ESTERO — Kaufman Lynn Construction, based on the east coast of Florida, has opened an office in Southwest Florida to focus on new projects in the region, and the company named Daniel Root regional senior vice president.
Root will oversee the new office, which is the latest in the full-service construction firm’s growth. It recently opened an office in Raleigh, N.C., established a presence in Texas and opened its new corporate headquarters in Delray Beach.

The company recently completed Moorings Park at Grey Oak in Naples and has more Gulf Coast-area projects underway including Springs at Hammock Cove, Springs at Port Charlotte, Addison Place in Naples and the Erickson Senior Living Sales Center in Naples.
