Fort Gatlin Shopping Facade

Shopping Plaza Façade by Orlando GC at Fort Gatlin

You need a General Contractor with experience when looking for a Commercial Renovation. There are special skills to complete the project. There are a lot of factors, both tangible and intangible to consider before you hire a professional construction contractor to work on your building. At S. A. Casey Construction, we aspire to be your Commercial Renovation General Contractor.

Here we feature a renovated façade for Fort Gatlin Shopping Plaza that we completed in Orlando. The first picture above and below shows the final renovated product. This was the main focal point of the facade renovation. The outside corner was also the tallest part of the facade renovation. The geometric shapes on this corner were made of aluminum as was the decorative two foot extension above it. This space will be a future restaurant.

The next image was taken before the Fort Gatlin Facade Renovation. This was the corner facade focal point before the renovation. There is a huge difference in height and the materials used originally were outdated.

Next we show a great before and after comparison. The end facade is where you can then see the three areas that will go up in height are low to today’s standards and also they were all the same height. We then show how we incorporated three different towers, the one closest is a medium height, the next is the decorative pergola, and the furthest in the picture is the main facade tower.

These next images show the area where the shopping center was protruding vertically compared to the long linier strip of the center. This part of the retail facade broke up the long one level of height by installing three rows of masonry units on the existing wall. With the walkway canopy removed it makes for a much cleaner and modern look.

This is what the right end tower looked like before the renovation. To build the tower, concrete footings and steel were used to raise the structure up to a modern level. This is the smaller end cap where an existing restaurant was and still is. We worked with the restaurant to make sure they were able to be open the entire time we were working on their facade tower. The new sign gives the tower facade a clean bright new look.

The corner retail facade tower was reinforced with steel and larger concrete footings to support the additional height and weight. The glass overhead door allows for the future restaurant customers to have an indoor/outdoor feel when dining. This will house a future restaurant. Cultured marble that resembles travertine marble was installed on the columns. At night, the lights at the cultured marble direct light up and down on the column.

This retail facade renovation end cap will house a brewery in the future. The decorative squares were made of EIFS to give a geometric look to the facade. The Pergola was made of aluminum to last for many years.

We finish the project review with the before picture of a large part of the shopping center. You can see how low the heights are. The walkway canopy cover was removed on the entire center. This end of the retail facade renovation shows where we added Palm Trees and Landscape to break up the quantity of asphalt parking on the project.

"Thank you so much for your help on completing VER's new 60,000 sq. ft. Orlando facility as our design-builder! After moving in and starting to operate out of the new building today, I felt compelled to take a few minutes and drop you this note of appreciation. Under the short time frame and budget with which we were working, you and Shawn's attention to detail and constant communication on this project not only allowed us to occupy the building within the shortest time frame, but also achieve a design and quality that specifically met our operational needs. Your efforts, resulting in designing, permitting and building out our new facility in 12 weeks was an amazing accomplishment, particularly with dealing with the County for permits and inspections, and my regularly ·making changes and adding scope to your contract right up to a day before our occupying the facility. I would strongly recommend you, Shawn, and SA Casey Construction to anyone considering hiring a general contractor or design builder in Florida. If there is ever anything I can do for you, Shawn or SA Casey Construction, do not hesitate to call."

"I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the showroom build out that you guys did for us at our Orlando headquarters office. I know that we pushed you guys hard to finish the job before our busy season and you were able to complete the job ahead of schedule even with dealing with the typical permitting and inspection issues that are common with this type of project. We have received numerous compliments on the appearance and quality of the work so from all of us at CE Florida we like to recognize the superintendent Jim and all his crews for a job well done. I'd also like to thank you for the move out work done at our former location. It was completed on time and was signed off on at our final walk through with no issues from our former landlord. I'll certainly use you guys for future projects as required and would highly recommend you for anyone looking to do remodel, renovation, or tenant build out work."
