Chris Lofton and Ron Darmanie first met while working on a hotel renovation project. Chris, a Project Supervisor working with Hensel Phelps, and Ron a subcontractor. Both men, successful in their current career paths saw a brighter future together. The two became fast friends and a bond of trust was built, based on job performance and accountability.
  chris and ron at disney's old key west construction project "Our ideas and future goals lined up one with the other" Chris says. In 2006 "the time was right" and together, Chris and Ron formed New Horizon Construction Services, now known as NHCS llc. "We started with hope and a prayer" says Chris.
The company's first job was a drywall
project for which they earned $2,700.
"The client did not know us, but saw something in our determination. He gave
us a chance. We appreciate the faith of our first client and will never forget that the relationships we build with our clients are our most important asset." Ron says.
By the end of their first year, New Horizon had finished two million dollars of subcontracting work. "We earned respect job by job. We got new clients from referrals. We built the company by doing great work and really responding to what the client wanted" according to Chris. new horizon partners at orlando construction offices

Since then other major hotel companies have turned to New Horizon to help with room renovations, construction services and on-site repairs. New Horizon has helped renovate more than 10,000 hotels rooms over the past 4 years.
