Meghan Ford Taylor of West Palm Beach joins family’s building business

Meghan Ford Taylor grew up in West Palm Beach and has always been a problem-solver. She would beg her mother to give her long-division math problems to do for fun. Growing up in with her father, George Ford, in the construction business, pursuing a degree in architecture seemed like a natural path.

Meghan Ford Taylor, 37, of West Palm Beach works with her family in construction and design.

Ford Taylor, 37, is now a licensed architect, interior designer and construction project manager for her family’s business, Seabreeze Building. In this capacity, she has been involved in several high-profile recent projects in Palm Beach and Jupiter.

Among them was her role as a leading member of the design team for the historic Duck’s Nest restoration project in Palm Beach. Duck’s Nest is Palm Beach’s second-oldest home and the recipient of the 2020 Robert I. Ballinger Award given by the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.

“I’m really proud of my involvement in the restoration of the historic Duck’s Nest,” she said. “The landmarked house was structurally unsound and there were a lot of hurdles with completing the project in 2020 and making it the house it is today.”
