RLH Wins Merit Award For Jaguar Of Orlando

IMG_0041RLH Construction has received an Award of Merit in the Commercial ($1-$5 million) Category of the Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc. (ABC) annual Excellence in Construction competition for its Jaguar of Orlando project. RLH expanded the Jaguar of Orlando dealership with the new construction of a parking deck, service shop, and service drive.

Building over an existing retention pond on a site with no access on three sides in a busy, high-end commercial area made this a logistically complex project. The Filigree Wideslab Method was used to construct a 100-space parking deck.

IMG_0064Jaguar’s new service department tripled in size: the number of service bays increased from 7 to 12, a two-lane service drive was added, and five service offices further enhanced Jaguar’s ability to serve its customers. The old service shop was renovated into an elegantly-appointed showroom with seven sales offices and a hospitality suite.

The parking deck was built on top of an existing retention pond. It is elevated 8 feet off the bottom of the pond, with several columns and retaining walls surrounding the perimeter.
