Paul West is a Sarasota native. He started his construction career in 1995 as a form carpentry helper building Doctor’s Hospital on Cattleman and Bee Ridge Rd. Later he moved to Tampa and continued to gain experience working for a national carpentry company. He started as a helper and advanced to become a foreman in a short period of time. By the age of 21 Paul had earned a position of crew leader. He continued to advance his career and went on to run multiple crews as a supervisor. In 2003 Paul partnered with another carpenter to start a carpentry business providing rough and finished carpentry services which serviced custom home builders in the Tampa Market. In 2013 Paul relocated back to Sarasota where he met Mike Cocozza. Paul has worked with Mike and Jesse Cocozza managing framing and trim crews for the better part of a decade.
Paul’s attention to detail, coupled with his incredible work ethic, helped to propel Trinity Custom Construction (Trinity Construction & Design’s sister carpentry company) to the most respected carpentry company in the Sarasota market. Having proven himself an effective leader, in 2022 he accepted a superintendent position at Trinity Construction & Design.
Paul is a devoted volunteer at Mote Marine and when not at work enjoys living the Florida outdoor lifestyle hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and diving. Paul is also an incredible chef!
