(JECharlotte.com), a Venice-based construction company that provides a full range of services, recently began the 2,700-square-foot psychiatric unit expansion for Centerstone of Florida Inc., a not-for-profit organization that offers state of the art mental health and addictions care.
Slated for completion in August 2016, construction on the $540,000 project began this month.
