Company Overview

Founded in 1954, when Fort Lauderdale was no more than a Mecca for tourists, “Howard Torn General Contractor” established a name within the construction industry. Specializing in speculative building, tract building and custom building, our construction projects have been a part of the tremendous growth that has taken place throughout South Florida for over the last 50 years.

In 1983, as a result of that growth, Spiro Telegadis and Charles Mishner brought their varied talents to the team, and Howard Torn General Contractor became Howard Torn Construction Associates. In August of 1999, Howard Torn and Spiro Telegadis retired from the firm, leaving Charles Mishner as the current President and owner of the Company. Charles was mentored by two of the best construction professionals in South Florida, and as a result, the company’s legacy for refined, detail-oriented, quality construction lives on and is as successful as ever.

More recently, our services have expanded beyond our previous horizons to include: multimillion-dollar commercial-residential conversions, and large-scale retrofitting projects, as well as, a variety of other services ranging from expert witness testimony to construction consulting and management. We look forward to what the future has in store as we continue to provide Florida with superior construction-related service in all aspects of the industry.
