About Forshee Construction & Restoration
Their goal of “Restoring & Beautifying the state of Florida”
President & Founder: Patrick J Forshee was first introduced to the building industry through his father, who co-founded National Home Insulators in South New Jersey. Patrick began his career working for a firm specializing in structural steel erection and maintenance of radio and water towers, structures that were extremely high and difficult to access. Yet rigging and repairing these structures were exactly the varied experiences Patrick needed to use on larger structural projects within aging communities as his career moved forward. In the late 1970s Patrick relocated to Southern Florida and founded a waterproofing and painting company.
Patrick gained valuable information and project experience working on joint projects with Concrete Preservation Specialist (CPS Construction), including high-rise buildings from West Palm Beach to Hutchinson Island and thereby adding concrete restoration to his company’s offering. Patrick developed relationships with many Property Managers and Condominium Associations as his volume of work steadily increased. Patrick has performed not only structural and coating projects for these clients but also offering many exterior enhancements, including new walkways, brick pavers, decorative stone and foam trim, new windows and door, pergolas, Bar-B-Que areas, etc. Many of his clients depended heavily on Patrick’s firm during the Hurricanes of 2004 and 2005.
This experience led Patrick into many Historic Restoration projects in the Palm Beaches, such as the Gulf Stream Hotel in Lake Worth, the Comeau Building in West Palm Beach and the Parliament Center (Theater) in Palm Beach, to name few. These types of projects enabled Patrick’s firm to gain valuable experience in structural and Historic restoration, expanding his experience and knowledge with structural steel and wood constructed buildings. Working closely with Architects, Engineers and Historic Boards added to his experience. In fact, this experience grew into a major passion for Patrick, and his work has expanded to include working on most of the major buildings on Clematis Street, in West Palm Beach, and worked on many projects with the Down Town Development Authority. This experience and passion also led to restoring many historic homes in the Palm Beaches. This focus required Patrick to develop a renovation, addition, and remodeling division, thereby expanding the company’s client base not only to Historic buildings and homes also but to many other residential single-family, multi-family and condominium renovations as well.
Vice President of Miami Dade Division: Thomas V. Larkin Jr. began his experience in the construction industry in 1968, at a very young age working for Drillco Equipment of New York. The company expanded a subsidiary company in Miami, Florida. Where Mr. Larkin forged and developed his hands-on experience, knowledge and passion for the industry. Mr. Larkin was a regional representative for the company, which specialized in concrete breaking, cutting, drilling and fastening equipment. In 1975 Mr. Larkin’s success led to other branches opening in Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Orlando, and Jacksonville. Tom has been a trusted and integral part of the company. The company also survived the devastating economic recession of 1975 by supplying the nuclear power industry with concrete drilling and fastening equipment meeting the unprecedented requirements in securing concrete thickness for nuclear infrastructures. One of Mr. Larkin’s proudest accomplishments was the undertaking and developing of equipment to meet the demands of projects of this magnitude, which he had never seen before. With Mr. Larkin’s experience and knowledge they created industry known equipment with patents, such as, The Rebar Eater Bit, DS-69A Drill Stop Box, an array of Drill Stands, The Maxi-Bolt Anchoring System that would provide support for this type of heavy civil industry. This expanded Mr. Larkin’s career internationally.
In the mid 90’s Mr. Larkin worked with Patrick Forshee on some fascinating concrete restorations projects in West Palm Beach. Tom’s cutting experience was invaluable to the projects they worked together on. A relationship and bond was created, which impacted Tom’s passion and career today. Soon after Tom spent 8 years in New Orleans involved on projects with Petro-Chemical Industry, Bridge Rehabilitation which entailed a lot of anchor bolt rework. Tom was also involved with The Water and Sewage Board of New Orleans, including other specific work, such as rotating equipment and securing foundation bolts. Tom’s tenacity to completing complicated and important main structure projects continued to bring the best out of him. For the past 14 years Tom has truly enjoyed working in New York City supplying the construction industry with major renovations of high rise buildings and subway tunnel work. Mr. Larkin has even been assigned to complete restorative work in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. In Tom’s experience, he has found NYC’s infrastructures second to none. Mr. Larkin’s knowledge and passion in construction is a genuine asset to the Forshee Construction Organization.
