Winter Park Construction (WPC) has left its mark on the multifamily development market in Florida for the past 40 years. The company is continuing that tradition and taking center stage in downtown Orlando this year by leading the construction of a new transit-oriented mixed-use development. 

“What’s great about having a 40-year history is that it allows us to tell a compelling story,” President Jeff Forrest says. “It’s interesting when a client comes to Florida with a new project to build and we can tell them our story about the numerous other projects we have built and experiences we have had. It gives us an advantage over new general contractors coming into the market trying to capture work because they can’t tell the same story.”

West Construction Services is a story of evolution. Brothers Kyle and Brent Westberg started the company in 1995, using Kyle’s architectural degree and Brent’s mechanical engineering degree as the foundation for their business. The brothers are also partners in the firm TDG Architects that they run along with another partner and TDG President Brian Gill.  Boasting the talents of the architectural firm allows West Construction Services the opportunity to offer design/build services ranging from mixed-use developments to commercial, multifamily and residential construction projects.   

West Construction Services (WCS) initially began its business by focusing on residential renovations and additions, which progressively led to spec homes.  In the early 2000s, WCS got its first opportunity to build a multifamily project – an affordable-living residence working with a nonprofit developer.

When the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) needs to make changes to its roadways, it turns to contractors such as Prince Contracting LLC. Project Manager Ryan Jackson notes that FDOT and government projects comprise the majority of the firm’s work.

“We used to do a lot of private work,” he says, explaining that all changed with the 2008 housing downturn. “We made a transition and started doing a lot of state work, which is getting quite a bit of help from stimulus packages.”

Prince Contracting is currently widening multiple portions of a four-mile stretch of Interstate 275 in Tampa, Fla. The company started work on the $30 million project in June 2012. “We’re scheduled to be complete this fall,” Jackson adds.

For Malino Construction LLC, its historic renovation projects serve a greater purpose: to help in the revitalization of Detroit while it makes its comeback as a great American city. 

     Fittingly, its current largest project is the renovation of the Palmer Park Historic District, which harkens back to Detroit in its heyday of the roaring ’20s. At Palmer Park, Malino Construction is revamping 14 rundown apartment buildings and vacant lots. Originally, Palmer Park’s buildings were constructed in magnificent Art Deco style but decayed over the years as the Motor City’s fortunes waned.

“The Art Deco style on these buildings is spectacular,” co-owner Mark Leipsitz says. Construction is now entering the seventh building onsite in the 202-unit apartment development. The Palmer Park Historic District is Malino Construction’s prize project. “There is a waiting list of people ready to move in once occupancy is completed in April 2014,” Leipsitz says.

Located in the sinkhole capital of the country, L.R.E. Ground Services Inc. has built a reputation over the past 25 years as the largest and most experienced sinkhole stabilization and construction and restoration services provider. 

Raymond and Susan Woolever founded the family owned and operated company in 1989 in Brooksville, Fla. Beginning with a staff of three, L.R.E. has grown into a company of more than 130 employees today. L.R.E. performs its services in Florida and is anticipating beginning work in Georgia and Louisiana in the next two years, Vice President and General Manager Frank Vitale says.

Associates work side-by-side with engineers to ensure residential and commercial projects meet industry specifications and standards. “We treat every property like it’s our own,” Vitale says. “We have been known to be one of the most thorough contractors out there, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and experienced staff. L.R.E. does everything to make the property look better than when we got there.”

Cleaning the job site is a daily routine for L.R.E. crews, as opposed to other companies that only clean-up when a job is complete. “We don’t want people driving by and knowing the home is being fixed or under construction,” Vitale explains. “We want people to think it’s just another day.” To ensure the client is up-to-date, L.R.E. associates also provide a summary of the job status after each day.
