SRD BUILDING CORPORATION Pre-Eminent, Inspiring Old-World Craftsmanship in Royal Palm

By Lesley BoydBuilder-ArchitectWEB

Steeped in nearly half a century of rich tradition, Boca Raton’s world-renowned Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club emanates luxury and elegance.  All of the homes in this private residential community exude character, sophistication and wealth.  Of the builders in this community, only SRD Building Corporation can claim 77 quality, new-home builds since 1992, a vast feat with only 688 home sites in the entire community.  Although over 10% of the homes in Royal Palm are designed and built by award-winning builder SRD Building Corporation, the company is more concerned with superior quality.  Echoing SRD Building Corporation’s mantra, “Quality at its finest,” the company has created unparalleled, awe-inspiring estates in Royal Palm that have raised the bar for luxury building and helped set the standard to which other builders strive to achieve.

“In my 25 years as a real estate agent and homeowner in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, I have gained an acute understanding of the marquee value of a home,” said David W. Roberts, owner of Royal Palm Properties and homeowner of an SRD Building Corporation “Signature Home.” “SRD Building has an unparalleled devotion to quality homes, following a distinct formula that includes purchasing exceptional lots, working with the right architect and incorporating the intricate details that set their homes apart.  In fact, when my family was ready to sell our old home in Royal Palm, we were looking for a temporary house to use while we hired a top builder to create our dream home.  We knew that we wanted a trophy lot, an all-concrete fortified structure created by the right architect and built by the best builder.  We didn’t have to look any further than a spec home developed by SRD Building – all of our choices were aligned and their spec home became our family’s new home.”


Launched in 1991, SRD Building Corporation has grown into the pre-eminent custom luxury home builder in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club.  As a significant sign of their leadership abilities, business partners and brothers Scott and Steve Dingle have grown the company to include 10 full-time employees including supervisors and office staff, many of whom have been with SRD Building Corporation since day one.

Starting out with a handful of remodeling and custom-home building projects, SRD Building Corporation has developed a well-earned following of Royal Palm customers who have perpetuated their business through word-of-mouth referrals.  Today, SRD Building Corporation undertakes five to seven teardowns and rebuilds a year in the range of $3 – 12 million, primarily in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club.

Of their strong presence in the Royal Palm community, President Scott Dingle commented, “We have found our niche in Royal Palm.  Over the years, we have developed a commitment to and pride in this community, which is clearly reflected in the homes we create.”


Custom-home building requires the combined efforts of a knowledgeable team of experts who are able to interact consistently with a demanding client, while simultaneously offering innovative solutions and high-quality products.  Drawing on over 40 years of combined experience in the industry, SRD Building Corporation’s Scott and Steve Dingle personally oversee each project to ensure its ultimate fruition into a home that the owners are proud to own.

“The design-build process can be overwhelming for our clients,” said Scott.  “We strive to put our customer’s best interests first and walk through the process with them, turning their dream-home visions into reality.  We truly believe in open, honest communication throughout the building process to develop long-lasting relationships with our customers.”

Known throughout Royal Palm for its attention to detail, unmatched customer service and high quality, SRD Building Corporation earns accolades from local organizations and high praise from vendors, previous and current customers alike.

“SRD Building Corp. did an absolutely spectacular job building our new home in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club,” mentioned Peter Brockway.  “They provided great insights from the initial planning stages and throughout construction of our home.  SRD Building was incredibly organized and professional, and operated with the highest integrity.  We literally did not miss a beat with the construction, resulting in first-rate quality.”

SRD Building Corporation continuously completes homes of the highest quality, and their coveted reputation speaks for itself.

“I chose SRD Building because they have the best reputation in Royal Palm.  They review every minute detail to ensure that the home is not only functional, but actually works for the owner,” commented Joseph Scaggs, an SRD Building Corporation customer in Royal Palm.  “In fact, based on my interactions with SRD and the quality of the finished home, my brother is now building his own home in Royal Palm with SRD Building.  I have even begun a joint venture for a new home on the Intercoastal, making this the third house we have built with SRD in the last 20 months!”


The trend toward green building is continuing to gain momentum in all venues, be it commercial, industrial or residential.  SRD building Corporation is further expanding their luxury repertoire to include certified green-building techniques.

“Already committed to environmental stewardship and utilizing energy-efficient techniques, building a truly green home up to LEED for Homes’ standards is not a large stretch for SRD Building,” commented Steve Dingle, Vice President of SRD Building Corporation.

The concept of green building was already ingrained in SRD Building Corporation’s standard practices over the years; however, the company is using its current stronghold in the Royal Palm community to introduce a new layer of luxury living: certified eco-luxury.

Utilizing architect John Conway’s unique designs, SRD Building Corporation will soon break ground on a five-bedroom, six full-and two half-bath spec estate home boasting 6,669 square feet of living space, expected to become the first LEED-certified home in the Royal Palm community.  SRD Building Corporation will design and build this home in accordance to the Crystal Quality Built program and achieve the standards necessary to gain the following certifications:  LEED for Homes, Fortified…for safer living, ENERGY STAR, Florida Green Home and Florida Water Star.


In this competitive custom luxury home market, SRD Building Corporation relies heavily on trusted and true subcontractors to uphold the quality that is the essence of their business model.  Because the finished product reflects completely on the builder, the longevity of a business relationship plays a tremendous factor in completing the overall project goals.

“The majority of our subcontractors have been trusted business partners for the better part of a decade or more,” indicated Scott.  “We search out and solidify relationships with partners who conform to our ideals of quality first and doing things right the first time.”

By partnering with the area’s best subcontractors, architects and interior designers, SRD Building Corporation’s visionary team continues to emanate grandeur and luxurious quality, supporting their highly respected reputation.

“Working with SRD Building on many custom homes in Royal Palm, I have found their flawless execution of our architectural and design concepts is testimony to their vast experience in all phases of construction and development,” commented Susan Connor, President/CEO, P&H Interiors.  “They maintain an excellent rapport with vendors and clients alike because they define the very meaning of ‘integrity’ in the building industry.”

SRD Building Corporation is involved in building trade organization such as the Gold Coat Builders Association, National Association of Home Builders, the U.S. Green Building Council and Florida Green Building Coalition to ensure compliance and understanding of the latest standards and trends in the industry.  The company is dedicated to developing business in Boca Raton’s Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, with a high concentration of teardowns and quality, new, custom luxury estate construction.

“We look forward to continuing to build in Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club,” stated Scott.  “SRD Building Corporation is 100% committed to increasing property values and continuing to build relationships with homeowners in this community.”
