GCM Contracting Solutions is building a new 10,000-square-foot warehouse and office complex for Greenscapes of Southwest Florida.
Greenscapes, a Naples-based landscape management company, will use the new facility on Lee Road in south Fort Myers to store and service lawn equipment, as well as hold business meetings and conduct staff training. The company will employ about 100 supervisors and laborers at the new location.
GCM Contracting, an industry leader in commercial construction and design-build services, is using tilt-up concrete construction to construct the one-story warehouse, offering supreme sturdiness, fire safety protection and hurricane resistance. Tilt-up also speeds up the construction timeline, with the Greenscapes project expected to be completed this fall.
“The new facility has a modern design with distinct architectural elements, and its interior features both office space and large warehouse areas to securely store equipment and chemicals,” said Robert Brown, owner and president of GCM Contracting Solutions.
GCM, which partners with architectural firms throughout Florida, selected Southview Studios of Fort Myers to provide architectural services for the Greenscapes project.
The new Greenscapes facility is located at 16100 Lee Road, just north of the heavily traveled Alico Road corridor in the San Carlos Park area of south Fort Myers. Its central location between U.S. 41 and I-75 will allow the company to better serve clients in Lee County, where it works with 75 to 100 homeowner associations. The family-owned company also has two branches in Naples and one in Punta Gorda.
“We’ve been serving Lee County clients from our North Naples office, so the new branch will put our landscaping teams and technicians closer to the residential communities we serve,” said Steven Pruchansky, CEO of Greenscapes of Southwest Florida. “We anticipate opening the new location in November, and will start hiring additional employees in the coming weeks.”
