About US

Freeboard Contracting was founded in the Spring of 2023. The owner, Cole Reardon, has 15 years of experience in marine construction and over 20 years of experience in the general construction industry. Wanting to stay local in Northeast Florida to make a living and continue to pursue his professional passion in the marine construction industry, he decided to form a company that would allow him to do just that. Cole has direct field experience on complex waterfront projects for both public and private agencies. Some qualifications and skills he has obtained over the years are construction engineering, drafting, estimating, project management, field supervision, rough carpentry and marine surveying.
