’s another side to Naples that’s equally impressive – its luxury construction industry. This summer, I had the privilege of interning with a prominent luxury builder, PBS Contractors in Naples, and the experience left me in awe of the incredible work culture and unwavering commitment to detail that defines this company.  

The cornerstone of any luxury builder’s reputation is the quality of their work. In Naples, this isn’t just a standard – it’s a way of life. My internship began with an expectation that emphasized the importance of craftsmanship and attention to detail. I quickly realized that in this luxury market, every nail, every tile, and every finish had to meet the highest standards. 

What sets PBS apart is not just the luxurious homes they build but also the sense of community. They were deeply involved in philanthropic endeavors, supporting local causes and organizations. This commitment to giving back was inspiring and demonstrated the builder’s dedication to making Naples an even better place to live. 

 My internship in Naples, Florida, with this Concierge Builder, was an eye-opening experience. It showcased the high standards of craftsmanship and attention to detail. The collaborative work culture, continuous learning opportunities, and commitment to the community all contributed to a truly exceptional internship experience. 

 While building for PBS Contractors, I quickly learned being a concierge builder isn’t just about building homes; it’s about building better lives through constructing timeless works of art that stand as a testament to the city’s dedication to quality and beauty. My time here has left me with a profound appreciation for the artistry and craftsmanship that goes into every luxury home, the company’s values, and I look forward to carrying these lessons with me throughout my career in construction.
