Community outreach is not only a top priority for Barton Malow Company, but part of our corporate culture. The ability to make a difference in our
community and have a positive effect on others are just a few reasons why we as a company and as individuals are so dedicated to the people and world around us.
To showcase the support for our community, Barton Malow Company’s Orlando office proudly provided construction management services for a local urban outreach program, Frontline Outreach. The project was a new family pavilion, constructed on their site and used to provide an outdoor gathering place for the families and communities that the Christian-based organization serves.
The pavilion consisted of a 44’ x 44’ freestanding structure on a 48’ x 48’ concrete slab, with adjacent barbeque slab. Seating more than 140 students, the pre-engineered structure includes both Douglas Fir and Red Cedar lumber. Other elements of this project include fluorescent lighting, ceiling fans, and protected outlets and switches.
Partnering with Barton Malow Company for the project is the City of Orlando, L2 Studios Architects, and Mims Construction Company, a local M/WBE firm. These companies as well as members of the community showed up on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 to break ground on this exciting project, and then came again at it’s completion and dedication ceremony.
The opening of the pavilion coincided with Frontline’s Annual Benefit Luncheon for Children and received rave reviews from Orlando City dignitaries including Commissioners, government representatives, and CEOs and Presidents of many of the city’s largest corporations.
The pavilion has been enjoyed by Frontline and the families that they serve, and has become an integral part of their facility.
