Recently, team members from Gates McVey Butz, Naples Community Hospital staff, and community members alike congregated to watch the commemorative raising of the beam at the $15 million NCH Briggs Health Pavilion.
Raising the beam is one of the construction industry's oldest customs, signifying the "topping out," and blessing of a safely completed structure. Gates McVey Butz, the general contractor for the state-of-the art, 3-story Pavilion located on Fourth Avenue North, is extremely pleased with the outcome of the project, which is scheduled to be completed on schedule, even in the aftermath of Hurricane Wilma this past summer.
Todd Gates, President and CEO of Gates McVey Butz spoke at the event, honoring those whose diligence and steadfastness proved fruitful in getting the job done. Guided tours were given of the Pavilion which will overlook downtown Naples and provide a variety of medical services and some of the newest fitness equipment on the market.
Completion of the entire 80,000 square foot Briggs Pavilion is scheduled for October 2006.
