Nazih B. Hardan
Executive V.P.,

Since 1984, Nazih Hardan has been bringing his ethic of hard work and his penchant for perfection to Miami’s construction industry. As a licensed general contractor and developer, with a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Miami, he has been at the helm of a number of enterprises, building everything from high-end shopping centers and chain restaurants to churches, golf communities and multi-million dollar homes.

For Nazih, a native of Lebanon, building is a family tradition, almost a way of life. His grandfather was a mason who cut stones from the mountains of Lebanon to build churches. Years later, his father erected a cathedral upon the same grounds. And at just 10 years old, Nazih began helping his father build churches every summer.

Today, as a principal at L&H Partners, Nazih wears more than a construction hat. He runs the construction department, which means he’s responsible for estimating; site inspections and evaluations; relationships with architects, engineers and surveyors; interactions with building departments; the selection and approval of subcontractors; as well as hiring project managers and superintendents.

Nazih’s vast technical and building expertise gives him an unmatched ability to offer practical Value Engineering services on every project L&H Partners takes on.

And in keeping with family tradition, he’s still building places of worship. In fact, it is Nazih’s dream to see his children marry in a church he has built.
