VENICE, Fla. — Venice-based commercial construction company, J.E. Charlotte Construction Corp. (JECharlotte.com), has been selected to build the new facility for Animal Medical Center of Lehigh Acres in Lehigh Acres, Fla.
J.E. Charlotte Construction is currently assisting veterinarians Dr. Whitney Whitford and Dr. Charley Whitford with pre-construction phase services and acting as the construction manager. The husband-and-wife team is planning a multiphase project, including a new veterinary clinic and boarding facility.
The first phase of the project includes building a 12,000-square-foot veterinary medical center with day boarding and grooming services. The second phase of the project will include a second detached building of 10,000-square-foot full-service pet resort.
“We are extremely excited to be working with J.E. Charlotte Construction on our new location for the Animal Medical Center of Lehigh Aces and pet resort,” said Dr. Charley Whitford. “The new full-service hospital and pet resort will be designed with our guest’s comfort in mind. We want our hospital and pet resort to reflect our community’s love and respect for pets and exemplify how strong the human-animal bond can be.”
The existing facility is located at the corner of Lee Boulevard and Joan Boulevard at 2920 Lee Boulevard in Lehigh Acres. The new facility will be built approximately five miles down the road from the present location at the corner of Lee Boulevard and Leonard Boulevard.
The project is slated to start in the first quarter of 2017. The Bacon Group, Inc. has been selected as the design firm on the project.
