As KHS&S Grew, So Did Scott Little’s Career

Scott Little couldn’t help but get into the construction business. With his father and older brothers doing residential drywall, Scott says he grew up “getting the paste up my nose.”

Starting as a drywall framer and hanger in the 1980s, Little rapidly advanced to superintendent, managing employees and contractors during the construction of interior and exterior finish systems. Little is now project manager and has experience in coordinating multiple projects. He has gained a reputation for meeting fast-track construction schedules and deadlines and has supervised more than 310 craftsmen at a single job site.

A lot has changed during his many years in the construction industry. Little says he has seen the techniques used advance from hard copy blue prints, to computers, to laying out a building on an iPad on the job site.

He admits that it’s difficult to pinpoint a favorite project, but says the themed projects such as Diagon Alley and Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios were the most memorable to him. He also points to large hospital projects, including Florida Hospital Women’s Pavilion and Nemours Children’s Hospital, as hallmarks of his team’s jobs well done. Little has been involved with many award-winning projects including Transformers, which won the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) award for the Central Florida Chapter.

“During the construction phase, it can be hard to imagine what the project will look like when it’s finished. Then you see the finished project, and you just say, ‘wow!’”

He credits KHS&S’s successful growth to the dedication of the teams who work on each project and a culture of innovation that “comes from the top.” He also believes that going the extra mile and paying attention to details has helped KHS&S gain a reputation as the “Cadillac” of the industry.  Another key asset is the loyalty of the staff, which he credits to the culture built by the owners who “truly care about the people.”  

When he’s not working, Little can be found watching college football, especially his favorite team, the University of Miami. Little and his wife have two grown children. He enjoys family vacations which have included cruises, enjoying the mountains in North Carolina and tubing in Helen, Georgia.
