AVID Group® has recently been awarded contracts for the design of amenities for two new Pasco County residential developments. AVID Group® will provide landscape architecture and civil engineering services for the Stonebridge residential community for Chapel Creek Community Development District. The 900-home development will feature a 12-acre amenity that includes an aquatic facility and other recreational services. AVID Group® will also design the entry feature for this new development. AVID Group® will provide landscape architecture services at the 7,000-acre Bexley Park residential community for Newland Communities. AVID Group® will design community center amenities for the 12-acre facility as well as a lagoon pool, lap and volleyball pool, and a unique water slide.
For those of you that haven’t heard, AVID Group® is building a new corporate office on Race Track Road in Oldsmar, Florida. The building will be single story, approximately 30,000 SF in size and will be a “Green” building. That is the term applied to environmentally friendly building design. We are working with a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) consultant to help us get our building certified-green. This is very cutting edge and will ultimately lead to a new market for AVID Group® as a “green” engineering group. The Class ‘A’ office space will also have state-of-the-art IT infrastructure. Our goal is to have permits and start construction by mid-June, and move in the first quarter of 2008. Bob Pierro is our Project Manager for the project.
