Happy 4th from S+C!

by SCAdmin |

We are honored to work in an industry that has the opportunity to, both literally and figuratively, influence the building blocks of history. We can only hope that our buildings might have a chance to stand for something great.

As we prepare to gather with our families and watch the fireworks, we’d also like to look back at buildings that have become synonymous with our country’s history.

Building Blocks of Independence

It can be argued that Independence Hall is the most important building in the founding of the United States of America. Completed in 1756, and originally used as the Pennsylvania State House, it was outfitted in red brick by Edmund Woolley in a Georgian-style architecture.

The building was the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence (1776), the ratification of the Articles of Confederation (1781), and the development of the U.S. Constitution during the Constitutional Convention (1787).

Completed in 1922, Washington, D.C.’s Lincoln Memorial was built in the style of the ancient Greek temple, the Parthenon. Rising 30 feet off the memorial floor is a marble statue of Abraham Lincoln, a keystone that architect Henry Bacon thought would be appropriate for a president who defended democracy.

Since then, it has been an attraction for students and tourists, and a site for civil rights demonstrations and events. In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech from the steps of the memorial before a crowd of thousands.

S+C and PBC Team to Bring Steel Chef to I-Drive

by SCAdmin | , , , ,

Via Commercial Construction & Renovation Magazine, Posted on  by davidc@ccr-mag.com

Precision Building Construction LLC will be building a new restaurant and retail addition to a long-established motor lodge in the heart of the International Drive tourist corridor.

The construction cost of the project will be between $2 million and $3 million and work is expected to begin in the fall, said Chuck Hobus, president of Orlando based Precision Building Construction.

The new food and retail venue, with 5,300 square feet of leasable space, will be attached to the front of the 119-room Travelodge By Windham Orlando, formerly the Heart of I-Drive Hotel, at 7200 International Drive.  The facility will be named Steel Chef after one of its main tenants.

Steel Chef is a takeout restaurant concept. There will be a total of 26 leasable containers and they will be constructed where the three-story motor lodge’s front parking lot is located.

The project currently is in the design phase by Precision Building Construction and Scott Cormia Architects of Orlando. The target date for completion is summer of 2022.

“This new addition will provide a fresh, revitalized look for the property, and it will provide new shopping and dining options at a busy International Drive location,” noted Hobus.

Precision Building Construction is a major design/build firm with healthcare, retail, industrial and commercial projects throughout Central Florida.
