About us

General Contractor and family

A dedication to detail, customer satisfaction, and first-rate quality home building are the foundation of Capitol Building and Construction. As the president of Capitol Building, Scott Knapp personally visits each jobsite routinely to ensure every project is running smoothly and on schedule. As a Certified General Contractor (CGC), Scott holds the highest attainable construction license in the state of Florida and can oversee both commercial and residential projects. Having performed residential and commercial projects throughout the state has helped Scott fine tune the scheduling and budgeting aspects of projects, guaranteeing happy customers at the time their project is completed.

Born in Lexington, KY and raised in Englewood, FL since the age of two years old, Scott has had the pleasure of growing up in paradise. After attending the University of North Florida's Building and Construction program, Scott knew he always wanted to return to Englewood with his wife Kate to start a family and be closer to his parents, who have a local medical practice. Scott and Kate have two young children, and as a lover of the outdoors, Scott enjoys fishing, golfing and riding motorcycles in his free time.

As vice president of Capitol Building, Kate Knapp works with clients during the building process, answering questions and keeping homeowners up to date on the progress of their home. Kate is also a licensed real estate sales associate, and can assist clients in purchasing land, or in the sale of a current home.
