Two West Michigan-based general contractors are building a new $25 million senior care residential center in Punta Gorda, Fla.
Zeeland Township-based Midwest Construction Group Inc. and Grand Rapids-based Owen-Ames-Kimball Co. formed a joint venture to construct a three-story, 92,000-square-foot assisted living center for Florida-based Mueller Development Group LLC.
The companies expect to begin work on the project in November.
“We decided to do this as a joint venture with Owen-Ames-Kimball because they are established builders in Florida and already have the skilled tradesmen and workforce,” Scott Geerlings, president and partner of Midwest Construction, said in a statement. “We saw it as a project that would bring our mutual skills together.
Owen-Ames-Kimball will provide on-site construction work, while Zeeland-based Midwest Construction will serve as construction manager.
The project, called Cloudberry Lodge at Burnt Store Presbyterian, will include 102 residential units on a 5-acre campus and include dining rooms, physical therapy space, exercise facilities, spa, lounge and theater. It is slated for completion in 2020.
Owens-Ames-Kimball is wrapping up another project in Florida, where it’s had offices for about 40 years. The firm is completing a $16 million, 65,000-square-foot medical facility for the Family Health Centers of Southwest Florida Inc. in Fort Myers.
