WGI associates participated in an internal contest to pitch innovative ideas to improve the company, their work product, and the built environment.
Construction Update: Village on the Green (Longwood, FL)
The improvements included the expansion of the existing Village on the Green campus by adding 20 residential living villas, 40 assisted living apartments, an 18- unit memory support wing, a 48-bed replacement skilled nursing center, expansion of the residential living commons, and parking and access reconfigurations.
The project also includes improvements to open space for the residents, wetland mitigation, and coordination meetings with adjacent existing developments. The expansion was accommodated through the conversion and redevelopment of a portion of a former golf course.
The development team secured entitlements through Seminole County that ultimately allowed for the expansion, and change of use from a golf course, to an adult living facility. WGI also prepared civil engineering documents to obtain approvals with St Johns River Water Management District, Seminole County, and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The project included the development of a complex drainage system composed of multiple basins to accommodate jurisdictional criteria.
