The Windward Story

The Creative Mind Behind our Brand

Our founder, Brian Haag, was destined to become a builder. Growing up in a small Wisconsin town where sons generally followed in their fathers’ footsteps, Brian’s father was a builder and a developer. His family moved to Cape Coral, Florida, when Brian was 16, and he then went on to study at the University of Florida and serve in the United States Navy.

However, homebuilding is in Brian’s DNA, and he soon launched his own development company based on his vision of collaborating with owners to build personal, original homes. His company grew into a large enterprise, producing over a thousand homes and subdivisions in master-planned communities. While the growth and success of his company were impressive, Brian was no longer able to work personally with every homeowner. Due to his increased responsibilities of running a big company, Brian had to rely on other resources and missed the first-hand experience of building a trusted and connected relationship with clients. His desire to connect with clients and take part in the creative process was the catalyst for the creation of Windward Construction.

Personal Connection with Unlimited Creativity

Windward Construction was founded on Brian’s desire to reconnect with his building roots and construct custom luxury homes in Southwest Florida. Brian understands our region’s unique environment and its effect on home structures. Therefore, every building material and process ensures the enduring integrity and beauty of our Windward Signature Homes. Brian’s approach is methodical, with extraordinary precision and attention to every detail from the beginning. This requires our team to have exceptional visualization and imagination to meet and exceed your every wish and desire so that you are ultimately satisfied with your new home.

With Brian’s leadership, we have formed a core team of the most skilled professionals in the industry to build exclusive, high-quality homes in Southwest Florida. Before construction begins, our team helps you develop your vision for your new home with brainstorming and 3D renderings to fulfill all the nuances unique to your lifestyle. Furthermore, we are confident we can build your dream home because of our longstanding relationships with subcontractors and suppliers who share our uncompromising commitment to quality materials, artisanship, and respect for budgets and timelines. Our pursuit of excellence is why Windward Construction is the intersection of building and imagination.
