“The Alair Sanibel team is honored to be part of this year’s Gator100,” said Harris. “Collaboration is key for Alair Homes. Our ability to come together, train, grow and go forth to put those best practices into our luxury custom homes is what allows us to stay on the cutting edge of the custom home industry. We are proud to inspire fellow Gators in the pursuit of Going Greater.”
Harris joined Alair Homes as a partner in July of 2016. He graduated from the University of Florida in 2003 as a Master of Engineering in Construction Management.

The Gator100 honors the achievements of its alumni with a special awards event that was held on April 22, at the University of Florida. The recognition creates opportunities to increase networks with current and past honorees, inspire fellow Gators in the pursuit of Going Greater, and increases national, local and industry visibility. As a Gator honoree, Harris was also invited to spend the afternoon at the state-of-the-art UF Engineering Innovation Institute, which serves as a nexus of engineering innovation, entrepreneurship education, and experiential programs that transition almost 1,000 UF engineering technologies and innovative students annually to the marketplace. Harris heard about the latest program achievements and looks to collaborate with the program as they launch the new student company incubator which will link UF student startups to successful alumni entrepreneurs.
