Power Contracting, located in Palmetto has started construction to remodel and expand the Sarasota National Guard Armory. One goal of the construction is to “green-up” the aging building built in 1957 by updating all of the energy usage systems and achieve a LEED Silver certification. Construction is valued at just over $2 million. Nearly all of the armory personnel have been temporarily reassigned elsewhere during construction. Power is accelerating the construction schedule to bring them back to their new facility.
