Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to build in Harbour Island, Bahamas?
This question is by far the most frequently asked question. Depending on details, finishes and the current cost of building materials, it can cost anywhere between $500 to $1200 per square feet, but this would be entirely based on the clients' preferences.
Would it be difficult to get heavy equipment for a project?
Higgs Construction has a wide variety of heavy equipment that we use for our projects including crane trucks, skid steers, dump trucks and cement mixers.
How difficult is it to get building supplies to the island?
We have a large supply of building material on hand but for all custom pieces and any additional supplies, there are freight boats coming from Nassau and the United States a couple times a week so we are able to meet the on-island demand.
