Associated Builders and Contractors of North Florida Recognizes Westminster Oaks, General Contractor Cook Brothers Inc. and Architects ELM with Prestigious Eagle Award
ORLANDO, Nov. 22 – Westminster Oaks and Westminster Communities of Florida are delighted to announce that our newest neighborhood in Tallahassee, Canopy Oaks, has been recognized by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of North Florida with its Eagle Award for First Place, Excellence in Construction.
This year’s award, shared with the project’s general contractor, Cook Brothers Inc. of Tallahassee and architects Ervin Lovett Miller (ELM) of Jacksonville, recognizes and celebrates outstanding projects built by North Florida ABC members and the workmanship of those who contribute. Teamwork and cooperation between general contractors, specialty contractors, and material suppliers are prerequisites for building excellence into any construction project.
“We are very pleased that Canopy Oaks has been recognized for excellence in construction,” said Chris Wickberg, Vice President of Construction and Design for Westminster Communities of Florida. “I’m very happy to have worked with Cook Brothers Inc. and ELM on this project, and that the older adults who choose to live at Westminster Oaks can enjoy such beautiful residences.”
Built by Cook Brothers Inc., and designed by architects ELM, the new Canopy Oaks features 40 spacious one- and two-bedroom apartment residences at the crest of a hill on our beautiful campus in Tallahassee. Residents will enjoy an active and independent lifestyle with a wide variety of activities and assistance. Canopy Oaks also houses a new, state-of-the-art Fitness Center and a new parking garage for the community.
“ELM provided architectural and landscape architectural services for Canopy Oaks. We have been involved since the inception as we planned for this important campus expansion,” said Russ Ervin, Principal at ELM. “It was truly a pleasure to work with the entire development team, from the leadership at Westminster Communities of Florida to Cook Brothers Inc., through the construction process. The quality and professionalism of the entire team made for a great experience and ultimately a well-deserved award winning project.”
Congratulations to Westminster Oaks, Cook Brothers Inc., the Westminster Communities of Florida Construction & Design Department and ELM for this prestigious recognition.
