Construction Leader DeAngelis Diamond Brings Healthcare Division to Nashville

A nationally known construction firm has joined Nashville's rapidly growing healthcare and commercial construction market, bringing decades of industry expertise to Middle Tennessee. Headquartered in Naples, Fla., DeAngelis Diamond recently chose Franklin as a home for its fourth regional office.

"Considering the market for resources and talent, Middle Tennessee won out over Denver and Austin, which were also in the running," said Jason Sain, vice president and principal of DeAngelis Diamond. "Many of our clients are based out of Nashville, and we felt we could better serve them by having more of a local presence."

DeAngelis Diamond has completed well over $2 billion worth of construction projects ranging in size and value throughout the commercial and healthcare market sectors. Sain said the Nashville office is anticipated to produce a significant and growing amount of the company's revenue this year.


Humble Beginnings

DeAngelis Diamond was founded in 1996 by David Diamond and John DeAngelis, who began their construction industry careers as project managers in Southwest Florida. "They soon realized there had to be a better way to build, and a better way to enrich the client, community and subcontractors' experience," Sain explained.

Several prayerful months later, the friends launched DeAngelis Diamond from a small executive suite. Today, the company is top-ranked in the United States, licensed to build in over 45 states, and also holds a presence in the Caribbean Islands. DeAngelis Diamond has five fully staffed offices in Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota, Birmingham and Nashville.

Today, the company has built up a diverse project portfolio - with experience ranging from multi-phased renovations to projects in excess of $100 million - serving clients from some of the largest and most well known companies in the country, including Nashville-based HCA. Healthcare construction, with all of its specific requirements and regulations, is one of the company's specialties.


Core Beliefs

DeAngelis Diamond is driven by their seven core values of faith in God, lasting relationships, leadership, integrity, healthy environment, excellence and quality, and their company motto, "the Honor to Build."

"Our founders recognized quickly that it really was about relationships and the experience of building projects," Sain said. "Honor and integrity set the company apart. When we make a commitment we keep it, and that's a pretty powerful and difficult thing to do in this industry."


Joshua Rhodes

Joshua Rhodes, division manager for the Nashville DeAngelis Diamond office, said those expectations are consistent company-wide. "By the time we're done with a project, it's our goal that we're actually missed," he said. "If our project managers and staff put on those goggles, they can view people and relationships and construction in a different way than our competition. This ties into Biblical principles, and helps us view issues through the lens of who's really in control."

 
At Home in Nashville

Rhodes said the company has received a warm welcome from Nashville's vast healthcare market, from local architects to contractors. "It's a close-knit community and staying in contact with these groups has been beneficial for us," he said.

The Nashville office has become involved with a local non-profit, Our Kids, through sponsorship of charity events. They also host monthly leadership luncheons through the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce.

 
Finding a Niche

Acute and behavioral health facilities are frequent projects for the company, along with rehab and addiction centers. Rhodes said another trend driving healthcare construction is skilled nursing and assisted living, as memory care units are becoming increasingly standard practices in senior living facilities.

Freestanding emergency departments are another increasingly common project for DeAngelis Diamond. "There's nothing too small or too complicated that we won't look at," Rhodes said, "We consider it an honor to build for our existing and new clients, and we don't take that responsibility lightly."

NAPLES — DeAngelis Diamond Construction recently announced that it’s implementing an advisory board. 

The Naples-based firm, founded by David Diamond and John DeAngelis in 1996, is one of the largest privately-held construction companies in the region, doing work from health care to retail to churches. The firm had $225 million in sales last year, up 64.2% from $137 million in 2014. In addition to Naples, the firm has offices in Fort Myers, Sarasota, Nashville and Birmingham, Ala.

The advisory board includes:
• Tim Cartwright, board member at the Florida Venture Forum and founder and managing director of Compass Advisory Group, which completes business transactions for middle market companies; 
• Kelly Curry, a retired Health Management Associates executive who serves on numerous boards and ministries with international operations; and 
• Steve Walling, founder and CEO of SJW Strategic Solutions, a business consulting group that advises businesses across North America.

“Every company needs to surround itself with leaders who will challenge its people to improve; otherwise the company stagnates and begins to lose ground,” DeAngelis says in the release.

Before they opened the doors of their commercial construction business in Naples 20 years ago, John DeAngelis and David Diamond checked the Yellow Pages to see what they were up against. They found 350 builders listed in the phone book in Southwest Florida. (Yes, the phone book. Smartphones didn't exist yet). "We decided the market didn't need another builder," DeAngelis said. "So we thought why are we going to do this?" Their answer? They wanted to create a different kind of construction company, one focused on a set of core values, book-ended by faith in God and integrity. The company's motto is "The Honor to Build."
