Brasfield & Gorrie Begins Construction of Wekiva Springs Addition

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Brasfield & Gorrie announced the company marked the start of construction on a $9.8-million addition at Wekiva Springs Center during a groundbreaking ceremony on Aug. 19 in Jacksonville, Florida.

The 20,000-square-foot expansion will add 60 patient beds to the behavioral health facility and also includes a new 5,000-square-feet outpatient facility, dining renovation and site upgrades.

The project team will utilize integrated project delivery, a collaborative delivery method designed to improve construction efficiency, risk management and predictability of cost and schedule.

“This project will enhance the center’s ability to meet the needs of patients in Jacksonville, and we look forward to bringing these enhanced services to the community through a collaborative, team-based approach,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Erik Sharpe.

Serving as general contractor, Brasfield & Gorrie is teaming with UHS of Delaware and Harvard Jolly Architecture on this project, which will be completed in early 2015.
