The complexity of this project was increased due to the historical nature of the existing building, and the agreement between the church and the City that the southern façade be salvaged and incorporated into the proposed building structure. Wharton-Smith staff worked as part of the team to create solutions for these challenging conditions. Rick V.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the efforts to bring this project to Substantial Completion as of today. ON TIME! This is a great plant that will serve the Florida Keys for years to come. This would not have been possible without the hard work and teamwork that you all provided. Your commitment to this important project is very much appreciated and you should be proud of the accomplishment. Especially to pull it off on schedule down here in the lower keys.
