Grant Castilow photo

A State Certified General Contractor and LEED Accredited Professional, Grant’s love for designing, building and living sustainably dates back to his youth while growing up on a farm in rural Pennsylvania. After graduating from Johnson & Wales University, he worked in operations management, new store development and construction for several high-end, corporate restaurant chains.

Despite his commercial restaurant construction success, Grant’s real passion remained in custom home design and building and so he relocated with his family to Sarasota in 1996, where he founded Castilow Construction and later My Green Buildings, LLC.

For the past 25 years, Grant’s multifaceted expertise in all aspects of the construction industry and trades have earned him the reputation as one of southwest Florida’s premier custom home builders. Combined, Grant and the companies he has founded have earned more than two dozen local, regional and national awards for design, building, construction management and customer service excellence.

Vertical | Design+Build culminates Grant’s vision of bringing together our area’s top architects, designers, skilled craftsmen, and construction to deliver a highly rewarding design and build experience for his clients.
