Building on What We Started

Emerald C’s Development is a state-certified licensed general contractor and premiere provider of quality commercial construction services in Jacksonville, Florida. Founded in 2010 by the husband-and-wife team of Brittany and Jesse Culbreth, the firm has become a prominent name for high-level commercial interior buildouts, tenant improvements and site renovations across the First Coast.

The name ‘Emerald C’s’ stems from Brittany and Jesse’s early roots along Florida’s Emerald Coast, while also representing the Culbreth family name. Since focusing their construction management and general contracting services in Jacksonville, the couple have spent the past decade carrying out a wide variety of new design-build and commercial renovation projects for high-profile clients like Brooks Rehabilitation, Turner Pest Control, Velocity Air Sports, and many others.

From pre-construction project planning to value engineering, project management and general contracting, at Emeralds C’s our goal is to continue proving ourselves as Jacksonville’s top commercial construction company and a preferred resource for all of Northeast Florida’s commercial building and project renovation needs.

Frances PovloskiOwner of Beachside Benefits and Wealth Strategies

As a business and building owner, I find that my time is limited. Brittany, with Emerald C’s Development was able to work with my hectic schedule and never seemed to be fazed by the difficulty of reaching me. She did all the leg work and made last minute changes that to me meant everything; all the while keeping the project on schedule and done on time.
