Roy began his career in the construction business right after graduation by serving as an estimator, scheduler, superintendent, and project manager for a local developer/contractor. Roy worked on projects ranging from commercial buildings and condominiums in Sarasota, to the construction of the Feather Sound Golf Course and Country Club here in Clearwater.

By 1976, he formed Roy Newsome General Contractors, Inc., and for the next nine years, RNGC served as a general contractor, construction manager, and structural concrete subcontractor on luxury single family estates, condominiums, apartments, shopping centers, banks, and churches.

In 1985, based on client demand, Roy established a new management and consulting company named RNGC of Florida, Inc. to assist owners, contractors, architects, subcontractors, and financial institutions in matters pertaining to construction estimating, cost control, scheduling, and field construction efficiency.

Sound Construction Group, Inc. was created in 1989 with Roy as the President and majority stockholder. For over 20 years now, Roy has been actively involved in all aspects of the business, continues to provide personal attention to each project, and is committed to meeting the goals and objectives of every client.
